For those who have not yet heard sbout this release, Nuclear War Now resurrects this piece of history of the migthy brazilian scene. Here´s an excerpt of NWN press release...
INSULTER was formed in April of 1986 in Belo Horizonte, in the same lineage of early Brazilian deathcore as such bands as Sarcófago and Sextrash, among others. In fact, all three bands shared members at different stages of their development...Insulter recorded and released two demos in this remarkable style in 1986 and 1987. The first of these demos, “The Insult” may be considered inferior due to its unpolished production, as compared to more traditionally accepted standards. However, it can be argued that the rawness of its sound serves as a better reflection of the band's true character. The second demo, "The Last Illusion" [aka "Black Church"], contains a re-recorded version of the first demo's track "Black Church" and another song simply entitled "Fuckin'." This latter track in particular, with its seemingly reckless percussion and frenzied guitar leads, demonstrates the elements of early Brazilian deathcore that separate it from all other subgenres. Following the release of these first two demos and several lineup changes, Insulter took another direction in musical style and aesthetic, moving somewhat away from the sinister black metal of the Brazilian deathcore movement and instead towards redefining themselves more as a traditional thrash metal band, which is evidenced by the sound of its third demo, “Ignoring the Falsity,” from 1989.
"Blood Spits, Violences, and Insults" compiles all three demos from both eras of Insulter, "The Insult," may be considered inferior due to its unpolished production, as compared to more traditionally accepted standards. However, it can be argued that the rawness of its sound serves as a better reflection of the band's true character. The second demo, "The Last Illusion" [aka "Black Church"], contains a re-recorded version of the first demo's track "Black Church" and another song simply entitled "Fuckin'." as well as a previously unreleased rehearsal recording from 1988".
This compilation is available as CD, and LP including A2 poster,8.5″x11″ 28 page booklet: and a Die Hard Red vynil version with patch and sticker . Stream and enjoy the whole compilation below...
