‘Galactic Hunt ‘ Album released October 13th.
Following on from their epic performance at Bloodstock Festival to upwards of 12,000 people at 11am, Evil Scarecrow are now gearing up for the release of their long awaited 3rd album (the first recorded with their current line-up) ‘GALACTIC HUNT‘ with the legendary producer Russ-Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, The Wildhearts, Exploited, Evile, Sikth, Oaf etc) at the helm.
As ever the album will include influences from across the metal genre melded together with the inimitable Evil Scarecrow humour and just a smattering of some rather more imitable dance moves!
The finest heavy metal band ever to write a song about a robot probably. Galactic Hunt was produced and mixed by Russ Russell at Parlour Studios, Kettering, UK Mastered by Dexter Russell in the garden. Dr Rabid Hell has some “words of wisdom” on the making of the album and their 7 foot robot, Whitaker 5: “We worked with some incredible people to bring this album together; a world class producer in Russ Russell, a guest accordion player and very special guest Hugo Myatt. You might remember him as Treguard from the classic cult TV show Knightmare. We thought it’d be great to get him to do some voiceover for our track that pays homage to the show. Famous for playing Treguard in the cult, classic tv show Knightmare, we thought it would be great to get him to voice over for our track which pays homage to show. He also added some extra layers to some other tracks, most notably Space Dementia! He was a total legend, and his missus was bloody lovely too!
Space dementia is sounding super War-of-the-Worlds-epic because of his contribution.
“With Brother Pain being a time traveller and a bit of a kleptomaniac we occasionally find some gems in his massive horde of collected trinkets. We’ve had Whitaker 5 for a while, knocking about in our giant gothic sky castle in Norway. He was getting cranky just wandering around bringing us the occasional packet of Space Raiders and cartons of his special moon juice, so we thought if we wrote a song featuring him [Space Dementia] we could probably just pretend he was prop and let him on stage to bust his moves. It gets him out in the open for a bit of a dance, keeps his mind off world domination for a while. The earth owes us big time really. The sheer power of our music must have saved humanity a thousand times over. You’re welcome by the way!”
