The first time I heard SUPURATION was on a comp CD filled with French extreme metal bands that came out in the early 90s. That was my first real encounter with the harder stuff from the French metal scene. Can’t say that I kept up with SUPURATION after that. 20 odd years later I sit here with their new album in my lap. And having not followed them over the years this is like meeting a new band for the first time. I don’t know if it is just because they are French or if the French try their damndest to be odd but this is just as awkward as I expected them to be. It moves in no straight lines instead it twists and turns like an obstinate child. But I gotta admit that this isn’t as off as I thought it to be. I can actually follow it with getting a headache. A surprise I didn’t expect. This is death metal the French SUPURATION way. Anders Ekdahl
