UNLUCKY BURIED "Blast from the Underground"

http://kronosmortus.hu

I do not know whether I have heard any bands from Belarus so far (or, if Ive heard one I did not know their origin). However, here we have a band now, Unlucky Buried hailing from there. We all know that bands coming from that region are strong in rawer musical genres, like death metal. We had to wait quite long for the bands first real stuff, however, as the band was formed back in 2002. This has some advantages of course because they could work out their ideas well so for Blast From the Underground they gathered their very best themes. Their musical direction can be found somewhere along the border of Vader and Cannibal Corpse. Since we have here an entirely underground release and band, the band has been composed in that spirit. Nothings forced or artificial in their play, just pure aggression. No wonder that they start off with infernal cruelty in My First God. The tempo is fast at the beginning, the guitarists use a fair region of the strings, and we also get some thrash ideas beside the death riffs. To make the whole thing perfect, they also use doubled vocals that strengthens brutality. And, if that would not be enough, there are horrifying interludes between the tracks to have the appropriate mood. But they also paid attention to have some memorable moments as well. So, for example, they included and acoustic passage in Burn and Destroy, as well as bursting out solos. One of the best tracks is surely Burn Out My Eyes in which they piled up many themes, but we can also name here the excellent No! too. In this, we can even hear a slightly melodic riff. The other songs are also fully enjoyable. They are technical, brutal yet there are memorable parts in them. They also included Vaders Sothis cover version. The sound perfectly fits the mood of the record, as does the artwork. Even if they do not serve us with too novel things, the record is appropriately strong (both music-wise, and the standard of songs) to have the attention of the underground. They deserve it.

UNLUCKY BURIED "Blast from the Underground"

http://www.metal-observer.com

Welcome to the worst nightmare of allreality! So opens the debut album of this young and pretty vicious outfit from Vitebsk. I was sure this may have been one of the first reviews of a band from Belarus. Nope, as of writing this there are 27 reviews on TMO for bands from this Eastern European country. I have no idea what the gamut of styles are from the other bands, but UNLUCKY BURIED play a mix of technical and slightly ground out Death Metal that is exhilarating and pummelling, and unfortunately for some lengthy parts rather annoying (more on that later). After this sampled opening line, the band waste no time in forging ahead with a vigour one expects from the brutal end of the Metal spectrum that the band are squarely entrenched in. Riffs are crunchy and often dispatched in a slick, speedy manner. The technicality is not overbearing which allows the songs to have a weight that is the cornerstone of the album. The guitars slash and burn, riding on the edge of Grindcore while maintaining a good sense of cohesion and churning more akin to straight Death Metal. Mixed in with all of this are some nifty melodic touches but not so much as to divert from the sadistic nature of the vast majority of the songs. Drumming is laid down with intensity and while the blast beats are copious, they also slog and pound with assurance. There is a good sense of groove along with the sonic jutting, as with songs like Burn Out My Eyes as well as others on the record. Combined with this caustic excursion are some lacerating Blackened riffs that power forth speed and another dimension of UNLUCKY BURIED. Choosing to put a cover on the album may please some but Im not a fan of this for younger bands. Yes, it may endear them to fans who share the same sensibilities but I always find it a bit aggrandizing for a relatively unknown band. It is a good cover of VADERs Sothis, but again Now for the annoying and ultimately degrading point on the album: samples. While it is certainly a tried and successful endeavour to incorporate samples from gore or war films or seemingly just atmospheric pieces of hellish wailing, this is normally done with some brevity throughout songs and albums. I think it is a big mistake for UB to have put so many long, and I mean long, such samples at the end or beginning of many of the tracks. One of the samples is over a minute long! This simply doesnt work; it takes you out of the rhythm of the album and leaves you waiting for the music for far too long. It is so annoying that is knocked my grade of the album down a notch or so. Beware of such actions I say.

UNLUCKY BURIED "Blast from the Underground"

http://www.voicesfromthedarkside.de/

Out from Vitebsk, Belarus crawls this 5-piece act, sticking to an unoriginal name UNLUCKY BURIED. The band was founded in 2002, and so far they have just released one studio album in 2009, titled "Blast From The Underground". The album itself contains 6 of their own songs and a cover of the Polish Death Metal tornado VADER's 'Sothis', added with a video clip for their song 'Inexplicable Need To Kill'. Brutal and relatively technical even, Death Metal this surely is but unfortunately it sounds tedious, sloppy and simply downright boring, without offering much else than bare, white bones being exposed under the hard daylight at the end of the day, so to speak. In between the songs they have used some takes from some (horror) movies, which basically is a nice idea but even that's been used on Death Metal albums about a couple of thousands times (if you allow me to exaggerate just this much). Those cookie-monster vocals don't help their situation much either, I am afraid. A few pretty ear-appealing moments here and there on this record (like ironically their own cover version of that VADER song), unfortunately don't save the album from sinking into a bottomless pit of average Death Metal releases. So, it can openly be declared that this album has met its doom.
