The Texas supergroup Scattered Storm released their debut EP “Oblivion” earlier this July. To complement that release, they have a new lyric video for the track “Under The Fire”.
The politically-charged single lyrically touches upon a recent shooting by a racist that happened in the band’s hometown of El Paso. They share more details about the musical work on the track…
“Musically, it began with Jay using an eight-string to create syncopated riffs that melted into a steady groove of legato slides on the guitar. Then transitioning to machine riffs to Mediterranean landscapes in the middle with climaxing vocals making a Segway to the ethereal brutal ending.”
The band expects a good reception to this initial offering, due to the catchy hooks and memorable vocals. The song has enough passages to keep the listener interested, plus the lyrics have some meaty social and fantasy content that pairs up well with the sonic landscape they have created musically.
Scattered Storm (ft. members Pissing Razors) has contrived futuristic heavy music with a lot of ambiences, and while this EP itself is not a concept record, the content combines well with each other. The tracks flow well from one to the other, creating a nice passage to the end.
