WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT SIN DISEASE...

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sin Disease is one of the greatest albums ever to emerge from our scene. Romald Domkus (born Allan Aguirre) and company unleashed a wonderfully chaotic debut album, with production from Terry Taylor (DA/Daniel Amos/Swirling Eddies/Lost Dogs) that set CCM on its head! 
                         --Loyd Harp / Phantom Tollbooth Review

"Merciless, brutal, neurotic, Tourettic, and consistently stunning, Scaterd Few's debut didn't push the boundaries of rock -- it annihilated them. Allan Aguirre's vocal delivery was chilling: a wild, unconstrained howl that went from gothic moan to banshee yelp within the space of a single lyric. He sings like a man on fire, wild-eyed and crazy, yelping out each dire prophecy as if every word might be his last. The band's music is equally urgent. Scaterd Few summoned a mad-scientist hybrid of dub, reggae, post-punk, and heavy metal that outshone even visionary avatars like the Pop Group." -- Allmusic.com 

A real gem that hasn’t lost it’s energy after almost a decade, and whose impact will probably never fully be knownOpuszine Reviews


 

Mixing up a wide range of influences, from Bowie-esque glam to Bad Brains-style reggae, hardcore, and punk, the music on the two recordings contained on these CDs defies trends and often categorization. Sin Disease, the band's debut, relentlessly pounds you over the head with short songs full of snarl and bite...   --Brad Caviness / Music Critic


Raw like the Stooges, but more musically diverse. Amidst Allan Aguirre's howls, you get a fantastic blend of post-punk and reggae, that's sometimes alarming and often unnerving. Think Bad Brains meets Minor Threat. At 16 tracks, Scaterd Few also gave a lot of bang for the buck, albeit with a number of songs in the 1 to 2 min. range. Super record.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Perhaps the single most controversial Christian rock album of all-time! A decade after it's release, HM Magazine called Sin Disease “the record that decisively ended the ’80s” (for Christian music) and also “Christian music’s best punk album ever.” Lyrically, Sin Disease deals with such topics as a friend’s death as a result of gang violence
(“Lights Out”) and cocaine addiction (“Glass God”). The opening track, “Kill the Sarx,” uses violent imagery in its graphic interpretation of a biblical theme (Galatians 5:24; sarx is the New Testament Greek word for “flesh”). The Christian scene had never been exposed to such stark/dark themes in 1990 (a year before Nevermind). The photo of Allan Aguirre for the album cover originally showed him shirtless, sporting “wild” dreadlocks. The locks remained, but the record company actually drew in a
shirt over the singer’s bare chest to minimize perceived offense. Yet, in the midst of all this controversy was one of the most brilliant, creative, transcendent and earth-shaking rock records of all-time. Rarely has one single album had such a profound impact on how we think and see the world.  Yet, Sin Disease did all that, and more.  Produced by Terry Taylor (Daniel Amos) and Allan R. Aguirre, the band ascended far beyond what its raw demos hinted was possible. Notably, the band supported the album with an appearance at Cornerstone Festival, and a tour with mainstream icon, HR of Bad Brains.
Never before reissued on CD, the album has been expertly remastered by J Powell at Steinhaus, features an 8-page booklet in a jewel case, and each CD comes with a Scaterd Few Ltd Collector Card!  Limited to just 1000 units, grab this treasure while you can!

FULL OPUSZINE REVIEW
Christian music has come a long ways, but it wasn’t too long ago that it was as derivative as you could possibly imagine. There was a time when I was incredibly skeptical of Christian music, and refused to use any adjectives like “groundbreaking” when describing it. That’s why Sin Disease, the debut from Sacterd-Few is such an incredible album.

Seamlessly melding punk, speed metal, funk, reggae, and goth into a deliriously intense sound all their own, Scaterd-Few was like a shot of adrenaline right to the heart. But the real treat was Ramald Domkus (now known as Allan Aguirre) and his Perry Farrel/Andrew Eldritch vocals. Wailing like a banshee, or stooping to a low growl, his vocal style is definitely unique and bizarre.

And rarely have I heard lyrics so blunt, yet so poignant and sublime as on this album. Domkus pulled no punches, and wasn’t afraid to confront social issues or his own spirituality with a refreshing openness.

Whether proudly wailing “I’d rather die than blame it on my God,” decrying racial and gang tension (“Unified we might persuade our local terrorist blackened regime/Heed the cry of a scaterd few/Like the brothers on the Berlin wall/These walls need knocking too”), or voicing the energy of youth everywhere (“Take heed to my reproof/Don’t reject me cause I’m young/We’re here for Yawheh’s glory and to magnify His son”), rarely has any band released anything this deep and provoking in an album that just clocks under 40 minutes.

All in all, a real gem that hasn’t lost it’s energy after almost a decade, and whose impact will probably never fully be known.

PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH REVIEW / LOYD HARP
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Sin Disease is one of the greatest albums ever to emerge from our scene. Romald Domkus (born Allan Aguirre) and company unleashed a wonderfully chaotic debut album, with production from Terry Taylor (DA/Daniel Amos/Swirling Eddies/Lost Dogs) that set CCM on its head!

Think I’m overstating things? Not possible. Here’s why: have you ever tried to pigeonhole the album, or this band, into a single genre? Good luck. Take equal parts hardcore punk, reggae, goth, glam rock, and heavy metal, and then top the whole thing off with a weird experimental noise track lasting over 7 minutes long.

But it wasn’t just their originality, nor their penchant for blending genres that solidified their place in Christian music. Their knack for controversy also didn’t hurt. Lyrically the band played with words and images like impressionist painters painted nudes–both scandalous and beautiful at the same time. Those who didn’t listen closely enough would accuse them of swearing, on more than one occasion (“what in hell you gonna do?” or “God damn my enemies–annihilate”). However, on closer listen, one sees that in both cases the lines are meant quite literally, and therefore no cursing is involved.

It’s this attention to detail that set scaterd-few apart from the pack. Follow up a hyper speed thrash attack (in under 2 minutes, no less) with an instrumental prog rock anthem? Sure! Point out the idiocy of drug abuse, and the hypocrisy of how society–and the church–responds to it, all in the same song? Why not! Release an album with impeccable production, appropriate to the genre? Absolutely!

Releasing in 1990, the album would help to usher in a sort of ‘golden era’ of Christian alternative music. An era that included newcomers (Mortal, The Prayer Chain, Saviour Machine, Circle of Dust) and veterans alike (The Choir, Seventy Sevens, Adam Again, The Crucified). While it’s difficult to highlight a track from the album, I’ve always been partial to “U” (actually a re-worked version of “Untitled” from the Out of the Attic sessions released several years prior.
