Maximum Rocknroll #393 review:
Mutant Scum - Field Recordings

Slime themed mid-tempo metal punk dirges. Snarling vocals and meaty guitars, they just can’t seem to settle on an approach. The intro is a churning proto-crust burner, but the style meanders towards ’90s East Bay hardcore and then settle into sludge/stoner dirge. All of these things are good, mind you, so this is more of an observation than a complaint. Presentation and theme are excellent, with an informational leaflet, stickers… and a packet of scum. Actual scum. It’s green.


Mutant Scum – Field Recordings

These creatures were somehow formed underground out of the decades of industrial waste festering in Brooklyn's Newtown Creek. These however are our best educated guesses and their true origins remain unknown. Research Package includes cassette of field recordings and specimen for home analysis.
