Scorn is an English electronic music project. The group was formed in the early s as a side project of former Napalm Death members Mick Harris and Nic Bullen the latter as one of the founding members of the band in Bullen left the group in and the project continued on until the end Scorn - Governor as an essentially solo project for Harris.
Since their early years, Scorn is often associated with industrial and experimental music, particularly with their early releases as a duo with much of Scorn - Governor Earache Records -era output since until Since the departure of Scorn - Governor inmuch of the output has been minimalist beats with an emphasis on very deep bass lines, often resembling dub and trip hop in structure.
With Bullen's departure in AprilHarris has been the only member of the project since then. Many fans were confused by the contrast between Napalm Death and Scorn, but Harris sees it as a natural progression for an artist with a restless creative drive. I still love sound Spaceball Ricochet - Marc Bolan - Acoustic Warrior just want to keep pushing, pushing and pushing.
After leaving Earache Records, the project kept pushing the dirty bass and heavy beat sound, subtly changing with each release. The intervening years since saw a break in recorded output except the release of a live radio jam on Vivo Records in with live dates Scorn - Governor up periodically. Starting inHarris began stepping up activities as Scorn, starting with the 10" Whistle For Itwhich apparently to Harris' dismay was so poorly mastered as to have lost Scorn's trademark low end.
In earlyScorn released the first of two 12"s on Combat Records. The second release came out in Each 12" contains one new track and a remix by a Combat Recordings artist. Combat also released a 12" containing remixes of the aforementioned Scorn - Governor by other artists. At the same time, Harris also recorded another new 12" for California-based Record Label Records, which was released in as limited edition of copies on clear vinyl with handmade packaging.
This album also marked the first time since Bullen left the project that Harris has worked full-on with another musician excluding the track Scorn did with David Knight on the "Rise Converge" compilationdrummer Yan Treasey.
