CLAYMORDS: "Scum Of The Earth"
Label: WormHoleDeath 2013
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
What do we dislike? That's right... Norwegian church burning Black Metal of the early nineties. And I believe I speak for the entire team at RockUnited for that matter. It's really not our type of music and I use the term 'music' very loosly here. It's like if you're listening to the car crash between the local milkman and dito pig farmer. The horror, the horror. The terror, the terror. Reading the press-release, singer and I use the term 'singer' loosly here, Nils Ivar Martila founded the band in Bergen (Norway) in the early nineties. Oh crap. Bergen, the home of the metal insane. Claymords are not just black metal of the old though as they mix various other styles such as thrash and groovy extreme metal. Midly entertaining in a morbid sort of way and a track like, "King of All, King Of Death", is more towards the total annihilation of Slayer anyhow, and probably the direction to aim for in the future. If you ever had any doubt about where Norwegains go after dark, have a listen to this and be afraid, be very afraid.
