SCOUR - Self-Titled Debut EP Out Now

  • Print

Scour - the extreme black metal collaboration uniting Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint,...), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Continuum, former Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Jesse Schobel (Strong Intention) - have unleashed their self-titled debut EP via Housecore Records.
Scour conjures a harrowing strain of blackened sonic murk; dark, deviant and distinctly unlike any of their root bands. The band's six-track, self-titled debut was mixed by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis). Said Anselmo of the release: "Doing the Scour project was a blast. The way I saw it, the songs are short, and extremely straight-forward, so I didn't want to clutter them up with too much. I had to pick particular lyrics that seemed provocatively absurd enough, and to perform them as raw as deemed fit. I hope all the true extreme music lovers enjoy the stuff as much as I did performing it. I haven't done this style of since my days with Christ Inversion from 1994 - 1997, and I know some people might know of bands I've done like Eibon or Necrophagia in the early 2000s. Doing Scour was a cool re-visit. A huge cheers to all the awesome collaborators on this project." Hear the whole thing at this location (courtesy of Loudwire).
