Having sat through this band's debut album, I was interested to see how they had evolved in the thirteen years since with their new one. It has a Russian title, so I have no idea how to say it or what it means. Anyway, with all the talent on hand for the debut, I hoped this one would be actually good, how very wrong I was. New vocalist Pavel Peristy is in no wise an improvement over the deceased Evgeny Rizhenock, as he just sucks in his own way, which means he pretty much yells, usually on key, but yelling is not an acceptable vocal style. The songwriting is still unfocused and shapeless, there are a few good riffs, but the guitar playing is noticeably not as good as it used to be. S.C.A.L.P. have not evolved in the last decade-plus, they have decayed. A few listenable moments do not an album make.
