quartet Scars are an experienced lot, having started out as early as

it is a pleasure to listen to something as uncompromisingly thrashy and
old school. The concept of the six track E.P. is Dante’s tales of
“Hell” which, I suppose, is as cliché as it gets and therefore
Vocalist Regis’ voice is an acquired taste as he has a strained style, but he fits the old school feel quite well.

Recommended: “Nether Hell” (heavy as f*ck riffing!) and “Hidden Roots of Evil” (double bass drum par excellence).
