Scream At The Sky - Self Titled E.P. Reviewed By Full Metal Mayhem! Check it out here at this link: https://lorenzvangore.wixsite.com/fullmetalmayhem/post/scream-at-the-sky-mit-selt-titled-e-p
Release date: November 11, 2020
Other releases of the band: As far as I know nothing else.How did I get to know the band: Today already the second band on Metal Devastation Radio. You have to be careful with industrial metal. You either get crap or something really cool. How do I find the disc: Today I have really strange music.
Let's see if it's any good:
SCREAM AT THE SKY starts with clinking and plucked guitars, plus a piano, but when the vocals start it sounds like Core at first. Actually not a bad song, only the singing style bothers me a bit. On the one hand the core screams, to which I'm allergic, and on the other hand the normal voice, which I really like. Otherwise rather slowly but also complaining and angry.
FAILURES starts with a chorus and strange synth noises before a true primal scream indicates that it is about to start. Here, too, they play with different voices, but also Linkin Park-esque rap passages, which unfortunately get me out of here as well. It's 15 years too late for that.
WORLD OF HATE sounds interesting. A synth accompanies the singer, who is probably based on Manson, before angry screams, which almost growl, mix in before the voice becomes normal. So far my favorite on the EP.
MY LIFE (FEAT LAURIE NORMANDIN ERA 9) opens with a quiet guitar before someone turns off the amplifier. We also hear the guest singer who does her job well, but for me the song is too harmless. The duet in the chorus sounds great, but the rest around it doesn't give me anything.
SAVE YOURSELF is really industrial metal. The synth can always be heard here, the singing here in two parts, sometimes normal, sometimes guttural. Doesn't sound bad, but it won't be anything I listen to regularly. So on to the last track.
HEAR ME OUT ends the album with what could be a sample from a pop song, recorded from the radio. The singer screams his heart out while the melody of the intro is held by the synth. It gets even quieter later on, only to turn into a rap part. I'm out.
Conclusion: That was probably nothing. The times for this Music are rum and that is actually a good thing. If you still got stuck on it, you are welcome to listen to it. I don't have to have that anymore. I'm clearly grown up there.

Industrial/Metal Band SCREAM AT THE SKY Addresses Drug Addiction With New Video, "Save Yourself"
Video Direction: Erik Gustafson (Adoration Destroyed/Grendel/Erik Gustafson Photography) & Brian Carter
"The video is about addictions and breaking the common plague that infects millions of people every day. I wrote the song about a real life experience that I encountered when one of my closest friends called me and said they have a problem and didn't know how to save themselves.
The video basically symbolizes a dialog between your drug addiction and your soul. It's your drug addiction saying "you'll never be saved." Then your soul is fighting back, saying "You can change this and you are worth saving."
I actually wasn't even going to record this song on our first EP. I wrote the song and finished it in the studio when I asked my producer James Gelber (HEMLOCK) at the last minute if we could add this song. Being the bad ass that he is, he helped me bring this song to life making it one of my favorite songs to play live."
- Brian Carter (SCREAM AT THE SKY)
