EP Review: Scar My Eyes – This Machine
Hertfordshire’s Scar My Eyes could rapidly become the ‘fans choice’ of underground hardcore, gathering more and more grass roots support, and being voted onto the Hellfire Festival bill earlier this year via a Scuzz poll. Not bad for a band from the self-proclaimed ‘depths of nowhere’.
This EP then easily does them justice – opening with a few minutes of dark swirly intro, title track This Machine… kicks in like a bulldozer of thrash, with a heavy melodic chorus. Meanwhile, slower tracks like Disposition are definite mosh moments, brutal and just the right speed to slam to.
This isn’t usual fare for Pure Rawk, but if you like your UK hardcore, then this is most definitely for you.
