Band History - Scald (Online Apr. 2004)

Scald

SCALD was hatched into existence in the year of your lord 1993, from the festering ashes of, initially and down through the descending, turbulent years, various Grindcore Punk/Crust Metal units (including T.V.P. and BLEEDING RECTUM), with the primary personnel read-out of, Pete Dempsey (G/V), Big Balls (B) and Paul (Paulrus) McCarroll (D), which eventually evolved, due to a doom-laden fluxation of ongoing negative and experimental in-house factors into the present day triumvirate of P.D. (B/V), Mick Tierney (G) and P (P) McC (D).

 

From the early black-noise of their primitive first-born, Crust Metal rumblings (=”Rancid Fuckhole” Demo ’94), onto a sharper, more metallic, Doom Punk mesh of cold, piercing thrashery (=”Born With Teeth” Demo ’97), occasionally befriended by semi-discontinual, sporadic live outings, down through the lurching, despairing, wasteland crawl, precluding base animal instinctive haste, of their sludge-grinding and frenetic, tortuous and weightier convolutions (=”Nematoid” Demos ’99 / ‘00), then onto the recently, painfully discharged, slowly squirming emergence of today’s seemingly hopeless journey into an epic, sonic barrage of pounding, twisted-gear changing, organic filth-riddled density and bastardised dissonant Prog Grind leanings (=”Headworm” Album ’03), SCALD have summoned a predominantly positive response to their negatively charged yet contradictorily cathartic and grimly greying, venomous outbursts, from the blackened global network of extreme-musical, underground entities and remain an uncompromisingly grating, gratifyingly displeasing, head-melting oddity of Irelands idiosyncratic D.I.Y zone.
