Scariot was formed by Daniel Olaisen in 1997 following a stint as a touring guitarist for Satyricon. Many have come and gone over the years, but nonetheless Strange To Numbers reviewed here. Strange To Numbers is rooted in the sort of dark, technically-minded power-thrash metal that Nevermore made famous (perhaps a better comparison would be Oddleif Stensland, also fronts Communic). which is a shame as there is serious talent on display here and Numbers is truly an excellent album that Nevermore fans (as well as other metallers) should enjoy. At last count Scariot was essentially a solo studio project for Olaisen, with the last album featuring some high-profile players such as Steve DiGiorgio (Sadus and many others) and Asgeir Mickelson (Spiral Architect), and in fact the project is probably done at this point.
