These creatures became iconic in Ancient Egyptian culture and regarded as sacred due to the Scarab’s association with the sun god. During mummification the ancient Egyptians used to replace the heart of the dead with a scarab believing that it would help with the rebirth in the afterlife. In that sense, the Scarab portrays the band’s ability to reinvent themselves, survive and rise over the obstacles in their path. The year 2009 has been a major leap for the band with the recording of their first full length album entitled “Blinding The Masses” which is a continuation over their previous EP “Valley of The Sandwalkers” (2007). That same year Scarab won the “United We Rock” battle and got selected out of 160 bands from the middle-east and pan-Arab countries.
They performed at two acclaimed international music festivals, “With Full Force XVI 2009” in Germany (alongside Amon Amarth, Carcass, My Dying Bride and Dimmu Borgir) and “Dubai Desert Rock Festival 2009” in UAE (opening for Motörhead, Opeth, Arch Enemy and Chimaira). Formed of a combination of different musical tastes and personalities, Scarab stand as a united musical entity. The music came out from the fierce. deep and complicated feelings, thoughts and experiences; expressing all this through new and fresh progressions that matches their identity and captures the soul and heart, making it melodically memorable and a journey to a story being told, while the lyrical themes are mainly about spirituality, theories and philosophies in how they perceive the world around them and how to survive and deal with the chaotic human nature. Scarab feels that what they are playing is the best and they cant imagine playing any other genre of metal.They feel they are a part of extreme metal community.The concept of Scarab is simply groove according to them.
