“Bearing a distinct influence of Swedish noise legends like Sanctum and Mental Destruction, Scrap/Grinder's first collaboration fuses post industrial percussion with generative beats, glitches, and abrasive, moody technoid atmospheres.
Originally recorded in 2005 and completed in 2012, Ganum includes four powerful tracks that push the envelope of rhythmic electronic noise. Featuring a guest vocal appearance by Håkan Paulsson (of The November Commandment, Counterblast, Sanctum and Azure Skies), Scrap/Grinder presents a compelling debut that leaves the listener wanting for much more.
Those familiar with the artists may be able to pick up on the mixture of Aphorism's digital complexities with Millipede's deep percussive sensibilities, resulting in an aggressive burst of high tech and low tech distorted rhythms, drones, and melodies. Scrap/Grinder is truly a unique listening experience, not to be missed.:
