Burial - _Enlightened With Pain_
(Lost Disciple, 2000)
by: Aaron McKay (7.5 out of 10)
Burial has it all-together. Pretty intense brutal death metal laid forth on _Enlightened With Pain_, the band's debut release. Having been around for more than four years, this rabid bunch of guys cut their teeth in the underground for more than a significant amount of time. Launching Burial's career from Massachusetts, earning respect in proper death metal style fashion couldn't have been easy, but I feel Burial pulled it off skillfully. This CD is evidence of that. I see that comparisons to Cannibal Corpse must be a dime a dozen for Burial, but to be a bit more concise and elaborate, I think I hear more of a Malevolent Creation / Broken Hope or Fleshgrind mix. The guitar work on _EWP_ isn't something that you might expect hearing from a death metal band; it is rather ridged and harsh with masterful soloing and the whole thing is chalked full of nice fat riffs. Well done. While a band will have to go a mighty -long- way to surpass Dying Fetus in my book, Burial is a firm and solid band in the same vein. Good effort.
