If there’s one thing the last twelve months or so have taught people it’s how to adapt, and fans of live music have been no exception. With no shows to attend, the number of people paying to watch their favourite bands – or just any band – performing special quarantine sets has been steadily on the rise.
Last Friday (1/29/21) I got to check out the live stream from Housecore bands Scour and Shock Narcotic. Both of these groups are “supergroups” but I’m not going to get into that right now.

Death grind supergroup SCOUR featuring Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Superjoint etc.), John Jarvis (Agoraphobic Nosebleed), Derek Engemann (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, ex-Cattle Decapitation), Mark Kloeppel (Misery Index), and Adam Jarvis (Pig Destroyer, Misery Index) will finally release their long-anticipated Black EP, the third in a three-part series, next year via Housecore Records. The band has a history of covers at their shows and they are releasing a special Black Friday teaser their cover of Bathory classic, “Massacre.” Revolver is hosting an exclusive fan-filmed video clip of the track, captured at various shows through the years.Continue reading
