It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty-five years since “Scum” was released. I’m sure you remember this album well, what with classics such as “You Suffer”. Everyone’s heard of “Scum” but not all have heard “Scum”, Napalm Death have changed a lot since the album was released and perhaps not surprisingly, there isn’t a lot of “Scum” left in Napalm.
To celebrate 25 years since the release of the most influential grindcore album ever made, “Scum” has been remastered especially for this release from the original tapes with Full Dynamic Range (FDR), allowing the music’s nuances to shine through and giving the whole album a more ferocious and dynamic sound than ever before, and enabling the listener to immerse in the full audio chaos like never before.
Original NAPALM DEATH guitarist and founding member MICK HARRIS states: “It sounds wicked – that record still holds up today and I’m proud I was part of it.”
The re-issue will be released both on a limited edition digipak-CD as well as the four different vinyl versions you can view above, so if you are feeling nostalgic and want to relive the many “20 seconds or less” madness’ “Scum” is infamous for now is the chance! Do it here or here!
