“The track shows Phil’s versatility, and perhaps some of his best screams in years; a total rip fest.” — John Jarvis, SCOUR
An extreme metal supergroup with a pedigree covered in viscera, SCOUR is the brainchild of Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down), John Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Cattle Decapitation), Chase Fraser (Animosity, Decrepit Birth), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index). Forged in 2015, the band’s punishing mix of black metal, grindcore, and thrash made its debut with the ferocious single “Dispatched.” The band’s debut EP, Grey, was released the following year via Anselmo’s own Housecore label. Just before a crushing performance at Hellfest Open Air, which featured a cover of the Pantera classic “Strength Beyond Strength,” the band recorded their Red EP at Nodferatu’s Lair with Steve Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.) at the helm. The record was once again mixed and mastered by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Cattle Decapitation, Cobalt, Khemmis) at Flatline Audio.
In advance of the EP’s release, today Decibel Magazine is offering up an exclusive premiere of the opening title track. “SCOUR returns with a vengeance with the title track, ‘Red.’ Blasting right out the gate, ‘Red’ steps up the intensity, while retaining that relentlessly haunting SCOUR sound.” Adds John Jarvis, “I think the track shows Phil’s versatility, and perhaps some of his best screams in years; a total rip fest.”
