Raise the Death's Head: EP Vinyl
Relapse Records: 2021
Scarecrow was formed in the year 2006 and comes from San Francisco, California, USA and this is the second output after a split with Arizona based female fronted Death Metallers ‘Landmine Marathon’. A new three track vinyl EP is here. The music can be described as old school Thrash Metal with a Crossover touch. Think about Testament and Metallica are going Hardcore Punk. All with a wall of sound, tight instrumentation, heavy bass by Death Angel bassist ‘Damien Sisson’, driving riffs, razorwire guitarsolos by the guys ‘Bud Burke and Matt Harvey’. Death Angel drummer (Will Carrol) tops it off with some kick ass drums, all with some fantastic double bass. Also the vocal style by singer-guitarist (Matt Harvey, see also Dekapitator, Exhumed, Gruesome and more) suits perfectly to their music. It reminds me in general to a mixture between Chuck Billy from Testament and James Hetfield from Metallica, so Bay Area Thrash Metal all the way!! All three songs are catchy as fuck. As well the recording sound is old school but super fresh. Awesome release, by a great new super tight all-star band from the good old Bay!
