Born in 1998, Scum moved from small time garage metal band to national act, with its own
signature sound, an incendiary blend of Bay Area Old School metal and modern soundscapes,
all embedded in a nightmare of claustrophobia! Such is the concept behind their up-n-coming
album ‘Humana’ where no-nonsense lyrics are vomited over a carpet of melting thrash/death metal.
Dealing with different issues, the album “Humana” is an attempt to elaborate about human nature,
what humanity means, and what role could have mankind in modern society
(The intro is a Gustav Jung’s speech about human as the origin of all evil.)
Humana was recorded, mixed and produced by Stefano “Saul” Morabito at “16th Cellar Studio”
(Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour of Penance, Hideous Divinity, Adimiron and many more…) in Rome,
while the artwork, by Carlo Settembrini (also vocalist of Scum) and due to be revealed soon
is an allusion to the human tendency to be driven by the trends, ignoring all the limitless
potential of the individual , in favour of something bigger than the individual itself.
Scum has shreeded stages for 18 years along with bands such as Node, Eyeconoclast, Subliminal
Crusher, Hour of Penance and more as well as being officially endorsed by Schecter Guitar Research.
