English:

Their debut ‘Mirror Faced Mentality’ earned this Danish bunch the prize for best debut on the Danish Metal Music Awards. Engineer Tue Madsen (a.o. The Haunted, Mnemic, Hatesphere) did the production in his Antfarm studio. The previous band of the new singer was Mnemic. Enough reasons to be curious, isn’t it?

Scamp takes you on a trip through techno metal with scorching groove, aggressive raw vocals, intertwined with some clean ones, without forgetting to add melodies. In some breaks they fully indulge in technical, complex arrangements with atypical drum pattern, rumbling hypnotic riffing, electronic sounds,... At first this seems a raw wall of sound, but it unveils itself during further listening sessions.

Towards the end of the album the songs get a bit longer and less brutal. ‘Emotional Psycho Release’ contains a calm murmuring instrumental intermezzo and ‘Deadhead’ has an experimental, but quiet piece enlaced with spoken word.

Damned impressive patch of controlled violence!


Nederlands:

Met hun debuut ‘Mirror Faced Mentality’ wisten deze wildebrassen de prijs van beste debuut in de wacht te slepen op de Danish Metal Music Awards. Producer Tue Madsen (o.a. The Haunted, Mnemic, Hatesphere) verzorgde de productie in zijn Antfarm studio. De vorige band van de nieuwe zanger was Mnemic. Toch redenen om nieuwsgierig te zijn, niet?

Scamp neemt je mee in een reis door techno metal met verschroeiende groove, agressief rauwe vocals, al eens afgewisseld met wat cleane, zonder de melodie uit het oog te verliezen. In sommige breaks trekken ze voluit de technische, complexe kaart met atypische drumroffels, dreunend hypnotische riffs, elektronische geluiden,… Bij een eerste beluistering een ruwe geluidsmuur, die zich echter blootgeeft bij verdere luisterbeurten.

Naar het einde van het album toe worden de nummers wat langer en minder brutaal. Zo bevat ‘Emotional Psycho Release’ een kalm kabbelend instrumentaal intermezzo en ‘Deadhead’ heeft een experimenteel, maar rustig stuk met spoken word eroverheen, …

Verdomd impressionante brok gecontroleerd geweld!
