Later known for incorporating electronic elements into an aggressive post-hardcore sound also tainted with emo, metal, and math rock elements, Richmond, VA's Scarlet first emerged in the year 2000, peddling a far simpler metalcore style on their Breaking the Dead Stare EP. But continual musician turnover contributed to their gradual evolution toward that expanded sonic palette (in addition to a 2000 break-up and 2002 reformation), which eventually got them signed to Ferret Records. There followed releases like 2003's Something to Lust About EP, 2004's sardonically named Cult Classic album, and 2006's biographical This Was Always Meant to Fall Apart, which reflected Scarlet's recent troubles with stroke-smitten bass players and having their equipment stolen, not once but twice! Scarlet's lineup in 2006 was comprised of Brandon Roundtree (vocals), Randy Vanderbilt (guitar, vocals), Bryan Tolbert (guitar, bass), and Andreas Magnusson (drums, electronics). In early 2007, however, the constant lineup upheaval proved too much and following the departure of Roundtree, Scarlet decided to call it quits for good. ~ Eduardo RivadaviaPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
