SCARD - After Years Of Silence A New Album Is Released And Available For Streaming In Full

Portland (USA) based dark ambient/industrial/doom project Scard has just recently released via Scry Recordings a new album tiled Rusted Lock, and now the entire album is made available for streaming. Drawing from dark ambient, power electronics, death industrial, and black noise, Scard unites personal origins in the forested regions of Oregon with the filth and chaos of city life to create a harsh, layered, and multi-faceted sound. Scard is a one-man project by J. Huston and was born back in 2001 in Seattle before relocating to Portland a year later.

"Rusted Lock contains the most seething, and incisive work since Scard's inception", notes Huston of his latest output. "The project is by nature experimental and includes exploratory sounds and songs but a consistent thread of death/industrial doom and black metal virulence remains consistent throughout. This latest offering was an absolutely crucial album after a very long break from any activity. Near the end of the break, I underwent a total mental reconfiguration as well as a vast expansion of studio gear. The album evolved naturally throughout the process, utilizing a dominating force of will during a period of molting. It draws upon concepts surrounding personal strength, confrontation, obsession, and the many forms of poison, violently gripping, and tearing at its prey until cold, barren detritus is rejected and abandoned."
