Following an exciting end to 2020, which saw them sign to Houndstooth, release a blistering single ‘Deadlock’ and get named in the NME 100 for 2021, SCALPING prepare their first full body of work, ‘Flood’.
SCALPING have quickly established themselves amongst the UK’s most sensational acts, drip-feeding explosive shots of techno, punk and hardcore into the world and igniting venues and festivals across UK and Europe with a precise, unrelenting energy. The ‘Flood’ EP is a major milestone for the band and is the first proper holistic realisation of SCALPING’s stylistic breadth and mastery of a unique boundary-blurring approach, along with a developed sense of the total control exerted over their music at all times. ‘Flood’ is undoubtedly the sound of a band seizing and maximising a singular vision.
‘Monolithium’ brings a pulverising gyrating intensity that unstoppably grinds through the gears to a riotous peak. The pneumatic crushing weight of ‘The Perimeter’ is constantly cranked up, increasing in volume, depth and power eventually forcing out a trance-metal hybrid gemstone, once again displaying SCALPING’s remarkable ability to forge anything they choose to from whatever they feel like.
‘Cloudburst’s throbbing acid synth line provides a more straightforward dancefloor orientated sound whilst still maintaining dizzying energy and ruthless propulsion. ‘Empty Cascade’ is an epic mission statement, a perfect combination of rave fundamentals and straight up system blowing sludge that could legitimately only be pulled off by SCALPING.
