Black metal screams, heavy riffs and melodic guitar leads start off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats along with some death metal growls also being utilized at times as well as the music also mixing in a great amount of crust elements.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of grindcore influences can be heard while the tremolo picking also gives the songs a more raw feeling along with some of the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and the music also mixes in elements of punk, back up shouts and shouting style vocals can also be heard briefly and a couple of tracks also brings in a small amount of spoken word samples and synths.
Scumpulse plays a musical style that takes a very raw and melodic form of black metal and mixes it with crust punk and grindcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover alcoholism, addiction and depression themes.
In my opinion Scumpulse are a very great sounding raw and melodic mixture of black metal, crust punk and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rotten" "King Of Dogshit" and "Sand And Dust". 8 out of 10.
