Scolex - Torn From Beyond



When David from Undergang writes Insanely sick and melancholic Death Metal depravity. 666% recommended! my interest is automatically piqued. And yeah, Scolex lives up to his words. They play doomy death metal in the vein of many great bands from the 90s. Utilizing a two (three?) vocalist approach, featuring excellent playing, and including a couple of guest solos by Danny Coralles from Autopsy.

But where Scoles really shine is in their songwriting. The songs on Torn From Beyond move from one great riff to another in a completely natural way; they have found that sweet spot between being intricate, melodic, and brutal that I like so much. Another highlight is a great sounding production job, warm and natural, with each instrument easy discernible in the mix.

The EP is only available as individual tracks on their Bandcamp. I have embedded them all in correct order for your listening pleasure.
