Scumworm are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of grindcore, death and sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 ep.
Clean yet distorted playing starts off the ep along with a brief use of stringed instruments and melodic chants before going into a very fast grindcore direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are a mixture of high pitched screams and death metal growls.
All of the tracks are very short in length while some of the guitar leads also add in a touch of stoner rock along with the slower sections of the songs being very heavily influenced by sludge metal as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the music also brings in a great amount of crust elements, a small amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing.
Scumworm plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in grindcore while also mixing in elements of crust, death and sludge metal, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover social issues, politics and violence themes.
In my opinion Scumworm are a very great sounding mixture of grindcore, sludge and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dios Oculto" and "Escupiendo Carne". 8 out of 10.
