Trench – Scarification

I almost didn’t rip this CD and post is simply because if you go into basically ANY Cash Converters in Perth you can buy a copy for a buck.

This is no mean feat seeing this record came out sometime around 1995.

The band flooded, and I mean FLOODED Cashies with their debut and perhaps only album with hundreds of copies over the years.

At one point there must have been 30 of them on the racks in the Osborne Park cashies and every other secondhand store within a 20km radius had a few as well. I went into the Mandurah store over xmas this year and they had 2 copies.

That aside this is a fairly decent 90s metal record, much in the vein of the first Allegiance album I guess. I never saw them play live that I recall but they shout the usual 90’s

metal bands from Perth in the liner notes such as SFD, Nebula, Downer, Grimoire, Choke etc.

 

Lead guitarist ‘Ershon’ was a year above me in high school and as far as I remember was about the most metal dude I’d ever seen by the time he was 15. Strangely this year at Churchlands High was also shared by Karl Smith from Thermos Cardy/Sodastream. You couldn’t get further apart musically if you tried.

 

Anyway here is the record ‘Scarification’. Enjoy.
