Scum are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Humana" which was released by Sliptrick Records.
An atmospheric soundscape intro starts off the album along with a small amount of spoken word samples before going into more of a heavier direction which also uses death metal growls while the riffing also mixes in elements of djent and modern thrash along with a decent amount of melody.
Touches of groove metal are also mixed in the vocals while the guitar leads are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion along with spoken word samples also being used briefly and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the main focus being more on a mid tempo style and on the last track the vocals get semi melodic.
Scum plays a musical style that takes death metal and mixes it with a modern form of thrash metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Hatred, Depression and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion Scum are a very great sounding mixture of death and modern thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Under The Worm" "Collapsed" and "Humana". 8 out of 10.
