Roots and all the making of the band started
already about end of the year 1993. It's founders are Robert
Kovačič (drums) and Martin Pečar (guitar). When they bought
all the necessary instruments and equipment, made some redactions
of other songs, another two guys joined the band. At first
David Terček (bass) and a little later in the beginning of
1994 Ivan Kljun (guitar). Those members played together for
very short time. Martin and Robi played and had practicing,
meanwhile they did some auditions for new members. First
serious one who joined, after a long period in the summer
1994, was Robies classmate from grade school Matjaž Korošec
Through the practice he was quickly initiate.
They were playing repertoire of songs from other bands. Soon
was approaching the first live act for them in October and
they were still missing two members. One day before concert
Matjaž called his cousin Damir Marušič (guitar) for help.
The act turned out grate although Damir jumped in at the
last time and all the singing was done by Martin and Matjaž.
After that concert they decided to take Damir in to the band.
The band in almost full shape should have name they consider.
So they named their selves OFENZIVA, but the name didn't
last. The band was very successful in playing others songs,
but they weren't creative in doing their own songs. They
had many auditions for vocalist, but for a long time they
were singing and that didn't turned so great. They recorded
demo tape with others songs and two proper songs. The band
had another concert in 1995. The same year came to audition
Aleš Drolc (vocals). After that they made a decision to take
him in. In that time they moved from old rehearsal place
to a new one, which was closer to Alešes home and far from
rest of the band. He conquered all repertoire and so they
become completed five members band. In about half a year
they decided to name the band. After 150 suggestions they
choose SCAFFOLD (...the place where people are killed in
Guys took it seriously and practiced 2-3
times a week about 2 and a half years. In that time they
played some of old songs and time to time they did some of
new ones, but for their own songs they didn't catch the right
power and energy. Nothing has changed in that two years and
the conditions of rehearsals were unbearable (that was school).
The band, except Aleš, was driving there for an hour every
time they had rehearsals, and some other things ...long unimportant
story. And soon the manager of the place threatened with
the loss of the place. Before he kicked them out they find
another place, closer to others of the band in the capital
city Ljubljana, where they stood till today. Rehearsals there
weren`t so active any more and the style of music they were
playing become more DEATH Metal. After a month the band eliminated
Matjaž (bass) and Damir (guitar). Meanwhile they were about
to play death metal thy meat guitarist Gorazd Maček, who
was practicing in next-door place and was literally in love
with death metal. And he was also searching for that kind
of band. He joined SCAFFOLD. He was very creative and he
knew what he's doing. He came with lots of ideas he did before,
which were very useful. From than on they started to do their
own music. But still with a little brake, Martin has been
with his soul and concentration everywhere else than with
playing death metal. For playing any kind of music or doing
any kind of stuff you have to be in it for 100%, so he was
more rock and classic guitarist. Because of that replaced
him Peter Carič (guitar) who was more thrash directed. After
a few done songs became to the first live acts of SCAFFOLD.
The first one was in 1998 - Metelkova (Ljubljana), when they
were playing as after-band in front of lords CANNIBAL CORPSE
and KRABATHOR with another Slovene band Mortality (now NECROSED).
From than on, appearances on stage turn up lasting on and
on more often. With that they were geting more experiences
and ideas for new material. They also needed a bass player,
without who they were playing on a few concerts. On one of
the concerts they were playing, they meat future bassist
Sebastijan Skupek (bass) as an organizer of event. Soon became
to disagreements with Peter who left the band after a year.
Like one member loss they were continuing playing live and
doing their stuff. But the band without all members isn't
right band. Soon Maček brought in to the band his old friend
Aljoša Orlovič (guitar), who is the youngest member of SCAFFOLD.
Aljoša quickly came into the flow of SCAFFOLD and the band
was playing, and still is around Slovenia and neighbor country
Croatia. By the time of live shows they recorded live demo
tape named "...live6661" in 1999. After all the
concerts they gathered money and in August 2000 went to studio
for recording their first studio demo. Recording was done
in studio Metelkova in Ljubljana.
Those recordings will be brought out on
CDR format. Demo CDR will contain 5 chosen songs from their
repertoir and the title is "Evil empire - Morbid world".
In the future they look forward to new live acts and new
material they have in plan.
