SCUM, the classic 1987 album from grindcore pioneers NAPALM DEATH, has been remastered with Full Dynamic Range and is out now on CD.  The album will also be available on limited edition coloured vinyl LP in the coming weeks.

SCUM was originally released 25 years ago to little fanfare but, unknowingly at the time, would go on to spawn an entire genre, influencing others for decades to come.  To this day, the album is still widely hailed as the most important grindcore album ever made, and regularly features in charts listing the best metal albums of all time.

SCUM has been remastered especially for this release from the original tapes with Full Dynamic Range (FDR), allowing the music’s nuances to shine through, giving the whole album a more ferocious and dynamic sound, and enabling the listener to immerse themselves in the full audio chaos like never before.
