SCOURGED FLESH - RELEASED FROM DAMNATION (CD, 2006, Rowe)

COMPACT DISC

Scourged Flesh is a power trio from Australia who play old school death/thrash metal. Their debut album, "Released from Damnation" has an independent, underground production. Those who love metal for metal should find something to like here. There is plenty to like here. Scourged Flesh have a huge (early) Mortification influence, from the vocals, to the openly Christian lyrics, to the music, to the album cover art. The cover art is by Troy Dunmire, who has done work for Mortification, among others. Musically, these guys stick to a lot of mid-paced songs, with heavy, downtuned, guitars. What we like is that they try to variate the tunes and make them interesting with lots of time changes, harmonies and guitar solos. At times it's also really crunchy. Our favorite track is 'Spiritual Awakenin'. More tracks in the caliber of this and next release can be a real shredder! Other favorites are 'Resurrection Day' and 'Prince of Peace'. While not an album that strikes us to the floor it's a solid debut album from a promising band. With some more catchy harmonies added to their brutal sound and some more practice they can go far.
