To celebrate the Halloween release of their new 5 song EP "Revenger", aggressive punk/rock/metal band Mongrel is offering a free download of "Scum" the lead off track from the new release at band's site with the entire EP along with the artwork available for a limited time as a "name your price" digital download. All 5 songs from the EP are also available on the bandcamp site for streaming play.
"'Scum' is based on a true story unfortunately, and is about not feeling that justice has been done, so the victim turns vigilante...essentially the ultimate revenge" stated Mongrel guitarist Adam Savage, "it just seemed like the perfect song to start off the new EP with."
Savage states, "the EP is a great way to introduce the steps forward we've taken with the new recordings that we've been working on this year, and gives a taste of what's to come on the new full length album "This Means War" which will be out in early 2010." Savage also makes clear that all of the songs on "Revenge" are exclusive to this EP and will not be on the upcoming full length cd, stating, "We wanted to keep the EP as something special for the fans and not make them re-buy the same songs when the new album comes out."
"Revenge" was recorded by Tim Koukos (Nuclear Assault, Meliah Rage), and mixed by Jeff Wallace (Biohazard, Pro-Pain, End of an Era) and features the following songs: Scum, Catharsis, Beyond Repair, Butterknife Suicide, and Point a Finger (featuring Tylor Monroe of Scarecrow Hill).
