Scalping have quickly established themselves amongst the UK’s most sensational acts, drip-feeding explosive shots of techno, punk and hardcore into the world and igniting venues and festivals across UK and Europe with a precise, unrelenting energy. The Flood EP is a major milestone for the band and is the first proper holistic realisation of Scalping’s stylistic breadth and mastery of a unique boundary-blurring approach, along with a developed sense of the total control exerted over their music at all times. Flood is undoubtedly the sound of a band seizing and maximising a singular vision.

‘Monolithium’ brings a pulverising gyrating intensity that unstoppably grinds through the gears to a riotous peak. The pneumatic crushing weight of ‘The Perimeter’ is constantly cranked up, increasing in volume, depth and power eventually forcing out a trance-metal hybrid gemstone, once again displaying Scalping’s remarkable ability to forge anything they choose to from whatever they feel like.

‘Cloudburst’s throbbing acid synth line provides a more straightforward dancefloor orientated sound whilst still maintaining dizzying energy and ruthless propulsion. ‘Empty Cascade’ is an epic mission statement, a perfect combination of rave fundamentals and straight up system blowing sludge that could legitimately only be pulled off by Scalping.
