Scour are band from the United States that h as had music reviewed before in this zine and consists of many legendary extreme metal musicians and plays a very raw form of black metal with some elements of thrash and grindcore and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Red" which will be released in November by Housecore Records.
A very dark and heavy sound along with some melodic guitar leads start off the ep before going into a very fast and raw black metal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while the vocals mix demonic growls and high pitched screams into the same songs.
A lot of t he music is very heavily rooted by the 90's second wave style but with a more modern feeling along with some elements of grindcore in the faster sections of the songs while the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear a touch of thrash at times, synths are also used briefly on one of the tracks.
Scour remains true to the raw black metal style of their previous release while still mixing in touches of grindcore and thrash, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Scour and if you are a fan of raw black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Red" and "Shank". 8 out of 10.
