Epic Guitars & Crashing Drums

Posted on February 12, 2008

A cult classic…. Scarlet’s latest release is indeed. Check out the below review from Metal Hammer magazine, posted in their press section! Metal Hammer Cult Classic A cult classic? Pretty damn close! Naming your new album ‘Cult Classic’ is either a very brave or a very stupid thing to do when your music sits somewhere between the Black Flagand Dillinger Escape Plan. On first listen you’d be forgiven for dismissing Scarlet as bandwaggoneers, yet on repeated spins of ‘Cult Classic’ it becomes evident that what we are dealing with here is much more than a rag tag bunch of musical pilferers, as they take the more interesting elements of the afore mentioned influences and stamp their own fresh, yet eerie perspective on proceedings. You can just envisage this material slaying in the live arena, it’s all about epic guitars and crashing drums! But at the end of the day hailing this as just a ‘cult classic’ would be an unfair and embarrassing proclamtion to make, however ‘Cult Classic’ comes pretty damn close! Brian Magill 8/10
