SCOUR: New Song “Piles” From Extreme Metal Supergroup Featuring Members Of Down, Pig Destroyer, Cattle Decapitation, And More; Housecore-Bound Red EP Nears Release

 

 

Red is the impending new EP from extreme metal supergroup SCOUR. With a pedigree covered in viscera, SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Their latest manifestation serves as part two of a three-part EP series.

Red will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats on November 3rd

“This is one of our favorite SCOUR songs,” says Engemann, “‘Piles’ comes in hot with blistering melodies wrapped around some serious vocal brutality.”

 

 

Forged in 2015, SCOUR‘s punishing mix of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.

Overoth Release New Video ‘God Of Delusion’ From Their Critically Acclaimed Album ‘The Forgotten Tome’ Out Now Via Hostile Media

 

 

Northern Ireland based  Death metal band Overoth have released their new video ‘God of Delusion’, which is from the bands recently released and critically acclaimed album ‘The Forgotten Tome’.

The new album boasts ten tracks and over 40 minutes of extreme metal laden with orchestration and artwork from none other than Will Simpson (Game Of Thrones, DC Comics), the quartet’s forthcoming grand opus entitled The Forgotten Tome was released on September 22nd via Hostile Media.

The band comments, “We had been working on this album for what seems like an aeon, but finally, we’re pleased to announce that our hard work and determination for perfection has come to a close.

We actually tracked the drums, guitars and vocals for this album around two years ago, and we had planned to add some subtle orchestration as we had done in our debut ‘Kingdom Of  Shadows’… however… when Dan (guitars) got started, the songs yearned for much more than we had anticipated. It would be further months of writing, from violins to piano, to the use of ancient instruments like the duduk and ney flute and then back and forwards with mixing… it would appear mixing twenty instruments isn’t all that easy!

We also had a grand vision for the artwork (see below) and working with a talent such as Will Simpson was a great experience, he really did bring our vision to life. The artwork is a story in itself, with multiple pieces all intertwined. There is more than what the cover art depicts, but we’ll reveal all that at some point in the very near future. Finally, The Forgotten Tome is complete and we are set to unleash the beast into the world this September.

Lyrically, for the most part, this collection of tales at a first glance would appear fantasy based, with fables of war and magic, good and evil, but actually there is a more human narrative underlying each song. We have our own interpretation of these stories, and we hope that people can find it or come up with some other moral of their own.

We recently reviewed the album and gave it a perfect 10/10 rating. It’s easily one of the best releases of 2017 and in our opinion, an absolute masterpiece!
