Atrament takes the best from two realms within the metal inferno – Death Metal and Black Metal. Two subgenres that do not shy away from gory imagery and satanic lyrics. As a first time listener of Atrament, I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with this album. Only because listening to the album never felt like a chore, nor did it drag on too long. With 10 tracks all ranging close to 3 minutes each. Time really flies by as you listen to this album.
Look, Scum Sect is the perfect album for any metalhead that loves heavy riffs, blast beats, death growls, and Quentin Tarantino esque lyrics. These dudes love their F-bombs! Scum Sect scores very high for the subgenre that it lies in. As an overall metal album, it’s like Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. They’re fine just sprinkle some sugar on them and voila! You have Frosted Flakes. Not bad nor good.
In my opinion, this may be a band that sounds tremendously better live. Offering great headbanging material for the night. Scum Sect gets three out of five zombie heads.
