Face Your Underground Vol.5
(DeathMetal.be / Rotten To The Core)
77:26min

This is already the 5th edition of this still very impressive sampler series, courtesy of the DeathMetal.be guys. Nothing has really changed compared to the previous incarnations - not for the better, but luckily also not for the worse. You still get a big bunch of very promising sounding brutal bands for a minimum of cash (5,-Euro plus postage). Bands that cover the whole spectrum of this genre (from gory to technical acts, from thrashy to ultra brutal ones), so everyone interested in checking out fresh blood is adviced to give this a try. What I already disliked about the previous compilations is the fact that bands appear again and again on different volumes. This time it's ABORTED (who should be excluded anyway because of their already wellknown status in the underground), IN-QUEST, SUHRIM, WELKIN, UNLEASH THE FURY and MURDER INTENTIONS. They all appeared on volume 1 - 4 in one way or another already (partly even more than once), so where's the sense to include them again? The remaining 16 bands are luckily all unknown yet to supporters of this series, so feel free to give PREJUDICE, FATAL RECOIL, GUTTURAL, PULVERIZE, PESTIFIER, ICARIAN, APOCRYPH, MYSTICA, AVOID, CHALICE, REALITY, SELF INFLICTED, PREDATORIA and FUNGUS INC a listen. I'm still totally surprised how healthy the Belgian underground scene is these days. Lots of very cool bands overthere. Additional info you may find at www.deathmetal.be/face5.
