about

Formed from the ashes of Dunedin band Scum Hammer due to the passing of drummer Brent Carr (RIP). The remaining members swapped instruments with a slight change in sound and proceeded to play a whopping two shows only in late 2016 before disbanding for a member relocating abroad in 2017.

Abschäumer roughly translates to "Protein Skimmer" in German and is a reference to being a more bastardised version of Scum Hammer - deep stuff .

This album was recorded by Nathan around late November/early December 2016 in the carpet dungeon, Ravensbourne, Dunedin.

Cheers to all who came/come to shows at the crown hotel and other Dunedin venues keeping underground music alive. Much appreciated!

Released on Waitangi Day - 6th Feb 2017.

Track Name: Unclear Views
Nuclear Family, Unclear Views.
They want you to suffer too.
Languish many to aide a few.
Unknown future 6 'o' clock news.

Is this the plight?
Of Modern day?
Encouraging the self-induced slave?

Part of them but apart in mind.
Financial plight - consumer life.
National view - old is new.
Pressure to 'succeed' they lay on you.

Is this the plight?
Of Modern day?
Encouraging the self-induced slave?

Nuclear Family, Unclear Views.
They want you to suffer too.
Track Name: Black Cloud
I can't seem to shake it.
It hangs around inside my head.
A reflection of the weather.
Substance abuse feels better.

Black Cloud x 4

I just wanna make it.
Sick & tired of faking.
40 versions of me.
Freedom stuck inside.

Black Cloud x 4
Track Name: Another Kind Of Red, White & Blue
Small-town tempers & small minds.
Suffer through a country blind.

Changing the colour changing the view (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
A barrage of red headed for you (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
Opinions won't change - who cares what you say (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
They'll turn your face into sorbet (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)

Another Kind of Red, White & Blue x 4

Domestic & rural - the usual abuse (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
Old mate copper, every excuse (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
In any town it could be you (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
A new country of Red, white & blue (Violence, violence, violence, violence!)
Track Name: Horrendous Mess
Black plastic bag (face is aching mind is warping).
Filled with snotty rags (constant shiver sweat dripping).
Temporary death (negative mind is talking).
The state that I'm in (fully barking airways ripping).

Horrendous Mess x 4
Blow it out! x 4

Cold sweats, pink eyes (face is aching mind is warping).
Haven't I already died? (constant shiver sweat dripping).
Only one thing I can do (negative mind is talking).
From throat & nose shoot green goo (fully barking airways ripping).

Horrendous Mess x 4
Blow it out! x 4
Track Name: Cheap Death
1000 years of shit - they want you to repeat it (War, war fuckin' war!)
Fresh gleam on a corpse - the carcass of war (War, war fuckin' war!)
Reanimated under command - again & again (War, war fuckin' war!)
One way trip in a body-bag - pain & death (Waaaaaar!)

Tanks roll in - Sirens. It never ends. Why???!!
Burning Heads - violence. Melting flesh - fire!

Cheap, cheap death! x 2

This is what you pay for, this is what you'll see!
War is economy.
This is what you pay for, this is what you see!
War is economy.

Tanks roll in - Sirens. There's more to come but we want none!
Track Name: Doomed To Repeat
How far will the shadows of war stretch?
Loss, pain & devastation - endless rivers red.

Gallipoli! Barbarossa! Syria!
Another hole to avoid.

1914, 1945, 2002 & 2016
Times of peace - few & far between.
A dour, bloody history doomed to repeat.

Doomed to repeat! x 4
Track Name: Wealth & Power
Rich & poor - chessboard war.
Financial gap - this country bleeds!

Who benefits?!!
Who benefits?!!
Who benefits?!!
Wealth & power!

The ones at the top, the ones with the game.
The ones who want you to think the same.
Luxury lap, laptop fap.
Grotesque excess -divide, repress.

Who benefits?!!
Who benefits?!!
Who benefits?!!
Wealth & power!
