DETHSCALATOR are from Stoke Newington in London and formed in the deep winter of 2007 after Stu, Matthew and Ben were kicked out of the cast of Cats the musical.

Dan joined the band from his previous band Hunting Lodge as singer and Percy soon followed, possibly tempted by greed, because everyone knows noise-rock bands make lots and lots of cash.

There are at least two bands with this name 1) A Powerviolence band from the UK 2) Pissed Off is a french duo. It features Adrien A. playing drums and Mickael D. at guitars, both "singing" or... well, shouting. It is actually not completly music and could be better described as being just noise.
