“Crouch” is the latest single from California death metal/hardcore quartet SCALP, the song now streaming as the band’s debut LP, Domestic Extremity, is prepared for release this Friday through Creator-Destructor Records.
SCALP is Southern California’s most violent and unpredictable new outfit, bred on a wide range of influences from across and beyond the realms of extreme music. Facets of classic and technical death metal, West Coast crust, and modern hardcore unite in an explosive attack in the vein of Nails, Dead In The Dirt, Dystopia, Homewrecker, and Terminal Nation. With their demo on the shelf for one year, SCALP now unloads their brutalizing debut full-length, Domestic Extremity, unloading ten tracks as devastating as they are lyrically pressing in the current state of the country.
Engineered and mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit (Nails, Xibalba, Twitching Tongues) in August of 2020, Domestic Extremity was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Obituary, Dropdead). The record features additional vocals on “Scalp” by Thqms of No Time Records, additional samples by Taylor Young on “Depleted Mass,” and spoken elements in “Bastard Land” by Nikko Jenkins, and is completed with cover Art by Kris Garcia, Julietta Weinstein, Jack Baker, Cole Sattler, and Jessica Renich.
Domestic Extremity will see release this Friday, November 13th via all digital providers and on two limited vinyl variants in runs of 125 each. Find preorders at Bandcamp and the Creator-Destructor webshop.
