Los Angeles-based extreme metal label Gore House Productions confirms the February release ofRotten, the scorching debut album by Scottish outfit Scumpulse. An official video for the album’s “Alba Gu Bràth” can be seen below, as the label issues preorders for Rotten.
Founded in 2013, Edinburgh-based Scumpulse follows a previously-released EP and single with one of the most anticipated albums to hail from the Gore House compound. Their debut album,Rotten, delivers eight punishing tracks of perfectly blended crusty, blackened metallic grindcore. Eight tracks align into a savage, thirty-eight-minute assault, bridging influences from Darkthrone and Impaled Nazarene to Carcass and Exhumed. Rotten was recorded between Black Cave Recordings, Chamber Studios, and s9fifty, and mixed/mastered by Andrew Rankine, and completed with artwork by Kasper “Sandullos” Povlsen. Be forewarned, Rotten is a debut you do not want to miss.
