itSELF - Make My Suffer Short

itSELF are a 2 man project hailing across the pond in Brazil consisting of Estevan Furlan on drums and vocals and Ricardo Falcon on guitar and bass. Having done a little bit of research, these guys originally started off as a 5 piece but mucho respect to them for keeping their band going and doing it as a 2 piece and after a considerable amount of time, this is their debut album "Make My suffer Short". These guys draw influence from just about everything creating a very technical blend of metal with even tinges of hardcore in the vocals (which I didn't like at first) but it all works. I was pleasantly surprised by these guys as I knew absolutely nothing about them!

The production is absolutely pristine with a fantastic blend of all instruments. I have to say every song on this is a cruncher with tons of technical parts and breakdowns to keep every type of listener interested. Theres hints of Cryptopsy, Death (latter day), Massacre and Suffocation all in the mix but there's an even wider scope taking influence from just about every sub genre out there. "Make My Suffer Short" is perhaps a gem of an album that the rest of the world needs to hear. I would love to see these guys execute this live because there is alot going on. Oh and it's worth mentioning that Nilton Wood (Teacher of IB&T and editor of Bass Cover Magazine) on bass in songs "I Cant Stop" and "Twisted Into A Malignant Tumor". It's also mixed and mastered at Hertz Studio (Poland) by the Wieslawski Brothers (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated, Hate, Kronos ...) so that explains the beyond mighty productions. The artwork is by Killustrations (Aborted, Emeth, Zyklon, Six Feet Under...) so the pedigree is all good. What shocks me the most is these guys are UNSIGNED!!!

"Make My Suffer Short" is an attack on the senses, look out for these guys because I believe we could be seeing alot more of these guys. nice one guys and all the best on getting a label!
