Album Review: Scraper - Misery

"Gleefully nasty stuff."

The Slovenly juggernaut continues to roll, with the release of San Fran creeps Scraper's second LP Misery.

Bulling their way through the speakers like a nihilistic ooze, the 11 tracks are exercises in metal-scraping punk pall, from the crushing negativity employed in the title track, delivered with a dead-eyed anarchism, to spitting on the plague that is the human race on Rats In The House, Rodent and Clones. Things close on a drag-the-lake chug on Nine Minutes In Hell, a narcoleptic Pop 1280 covering Minor Threat. Gleefully nasty stuff.
