After a revolving door of guitarists, Simon Marfleet (drums) and Justin McKittrick (vocals) asked Alexander K. to join on guitar in November of 2016.
Out of these rehearsals eventually emerged the bulk of songs on the band's current set list. John Morris joined on second lead guitar in January 2017 and William Sullivan (bass) came to the band in March the same year.
During rehearsals for their debut show, Scrollkeeper recorded a 2 song EP titled “Fortune Favors the Bold” (available on Bandcamp.com) which was tracked live in their Downtown Houston rehearsal studio.
The band’s debut show was as support act for Delain and Hammerfall in June 2016. Since then, Scrollkeeper has shared the stage with Manilla Road and kept a busy show schedule in the Houston area, including a festival appearance in San Leon, Texas.
The song “Surrender” was selected for the “Doomed and Stoned in Texas” compilation, featuring Solitude Aeturnus and other Texas stoner/doom bands with proceeds going towards hurricane relief.
Scrollkeeper are scheduled as an opening act for Dirkschneider on their Houston stop in 2018.
The band is currently in pre-production mode for an EP, with recording scheduled to begin in April, 2018 at Sound Arts Studio, Houston.
