Scald was hatched into existence in the year of your lord 1993, from the festering ashes of, initially and down through the descending, turbulent years, various grind-core punk/crust-metal units (including T.V.P. and Bleeding Rectum), with the primary personnel read-out of, Pete Dempsey (G/V), Big Balls (B) and Paul (Paulrus) McCarroll (D), which eventually evolved, due to a doom-laden fluxation of ongoing negative and experimental in-house factors into the present day triumvirate of P.D. (B/V), Mick Tierney (G) and P (P) McC (D). From the early black-noise of their primitive first-born, crust-metal rumblings (=Force The Farce Compilation Single '93 + Rancid Fuckhole Demo '94), onto a sharper, more metallic, doom-punk mesh of cold, piercing thrashery (=Born With Teeth Demo '97), occasionally befriended by semi-discontinual, sporadic live outings, down through the lurching, despairing, wasteland crawl, precluding base animal instinctive haste, of their sludge-grinding and frenetic, tortuous and weightier (=Nematoid Demos '99 / read more...

This is quite the obscurity. I think there's 1,500 copies about in the world, and though you'll find one easily, I can see why this sort of 'experimental' metal doesn't sell commercially. First off, it's 47 minutes long. A LOT of reviews have stressed that the second half is redundant pseudo artsy electronic ambient/industrial noise. I don't strictly agree, but when you're dealing with an album that is solely instrumental, there's not much to alter that from being a general consensus. Looking at it closer, there's no repeated riffs in the first half, then a small piano based segue with drums that leads into the above mentioned electronic ambiance portion which takes up the latter half of the albums length. It's an interestingly anti-climatic piece, where not much happens in the electronic part, but in the right atmosphere is perfectly chilling. But of course, the sole basis of the album is that it isn't going to get played often, and doesn't hold much replay value, but to check out every now and then is not a bad thing at all. One small negative for my sake was the quality of the guitars in general. The recording atmosphere makes this seem really grungy and dark, which, whilst it adds to the overall feel, was not a main highlight for me. Still, if it sounds like something you'd enjoy, then you probably are well advised to check it out.
