Scrog - _Discography_
(New Granada, 2003)
by: Adrian Magers (6 out of 10)
When a band's bio claims that their music is "one part brutal punch to the face, two parts Joy Division, and three parts Melvins", one's interest is genuinely piqued. Thus is the recipe of Scrog, a disbanded Floridian act that predated emocore's eventual trendiness and has now been subject to a compiling of all their material onto one CD, courtesy of Granada Records. Since many of the tracks were only originally released on 7", this should come as a nice 78 minute surprise to fans, and a much easier to collect version of the band's entire catalogue. As stated before, this is somewhat akin to emocore, but still maintains a rough edge to it (unlike most of the sub-genre's current bands) that lives up to both the metal and hardcore influences they've drawn into their formula. Occasionally some of the vocals can become whiny, but for the most part this act displays more guts than any emo, screamo, whatever act that's around these days.
