Cult Classic is the kind of record that rewards listeners for sticking it out to the end. Since many music writers base their reviews on the first three or four songs of a record, Scarlet might suffer for this – after all, they do kick off the record with arguably familiar metalcore elements, which might get them accused of biting some style from this band or that. To be fair, Scarlet’s sound definitely incorporates things that would appeal to fans of The Dillinger Escape Plan, or maybe Between The Buried and Me. But after a few minutes, Cult Classic reveals a unique spirit – it shows itself to be a moody, passionate record, with lots of characteristics to distinguish Scarlet from their numerous contemporaries.
