No Echo is hosting the exclusive premiere of “Depleted Mass,” the new single from SoCal-based death metal/hardcore quartet SCALP. The track precedes the band’s brutalizing debut LP, Domestic Extremity, nearing November release through Creator-Destructor Records.
SCALP is Southern California’s most violent and unpredictable new outfit, bred on a wide range of influences from across and beyond the realms of extreme music. Facets of classic and technical death metal, West Coast crust, and modern hardcore unite in an explosive attack in the vein of Nails, Dead In The Dirt, Dystopia, Homewrecker, and Terminal Nation.
With their demo on the shelf for one year, SCALP is now prepared to unleash their caustic debut full-length, Domestic Extremity, unloading ten tracks as devastating as they are lyrically pressing in the current state of the country. Engineered and mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit (Nails, Xibalba, Twitching Tongues) in August of 2020, Domestic Extremity was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Obituary, Dropdead). The record features additional vocals on “Scalp” by Thqms of No Time Records, additional samples by Taylor Young on “Depleted Mass,” and spoken elements in “Bastard Land” by Nikko Jenkins, and is completed with cover Art by Kris Garcia, Julietta Weinstein, Jack Baker, Cole Sattler, and Jessica Renich.
Within their interview with SCALP, No Echo writes in part, “The Southern California outfit absolutely slays, spewing forth elements of power violence, death metal, hardcore, and sludge in a truly terrifying way.”
