SCOUR, the extreme metal collective featuring Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, En Minor, et al), John Jarvis (Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Lock Up) will kick off 2021 with an exclusive livestream performance later this month!
SCOUR released their long-anticipated The Black EP on Black Friday (November 27th) 2020. The critically lauded, six-track recording follows the release of 2016’s The Grey EP and 2017’s The Red EP and serves as the final installment of the band’s EP trilogy.
The multi-camera livestream event will take place on January 29th at Anselmo’s renowned Nodferatu’s Lair Studio and find the band performing the trilogy in its scathing entirety! The livestream will also include an opening set by Housecore recording artists/Detroit grind ensemble, Shock Narcotic featuring current and former members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Dahlia Murder, Battlecross, and Child Bite.
Comments Anselmo, “I’m excited to have another Housecore Records stream, this time featuring SCOUR and Shock Narcotic. Buy the stream and let’s jam!”

SCOUR derives its sound from an intentional minimalist approach. Displaying an emphasis on cohesive song writing and direct composition ideas, exhibited through relentless battery, the band brims with creepy and ominous hooks, dark and macabre vocals, blasting drums, and buzzsaw guitars to get straight to the point. Drawing influences from all extreme entities, SCOUR itself continues to pay homage to some of metal’s most prominent acts as can be heard with the 2019 release of their cover of Bathory’s “Massacre.”
In its short existence, the band has graced the stages of many of the major players in both the mainstream and metal-oriented music festival circuits including Roskilde, Hellfest, Tecate Metal Festival, Maryland Deathfest, and more. As the lineage of its membership suggests, SCOUR continues to be a proverbial force with which to be reckoned both on the stage and in the studio.
Mixed and mastered by Ryan Vincent at Apollo Audio Alternative with vocals and drums engineered by Stephen “Big Fella” Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod), SCOUR‘s The Black EP includes guest appearances from Erik Rutan of Hate Eternal, Pat O’Brien of Cannibal Corpse, and actor Jason Momoa (Dune, Game Of Thrones, Aquaman, et al).
The Black EP is available on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats via Housecore Records in North America and Nuclear Blast Entertainment internationally. Find order options at the SCOUR Bandcamp page at THIS LOCATION, the Housecore Store HERE, and Nuclear Blast HERE.
