16 blasts that betray the expected beauty you normally might get from bands from Finland. There’s something quite ugly, quite raw and quite horrible about Scarecrow’s metal/punk sound. Especially as it does sit in the high tempo side of punk rock, with scathing bouts of heavy metal riffs while having a horror flavour.

Call it what you want, everyone can agree that it’s a noisy record regardless. You can feel the energy, smell the sweat and taste the stale beer. It’s music for the grotty club basement or sawdust covered dive bar. Uncomplicated and to the point; track after track of dirty noise that makes you want to get up and move.

Highlights include the beastly Mark of the Werewolf, the infectious Witchfuck, the heavy metal head-banger that is Skull of Antichrist, the synthy horror of Nothing in the Mirror and hyperactive evil What’s the Devil to Do.
