SCUM - Equal Parts Amen, Emperor & Turbonegro

When I picked up this side project cd a few years back I had an inkling of how good it might be and then on first listen I was absolutely blown away. With equal parts Amen, Zyklon & Turbonegro expectations were high and knowing that the collective could either go Black Metal with its infamous drummer Faust and shredders Samoth and Cosmocrator or would they go the punk route with Casey Chaos and Happy Tom in the ranks, but damn if they didn't straddle the fine line and make something completely their own. If you don't already have this album, what the hell are you waiting for? This is one of those side projects which needs to have the next chapter come to life.
