Album Review

No one could have been adequately prepared for the sort of seismic jolt set off by Sin Disease upon its release. Merciless, brutal, neurotic, Tourettic, and consistently stunning, Scaterd Few's debut didn't push the boundaries of rock — it annihilated them. Allan Aguirre's vocal delivery was chilling: a wild, unconstrained howl that went from gothic moan to banshee yelp within the space of a single lyric. He sings like a man on fire, wild-eyed and crazy, yelping out each dire prophecy as if every word might be his last. The band's music is equally urgent. Scaterd Few summoned a mad-scientist hybrid of dub, reggae, post-punk, and heavy metal that outshone even visionary avatars like the Pop Group. "While Reprobate" is a searing blast of white noise, Omar Domkus' elastic bass bounding and snapping over Sam West's machine-gun percussion as Aguirre (operating under the infamous pseudonym Ramald Domkus) shrieks lyrics like "Kiss me my sin disease contaminates!/Benevolent apathy regurgitate!" The group's masterpiece, "Later (L.A. 1989)," is bleak and sinister, bassline creepy and shivery as spider's legs with Aguirre again playing prophet of doom. It's a role he fills well — the bulk of the record is given over to horrific apocalyptic visions of a future where violence and corruption has turned the human race into rotting, staggering zombies. It's no great mystery why such a bleak record inspired mass rejection and rancor, and it was even less surprising when the band revealed that the record's grotesqueries were conceived and recorded under the heavy hand of marijuana. Sin Disease builds to a phenomenally unsettling conclusion: after 15-and-a-half-minute bursts, listeners are treated to the seven-minute "Kill the Sarx II (Apocalypse)," a grim sound collage that begins as unhinged lounge music and very quickly twists into terrifying horror movie shrieks and moans, the product of some unhinged Bunuel fever dream. Despite its initial rejection, Sin Disease was considered a landmark alongside L.S.U.'s Shaded Pain and Undercover's Branded, and Aguirre revived the group in 1994 (drug-free this time) for the more commercial Jawboneofanass. ~ J.

Scaterd Few - Sin Disease: Opus Zine Review

Seamlessly melding punk, speed metal, funk, reggae, and goth into a deliriously intense sound all their own, Scaterd Few is like a shot of adrenaline right to the heart. But the real treat is Allan Aguirre (fka Ramald Domkus) and his Perry Farrel/Andrew Eldritch vocals. Wailing like a banshee, or stooping to a low growl, his vocal style is definitely unique and bizarre.

Whether proudly wailing “I’d rather die than blame it on my God,” decrying racial and gang tension (“Unified we might persuade our local terrorist blackened regime/Heed the cry of a scaterd few/Like the brothers on the Berlin wall/These walls need knocking too”), or voicing the energy of youth everywhere (“Take heed to my reproof/Don’t reject me cause I’m young/We’re here for Yawheh’s glory and to magnify His son”), rarely has any band released anything this deep and provoking in an album that just clocks under 40 minutes.

All in all, a real gem that hasn’t lost it’s energy after two decades, and whose impact will probably never fully be known.

Fantastic

One of my all-time favorite albums.

MASTERPIECE

This album is one of my all time favorites. I can not say enough good things about this album. This album sounds as good if not better now when it was released in 1990. It rocked my world. I am metal guy and I had never heard anything like it before and nothing like it since. Scaterd Few is one of those bands I listen to and it dose not sound dated at all. This cd totaly rocks my world still and my faith is strenghten when I listened to it in a good way by the way!!! This is CD is a MASTERPIECE. BUY IT.
