Sudden Death - Unpure Burial Review

by Mike Rapin

If I know anything about reviewing CDs, I know that you can't judge an album based on its production or mixing; it's the music that counts. Sudden Death's Unpure Burial has to be an album to remember due to its overwhelming drums.

Besides that little tidbit, the CD is quite kick ass. After listening to the CD, aspects from bands such as The Red Chord, System Of A Down and (some may disagree) Slayer are evident, but besides that, Sudden Death manages to create an almost original sound for themselves. The entire album is compiled with teeth kicking screams (yes, teeth kicking) and totally bitching old-school guitar riffs all on top of bone crunching drums. After listening to the CD over and over, I can't seem to find any real flaws with the music. Everything reminds me of late 80s/early 90s metal "NOT hair metal (Final countdown my ass" and I have to admit, I like it a lot. But, with my aforementioned sound-alike bands, the music on the CD has a new sound to it.

Here's the basic breakdown of the CD:

Vocals: A ear pitching scream teamed with a bowel-churning growl.

Strings: B-I-T-C-H-I-N'; heavy and simplistic, until you reach the finger-breaking solos, then it's heavy and just plain crazy. And I have to give it up for the bass guitar on "L.I.E.F.E" because that song is damn awesome due to the bass.

Percussion: A slap like that from a stepfather to a small red-headed child (probably between the ages 2 and 5) AKA good.

Overall, a great CD and one I know I am proud to have in my collection for when I need to revert to some old-school sounding metal or I want to kick some ass.

Track Listing:
1. Cold
2. You Don't Give A f***
3. "L.I.E.F.E."
4. Living and Dying
5. Damn
6. My Left Shoulder
7. Unpure Burial
8. Black Hearted Soul
9. BTK
10. Dethroned Disciple
