SCARD: Portland Dark Ambient/Industrial Noise Project To Release Harrowing Rusted Lock Full Length This November Via Scry Recordings; New Track Streaming + Preorders Available

Portland-based dark ambient/industrial noise project  SCARD  will release its  Rusted Lock  full length November 6th via Scry Recordings.

 


SCARD  - led by one J. Huston-- began in 2001 in Seattle, moving to Portland a year later. Drawing from dark ambient, power electronics, death industrial, and black noise,  SCARD  combines their personal origins in the forested regions of Oregon with eventual scum of city life to create a harsh, layered, and multi-faceted sound.In addition to his solo endeavor, Huston is the guitarist, vocalist, and producer of the atmospheric black metal band Winter In The Blood and also appears on the avant-garde black metal ensemble L'Acephale's  Stahlhartes Gehäuse  and self-titled full-lengths (2009 and 2019 respectively).

 


Comments Huston of his upcoming offering, " Rusted Lock  contains the most seething, and incisive work since  SCARD 's inception. The project is by nature experimental and includes exploratory sounds and songs but a consistent thread of death/industrial doom and black metal virulence remains consistent throughout. This latest offering was an absolutely crucial album after a very long break from any activity. Near the end of the break, I underwent a total mental reconfiguration as well as a vast expansion of studio gear. The album evolved naturally throughout the process, utilizing a dominating force of will during a period of molting. It draws upon concepts surrounding personal strength, confrontation, obsession, and the many forms of poison, violently gripping, and tearing at its prey until cold, barren detritus is rejected and abandoned."
