Scars on Broadway hitting the torrents

Thursday, July 17, 2008 | 2 comments

Last Wednesday I received an email that I could pre-order on iTunes the self titled debut album of Scars on Broadway. But like I predicted / joked on a forum a few months back, the SoB's album would be out before the official date of July the 29th. And today it turns out that I was somewhat right, although it was not the start of June, as I predicted. The debut album of Scars on Broadway can be downloaded via the bittorrent protocol.

Scars on Broadway debut album track list

The torrent I came up on shows the following titles for the tracks. I have added the duration of each track between brackets.

  1. Serious (2:07)
  2. Funny (2:55)
  3. Exploding/Reloading (2:15)
  4. Stoner-Hate (2:01)
  5. Insane (3:07)
  6. World Long Gone (3:16)
  7. Kill Each Other/Live Forever (3:06)
  8. Babylon (3:57)
  9. Chemicals (3:13)
  10. Enemy (3:03)
  11. Universe (4:15)
  12. 3005 (2:55)
  13. Cute Machines (3:04)
  14. Whoring Streets (3:01)
  15. They Say (2:48)

First Impression

The impression I got from what I've heard before the debut album - They Say, Chemicals, and Live at KROQ Weenie Roast (recording) - hasn't changed: the debut album of Scars on Broadway sounds to me like a more washed-out version of Mezmerize/Hypnotize by System of a Down, which I somewhat expected. Is that a bad thing? I leave it up to you to decide.

Old friend

Fans of System of a Down who have heard some of their live concerts will certainly recognize the part of Enemy after 1:30; We're on drugs ... Do you like drugs?

Torrent downloaders beware

If you're going to download the debut album via a bittorrent client like uTorrent I strongly suggest to read Blocking IP addresses in uTorrent. Wouldn't amaze me if NetSafe (what's in a name) is going to try to send fake data to downloaders again.
