HEADHUNTER D.C.
HEADHUNTER D.C.
Born... Suffer... Die
(Cogumelo Records)
67:33min

HEADHUNTER D.C. is without a doubt one of the most underrated bands ever to emerge from the Death / Thrash Metal underground. Formed in 1987, they have released 3 full-length albums thus far (a new full-length album is anticipated entitled "God's Spreading Cancer"). Here we have the reissue of their debut "Born... Suffer... Die" that (on my opinion) is an early-90s underground gem. More specifically, the album was released in 1991 and is nothing but a lesson in violence, aggression and intensity. HEADHUNTER D.C. deliver rough, traditional Death Metal with loads of Thrash elements in it. It is more than apparent that HEADHUNTER D.C. have been influenced to a great extend by the 80s early-Death Metal as well as their country-mates SARCOFAGO. Still they have a strong identity of their own without copying any of their influences. Although HEADHUNTER D.C. have a rough, intense sound they are also technically skilled thus differentiating themselves from other acts of their time. To celebrate the ultimate reissue of this underground classic, Cogumelo included their "Hell Is Here" demo from 1989, three tracks from the "Promo Tape 90" plus some live tracks as a bonus. I admit that the sound of the bonus material is not that good (completely understandable if you consider that the bonus tracks originate from tapes) but I guess they serve their cause as archive material that simply enhance this reissue. I am not quite sure how many people still exist out there who still praises the early Death / Thrash scene, but for those still loyal to the spirit this reissue is essential.
