It may have been some time coming but Scamp the intense Danish technical metal group have recorded the follow up to 2008's Mirror Faced Mentality, Scamp's first album which was awarded debut metal album of the year at the Danish Metal Music Awards.
Scamp's new release The Deadcalm features a different lead vocalist that is Michael Bogballe (ex. Mnemic) who provides the vocal wrath to complement Scamp's hard hitting barrage. Scamp have a range of influences being fans of such groups as Periphery, Bulb, tesseract, Mnemic, Meshuggah and Refused.
Scamp's not your laid back standard patterns kind of metal band they are up for a challenge as they go about flexing their musical muscle. Unleashing some truly heavy music from the get go and there is little room for breathers, as this album is a predominately unrelenting collection of songs. As "The Broken 20/20" starts to get underway and the music builds your anticipation of what is to come builds due to the inviting sounds. And what you get here and elsewhere is not only that opportunity to indulge with some seriously potent music, as Scamp is also a group that likes to groove it up in a technical kind of way with ample precision. Which certainly isn't a bad thing and neither is their second album The Deadcalm.
