Scathing has emerged as one of the strongest current practitioners of harsh noise. Dynamic and violent, this walks the razors edge between thuggish Americanoise and hyperspeed Japanese thrash. Recent outings for the likes of Oxen, Dead Gods, and Dada Drumming have honed Scathing’s assault into an unstoppable force, and “Pale Faced Feeders” is a statement of dominance. This is head-banging noise.
