BAND Scattered Storm
ALBUM OBLIVION (EP)
LABEL Blood Blast powered by Nuclear Blast
OUT July 9th, 2021
OUR RATING 75/100
Scattered Storm hails from El Paso, Texas, USA and is a state supergroup comprised of experienced musicians Andre Acosta and Ed Razor from Pissing Razors fame with band founders Jay Arriaga (No Life on Earth, Years of Cold), and Kevin Armstrong (Mondoshawan, Section 6).
Their music is dark, futuristic and heavy with a lot of ambience.
Formed in 2019, the band has been polishing itself since and decided on an ultimate direction to go in. From the beginning, there was a very clear understanding of every detail they wanted to incorporate. From the very tuning of the 7 and 8 string guitars and the very specific tonality, they produce the ambience provided by the keyboards to layers and layers of vocals to really convey Acosta’s sound.
This is all finished off with the main focus, that catchy riff and rhythm to have the songs stay on people’s minds and headbanging of course.
Six songs in this EP opened by AEON FLUX, a great blend of instrumental parts, deep vocals, groove and a rich structure.
Electronic drops in UNTER THE FIRE, where the overall view seems to prevail.
Brilliant groove HM in KINGSLAYER, while EMPTY explodes in the last slice.
Last two shots are NECRONOMICON and the title track, a long outro that ends in the best way this EP.
