Sulaco - Build & Burn


From: USA
Year: 2011
Genre: Grindcore/Death Metal

Another one of the many, many albums I slept on last year, if you like your metal dynamic and technical, then look no further. Any fan of Erik Burke’s work with Brutal Truth and Lethargy know that this guy is a riff machine with some of the strangest ideas since Jim Jones poisoned a thousand people in Guyana. This shit is all over the place with odd time signatures, shifting tempos and complex riffs that never get so out of control that you can’t keep your head nodding. There’s a heavy chaotic noise/hardcore influence to the whole album, musically and vocally, with some emotively melodic riffs thrown in to keep the music from becoming sterile and unfeeling. I’ve heard this described as death metal and, while there are a lot of technical DM style riffs and blasting, I wouldn’t go so far as to call it death metal OR grindcore. This is another true metal hybrid. Whatever, you decide. I’m going to check out their back catalogue now cus this album is starting to grow on me like a cock fungus.
Name your price here.
