Scald - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Scald was hatched into existence in the year of your lord 1993, from the festering ashes of, initially and down through the descending, turbulent years, various grind-core punk/crust-metal units (including T.V.P. and Bleeding Rectum), with the primary personnel read-out of, Pete Dempsey (G/V), Big Balls (B) and Paul (Paulrus) McCarroll (D), which eventually evolved, due to a doom-laden fluxation of ongoing negative and experimental in-house factors into the present day triumvirate of P.D. (B/V), Mick Tierney (G) and P (P) McC (D). From the early black-noise of their primitive first-born, crust-metal rumblings (=Force The Farce Compilation Single '93 + Rancid Fuckhole Demo '94), onto a sharper, more metallic, doom-punk mesh of cold, piercing thrashery (=Born With Teeth Demo '97), occasionally befriended by semi-discontinual, sporadic live outings, down through the lurching, despairing, wasteland crawl, precluding base animal instinctive haste, of their sludge-grinding and frenetic, tortuous and weightier c..Nematoid Demos '99 / '00), then onto the slowly squirming emergence of a seemingly hopeless journey into an epic, sonic barrage of pounding, twisted-gear changing, organic filth-riddled density and bastardised, dissonant prog-grind leanings (=Headworm Album '03), right up to their Code666 (Italy) licensed, jazz-grind, doom-funk, classical-thrash, prog-instrumental odyssey (=Vermiculatus Album '06) and Midhir (Ireland) Licensed, horned salute and blackened nod to their pre-Scaldic grindcore roots (=Fluke EP '07), Scald have summoned a predominantly positive response to their negatively charged yet contradictorily cathartic and grimly greying, venomous outbursts, from the verminous global network of extreme-musical, underground entities and remain an uncompromisingly grating, gratifyingly displeasing, head-melting oddity of Ireland's idiosyncratic D.I.Y zone.
