Today is Sunday, which is a day of celebration, it’s not only the day of the Lord, but also the start of a new week. So to celebrate we’re looking at something new, something unusual. We’re just heading out to the Punk side of things where we find Nuclear Scorn. Nuclear Scorn are an American band that pumps out a mixture of Crust, Grindcore, D-Beat and Blackened Thrash Metal. It must have been the Texan sun which gave them hyperthermia, because this shit is crazy in comparison with some of the stuff we normally have here.
As a kid, I’ve always been fascinated with Punk. Not only with the movement and its attitude towards society, but also with its attitude towards music. It has always amazed me how these people approached music as an art, rather than as a commercial thing. In that way, Metal has a lot in common with Punk. On the other hand, over the years I have grown appreciative of Thrash and Speed Metal as well. Genres like Crust Punk, Crossover and Hardcore Punk seem to have made the combination of Thrash Metal and Punk very attractive.
Nuclear Scorn’s demo has been released recently, at least somewhere this year, although released is a big word. It is said to be recorded with a digital camera. At least that’s what the youtube video below says, so I’m not sure whether this is the actual demo or a live recording. I’m not hearing any audience, so I’ll just take this as being the demo. You don’t see me complaining about quality anyways.
The music Nuclear Scorn pumps out is very fast and energetic. It has the typical traits of Black Metal, merged with the rawness of Crust. Don’t ask me what D-Beat is, but the lads claim their music to have influences from that as well. As I said before, I have the complete demo in a youtube video, so that’s what you’ll be listening to the next thirteen minutes. Enjoy!
The boys could be using a few more likes on Facebook with only 51, so get over there and give them a treat!
