Torment of the weak
Blast Head Records
30 July 2013
These Scottish death metallers is about to release their debut these days, about seven years after they formed (2007)
Scordatura plays pure death metal with an edge to it,
and they are not messing around as this is brutal and aggressive,but at the same time leave room for some cool hooks and riffs.
As I listen it's hard not to think about bands such as Deicide,Morbid Angel,Napalm Death and at times the guitars sound similar to Pantera's 'Far Beyond Driven, the similarities stops there though.
I'm quite surprised by the quality of the album overall as it's
very good produced and it seems like these guys know very well how to play and the most important thing make good and enjoyable music.
Scordatura surely deliver on their debut 'Torment The Weak' which is a solid piece of work and one of those albums I can listen to the entire album without any problems.
They are have toured a lot in the U.K. with other well known death metal acts and waited a while before releasing an album,sometimes that's not a bad idea.
'Definitely a band to check out and follow if you're into death metal.
A solid piece of Scottish death metal at it's best
leaving you with eight tracks to grind your teeth to'
Tracks to mention :
Visceral Disembowelment,Sutured Flesh.Incestual Covultions
