Boasting a former member of Yakuza, Chicago-based sludge metal outfit Scientist released their album 10100||00101 late last year, which is probably part of the reason why it flew under the nose of most metalheads. We published a great review of it earlier this year, but since that didn't get this great band the exposure they deserve, perhaps this will…
10100||00101 is being re-released via Hell Comes Home, complete with new cover art courtesy of Kuba Sokolski and the same great sludgy grooves and post-metal atmosphere that make it such a great listen. The inimitable Sanford Parker produced the effort, and even though the album is not technically new, we are pleased to premiere a lyric video for the track "Physician, Heal Thyself," which features a killer guest spot by Stavros Giannopolous from The Atlas Moth.
The track starts with a melodic little lick before giving way into a jagged groove, which is complimented nicely by the high pitched screeches of guitarist/vocalist Eric Plonka and Stavros, whose dual vocals create a tense mood throughout the song. Plonka commented:
“‘Physician Heal Thyself’ features vocalist and close friend of ours Stavros Giannopolous from The Atlas Moth who wrote the lyrics about a deeply personal time in his life. Musically it’s a little more adventurous than the rest of our stuff but it’s one of the most affecting tracks on the album.”
