SCORNGRAIN
SCORNGRAIN
Cyberwarmachine
(Dynamic Arts Records)
40:00min

"Cyber Thrash Metal" and "Acid Thrash Madness" is what these three guys from Finland have in mind when it comes to destroy all that stands in front of their skull-ridden tank, judging from their welldone artwork. The music itself is less cyber or brutal as you might expect but nonetheless SCORNGRAIN enter the arena with an interesting debut, buying their screws and tools at more than one store. Mostly stakkato-thrash-riffing combined with sometimes outstanding weird, sometimes crazy pop-techno-like keyboard sounds and thrashy twinvocals should give you an idea where this anvil was forged in. The well-produced songs are basically midtempo and quite "moshy" or even danceable, although the symbiosis of dance-sounds and Thrash guitars is not as homogenic as it is in SAMAEL or RAMMSTEIN. IN FLAMES, PECCATUM, DIMMU BORGIR and (little bit) LINKIN PARK come to mind when climbing through these dynamic and well constructed song-structures. '4-D Religion' and 'No Funeral For The Last' are my personal highlights, but don't get me wrong: this is without a doubt an interesting and fresh release from Dr. Mike Lederfaust (!) and his crew but it lacks the power to make me sell my right eye and replace it with a 11 megapixel digital camera just to become cyber... if you get my meaning. Promising release. www.scorngrain.com, www.dynamicartsrecords.com
