Spinescrape is a cross between Dio-era Black Sabbath and slower-paced Iron Maiden. 

Spinescrape supplied us with a three track demo that featured the following tunes: "Filtered" - an atmospheric rocker with strong guitars and a great beat; "Imprisoned" - a slower-paced song with a more accessible melody and excellent vocals; "Pushed Away" - an even slower-paced song with a heavier chorus that, unfortunately, doesn't work as well as the first two tracks. 

Spinescrape is at their best when they turn up the juice a little. Judging from this CD, they must sound great when performing live.

Spinescape: John Quick, lead vocals and guitar; Chris Beard, bass and vocals; Steve Scott, rhythm guitar; Paul Owens, drums/vocals.
