MetalBite Review by JD on 6/15/2010
I look for pure talent, bone smashing sonic power, amazing writing ability, straight-out originality and of course some extreme heaviness to tie it all together in my music. A good mix for metal, most bangers would say. I find the perfect combination some times, and I sometimes just get one or the other, then there is the crap that I will not talk about. That is what music is all about. The balance between the components that make up metal. Now Resurrecturis
At its simplest of foundation Italy’s Resurrecturis
is a explosive Death Metal band, yet there is this extra little bit more that makes a great band.. extraordinary. Combining sheer brutal yet complex Death Metal with some shading of both wild Thrash Metal and some intense Grindcore added in for good measure... this band is not for the weak of heart.
This album in a nutshell is a pure blast of Death Metal, but it is also a sobering and heartfelt work of pure art. The album title means ‘I don’t want to die’... and this CD winds it way in lyrics through a persons life from the awkwardness of being a teenaged kid right through into becoming an adult. A biography of laboured pain, weighted regrets, unabashed hatreds and even quasi-love ending as a pained sort of look back at a life that cannot be so celebrated, yet could be respected in the end.
It takes a whole lot for art and extremism to end up coinciding... and it seems that the five member Resurrecturis
have accomplished that. Biographical Death Metal? Don’t know if that fits, but it is as close as you can come. Art is what an artist sees it as. Carlo Strappoa (lead guitar, vocs) has a perfect view of what he has been making, and the world just has to discover it now.
