Self described as “Acid mountain rock,” Scissorfight has just released their first LP in over a decade and since reforming with a new lineup in 2016. Scissorfight is back in full swinging force. Doomus Abruptus Vol.1 is front to back a damn good time. Caveman Television is the strongest opening to an album you can get, it is an anthem worthy lead into some of the most southern and heaviest doom slicked rock you will hear this year from an OG band of the genre. “Give rock or give me death.”

From 1994 to 2006 the heavy rock band Scissorfight roamed the land, playing their particularly gross and graunching brand of rock and roll for the people and in the process leaving many an eardrum and music venue rent asunder. The people approved. In 2003 and 2004, Scissorfight were named “best hard rock band” at the Boston Music Awards.

After a lengthy break, this new material feels fresh and energised, ready to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting world. There’s a lot of fight and there’s more than a bit of fun. Scissorfight have made the perfect music for people to drink beer outdoors in the isolated woods while the rest of the world burns down around them. The songs and riffs are catchy and completely quotable. 

“Born on a mountain, raised in a cave, fighting and drinking is all I crave” – from the track Where Eagle Drinks sums up this new lineup perfectly. 

A new pair of scissors, same fight.  
Doug “myowngrave” Aubin has taken over the “front beast” position. Delivering tales of absurd and atrocious behaviors from the woods of New Hampshire. 

The drum seat has been filled by Rick “Stixxx” Orcutt. 

Along with founding members Paul “Jarvis” Jarvis on the low end four stringer and Jay “Octocock” Fortin covering the high mids on his six stringer
