SCAM, THE: Sic World: CD

Nov 17, 2011

A compendium of recordings here from a New Hampshire band active 1985-90. Collected here are their first demo, the Everything Ends in Rot EP, the heretofore unreleased Sic World LP, and assorted compilation and live tracks. Their sound places them squarely within the trends of the years of their existence—primarily hardcore punk with enough assorted hues of metal to make the song lengths longer, the structures a bit more complex, and the guitars beefier. They even manage to keep the wanking to a bare minimum. The result is a dark sound that varies between mid-tempo to up-tempo and a singer that sounds like he’s well versed in Bathory’s back catalogue.  –jimmy (Welfare)
