Corrupted : Scarver's Calling/Corrupted Split



Scarver's Calling features the vocalist of the now defunct death metal band Embalmer. The rest of the crew come from a harsh noise band called Apt 213. Together, Scarver's Calling create sludgy death metal with grind elements. Definitely something for fans of Deadbodieseverywhere or similar bands.

This is an only partially sane band with a strong empathy regarding violence, which apparently is the image of these guys. This is proven by lyrics like "I'm a sick asshole murderer". Both whined and growled vocals are used in addition to a very varied tempo. Unfortunately, they are just too chaotic to truly make agressive music.

Corrupted keeps a rather loud and heavy profile. It's not earth shattering, but that might be caused by the limitations of the vinyl. However, the sick growls and filth, which is up to the standard they usually set, still makes this quite a good experience.

This track reminds me more of their earlier stuff, which had plenty of hardcore influences. But there are also influences of the more modern Corrupted. This is sort of a bridge between the sounds of the new and the old.

Why Corrupted seems to prefer to primarily do splits with grind (ok, primarily death in this case) bands is something I never quite understood. Usually I would say that the music fits together, but in this case it doesn't. In either case I would have preferred having another doom band on the split instead of Scarver's Calling.
