No, eventhough the association is there, Italian Scum have nothing to do with Napalm Death.
Scum play thrash metal with a slightly modern edge and
judging by the images on the cover and the promo sheet, they're damn proud of
it, too. There are touches of Sepultura and Pantera and a definite want to add some complexity
to the music, which is of course fine.
Each and every song holds one or two cool or good ideas, but on the whole,
exactly the songs have a hard time keeping me focused. Along with that, the
production and mix of the 'Painful Illusion' lacks quality and never reaches
above demo level.
Good, but not quite good enough.
