Sulaco - _Sulaco_
(Relapse, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (8.5 out of 10)
It's almost becoming a common thing for Relapse to introduce a new artist by releasing a 3- or 4-track sampler as a teaser for a full-length album. Sulaco has been signed pretty recently and this less-than-15-minute EP is a good indication that Relapse will be further exploring their hardcore/noisecore direction. Sulaco plays this style expertly, but unlike labelmates Dillinger Escape Plan and Converge or rivals Drowningman, their style is very straightforward. You'll find breaks and blast beats throughout the album, no worries, but there's just no surprising element to give the songs extra value. I guess with the proper promotion, Sulaco can become one of the bigger bands in the scene as long as Relapse is backing them.
