They were supposed to release another soundtrack for a comic called Pure but this release got postponed until it didn’t get released at all. This LP offer the songs of the Scum MCS as well as 5 new tracks. It’s heavy, mean, brutal and 100% metal and the two singers still grunt and scream like madmen.

THOU ornament their noisy SABBATH worship with moments of quietness and melancholy that calms down the listener before dragging him down into the dark cellars of the mighty e-minor chord cathedral.

>>> ZEROID – “2004″ LP (per koro) 9 EUR
8 depressive, dark and brutal tracks of their own! this record was produced by dirk kusche (kuschelrock fame). all over the record ZEROID created a dark and devastating mood with a crushing wall of sound as well as short melodic pieces that are over and over again interrupted by their shattering darkness of cutting guitar riffs and punishing drums and stomping bass lines. ZEROID could be called the pissed version of NEUROSIS, URANUS or the darker version of ACME.
