Frozen Screams Imprint unveils the destructive debut full-length from SCREWED out of Portland, Oregon. With a fresh + unique take on the classic HM-2 sound as its foundation, the album layers multiple influences from a complex palette of death metal, hardcore, d-beat, raw punk, powerviolence + harsh noise, striking angst-ridden lyrics against a wall of uncomfortable sound to paint a grim portrait of a world gone mad — and a society on the brink of collapse — caving into a constant cycle of fear, intimidation + manipulation.
In these dark + uncertain times, SCREWED shines a light on the subconscious pain + misery inflicted on us unwillingly by the powers that be — and challenges us to think before blindly falling in line. However, this record does not aim to “take sides” — rather, to simply point out the hypocrisy + dangerous agendas that come from all sides of life + politics.
