SKARMENTO: Galician street punk'n'roll on the trail of Honorable Society: BONECRUSHER, CLASH and Tony Montana aka Skarface supported us as sponsors. No 2-tone beat in sight, the name might be confusing, but it's a hard-edged crime & punk sound from Spain's northwest. SKARMENTO, founded in 2000, have confidently learned from the best and forged their bloodthirsty SKARMENTO soundtrack: from BONECRUSHER the viciousness, from CLASH the relaxed feeling, DECIBELIOS and ZAKARRAK as Spanish references and various mobsters as leaden inspiration. The US/UK parallels are particularly present on the English-language tracks, as soon as it turns Spanish, the SKARMENTO note of Galician grimness dominates! An album like a dark bar scenario: tattoos, alcohol, rock'n'roll and the subtle hint of bodily harm as a link. It's this dangerous, explosive mixture of violent situations and relaxed, suspicious moments of calm. A calm in the storm. Combined perfectly and cold-bloodedly. 12 criminally explosive tracks with aggressive vocals, sharp-edged riffs and bulletproof melodies. One-off vinyl edition of 600 copies in jet black. Zenowork/Anfibio/Punk Machine/Rusty Knife/Bandworm 2009)

"They were 4 guys from Donramino. The world will remember them by another name...SKARMENTO!" SKARMENTO, est. in 2000, is inspired by the bullet-proof Good Fellas of Rock'n'Roll: BONECRUSHER, CLASH and Tony Montana. They have the BONECRUSHER rage, that relaxed CLASH feeling, the DECIBELIOS/ZAKARRAK-style as spanish roots and some cruel mobsters as nasty inspiration. The complete album is like a dangerous situation in a smutty bar: filled with heavy tattooed thugs, booze, R'n'R and that lovely smell of a good bare knuckle fights is in the air. So it's a fine mixture of spontaneous violence and dodgy peace, a deadly ride on a smokin' pump gun. A Wise Guy streetpunk race of 12 bloodstained tracks, stuffed with angry vocals, sharp-edged guitar sound and cold-blooded melodies. Merciless lyrics mostly in spanish, some in english. One-time vinyl version of 600 copies on deep-black wax. Zenowork/Anfibio/Punk Machine/Rusty Knife/Bandworm 2009)
