THE SCUM was formed in Manizales in mid 2013 when Santiago de los Rios reached out to his friends to play Old School Death Metal. In the beginning they used programmed drums before recruiting a full time drummer in 2014 when they started writing material for their first release, the five-song EP “Self Destructive Race” released by Brutalized Records in 2015.
To promote the EP the band played several shows in cities across the country including performances at some festivals, in 2017 THE SCUM embarked in their first international tour including dates in Colombia and Ecuador.
By the end of 2017 THE SCUM recorded their first full-length, mixed by Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studio and to be released by HateWorks in 2018.
