To say that the legendary Mick Harris (Lull, Quoit, The Weakener, Monrella, Painkiller, Napalm Death etc.) is back with a bang after Scorn takes a well deserved kip would be an understatement. Prior to 'Over Depth' there was a single Fret 12" released in 1995 on a Downwards offshoot label, and then nothing. Now he returns to the alias, full-force with ten killer tracks of explosive, skull-rattling, cavernous, beyond heavy electronic music that proves he's not lost his mojo, and then some.

- Over Depth by Fret
It pleases me immensely to be able to proper crank up new material from living legend Mick Harris (Napalm Death, Scorn, Lull, Monrella, Quoit, Painkiller) I’d almost given up hope of hearing any new stuff from him since he put Scorn to bed. Thankfully he’s back under his Fret handle - a name he’s only used once previously on the sole 12” on Downwards offshoot Resonance back in 1995. His latest offering feels like the culmination of his thirty-plus years in pioneering dark, heavy and uncompromising music. ‘Over Depth’ has a gargantuan, incredibly explosive, powerful sound. The earth shattering bass we know and love from Scorn is there, notching up the tempo on thunderous, distorted, industrial drums for some high impact rhythms that reverberate in vividly realised, absolutely cavernous, bone chilling soundscapes. Beyond the brutal exterior of these tracks is some expert sound design - a lot more detail is revealed once you're locked in, and he goes brilliantly dubwise on the f/x. This stuff through a big rig will absolutely demolish the place. All stone cold killers - serious business.
