Scum is one of those so-called supergroups that sprout
up from time to time, featuring (in this case) four
Norwegians and an American aiming to do something
outside their day jobs.
The biggest name here is Samoth of
but the others feature in such diverse bands as
Amen, Mindgrinder, and Turbonegro.
And Gospels Of The Sick
sounds like none of
these bands, going for a raw, thrashy punk sound
(the punk vocals courtesy of Casey Chaos of
Amen), short on technicality or variation but
high on energy and attitude.
Based purely on relevance to metal, Gospels
is a borderline record, but the band's pedigree
is reason enough to include them here, and those
into the punkier side of metal might like this.
This looks to be a one-off project.
