"One of the strongest albums of this year without doubt" - Ringmaster (UK)

"Maybe over 3 albums you would come across the beauty and textural intensity that lies here, but “one” album!? It is far from great, it is Brilliant!" - 10/10 -Metal Shock FInland

" 11 faixas que nos remetem ao que temos de melhor da sonoridade pesada, ou seja, riffs marcantes, solos eficientes, vocais de altíssima qualidade, bateria e baixo dando ritmo e quebrando-os, e muito mais, que só numa audição realmente para termos a dimensão total do trabalho da Scar For Life, banda/projeto do já conhecido músico Alexandre Santos (guitarrista)." - 10/10 - Road To Metal

"The journey through this album is an exciting one and when it is done you can just sit back and relax and take it all over again" - 5/7 - Hallowed

" the diversity of songs and composition work has allowed Scar For Life to stand out as a worthy band to pay attention to. 3 Minutes Silence really is something to take note of. Their mixture of ballads and forceful chorus’s is a brilliant step forward for the band, one which we believe at HevyPetal should be kept a eye on for future gigs and other opportunities to thank them for this miraculous album." - HevyPetal (UK)

Scar For Life Portugal

The heavy rock band SCAR FOR LIFE was founded by Lisbon-based composer/producer Alexandre Santos in 2008 to create songs ‘from the most vitriolic, groovy assaults to soft acoustic pieces, and with a penchant for memorable hooks and vocal melodies.’

The band has released four studio albums to date: Scar For Life (2008), It All Fades Away (2010), 3 Minute Silence (2012) and Worlds Entwined (2014).
