The View From Here #9: Scalphunter

Monday 6th July / posted by Chris Wheeldon

July sees the release of episode nine in RTRFM's twelve-part online short film series, The View From Here - and with it, a new Western Australian act at the centre of the action.

Whatever you think you know about punk rock, chuck it out the window and grin as you watch it smashed to smithereens. Scalphunter are here to obliterate expectations.

The hard rockin', hard livin four-piece took to Northbridge live music venue The Bird's leafy courtyard for an explosive set of raw and abrasive punk rock.

Lead by larger-than-life frontman Steve Knoth, Scalphunter rip through a fifteen-minute, five-song set of blistering rock and lightning-fast riffs, in what is perhaps the most dynamic episode of The View From Here to date.

The band's ear-shattering sound and unbridled live energy has won them many fans in Western Australia and beyond, multiple WA Music Award nominations, and supports for numerous Australian and international touring acts, including The Mark Of Cain, The Datsuns and High On Fire.

The band have recently turned their attention to recording with the award-winning Adam Round at North Fremantle's Electric City Studios, with their debut album slated for release in early 2016.
