SUHRIM
The Cunt Collector

It's kinda strange that the Belgium underground is still pretty much overlooked when it comes to brutal Death Metal. For many years already, people basically seem to focus on the American market now (with a few exceptions to the rule, of course)... Well, ok - we probably wouldn't have had such a healthy scene in general nowadays if bands like MORBID ANGEL, INCANTATION, MALEVOLENT CREATION, OBITUARY, DEATH, IMMOLATION and the likes wouldn't have started it all in such an impressive manner. But there's also a lot of promising acts in European countries these days - and Belgium is definitely one of them! If you already checked out the two great "Face Your Underground" compilations, by our dedicated fellows from DeathMetal.be you'll certainly agree that the overall quality overthere is very impressive! One of the bands that had been featured on both volumes of that compilation is SUHRIM... and to me they are also one of the most promising! They simply have the right feel for this type of music, the necessary skills (no wonder, because they have been around since 1989 already and released countless of demos as well as two more CDs ever since) and a crushing production to go hand in hand with it. Their varied songwriting (with a healthy balanced mixture of fast'n'slower parts), the cool riffing, powerful rhythm section and deeply grunted, yet very cool sounding vocal delivery couldn't have been done any better by any American act! And neither the bunch of spoken intros nor their unnecessarily created "controversity" ("The Cunt Collector", "Parental advisory - explicit band!" etc.) do overshadow this quality in a negative way. The only little letdown is the label's rather unprofessional printing of the digipack's backside (a higher resolution would certainly have helped here...). But that shouldn't stop you from supporting this excellent band! SUHRIM simply delivers brutal Death Metal at its best! Period! For all further info check out suhrim.deathmetal.be or contact the label through www.pulsarlight.net.
