History

Earthcorpse has it roots in 1989 and the band Insurrection whose hardcore delivery had a home in Peaceville. A demo called Dark Heaven is recorded in 1991. A 12' called Mephitis is recorded and released on LePage's Grave Records. In 1993 the band appears on Shiver records Sometimes Death Is Better and consequently signs to the label for two records. John replaces Paul on bass at this point. Robert replaces Matt after the recording of Born Bleeding. In 2000 drummer Justin leaves the band after eight years and is replaced by Daz. The band returns to its own Grave Records and releases a promo CD single which continues the band's death/doom tradition. The band hails from the isolated island of Guernsey.

Reviews

EARTHCORPSE - THE TASTE OF SIN - SHIVER
Based out of a small island on the channel between France and England, the five piece formerly known as Insurrection and signed to Peaceville, has put out a CD very much similar to My Dying Bride and Anathema. This should instantly tell you that I don't like it. You'd be right, except for the fact that the band keep things completely 'metal' by excluding such idiotic gimmicks as K&F (keyboards and Female Vocals), top hats and corporate face paint. The music is rather simplistic and maintains its plodding pace until near the end where a track tagged to the end ventures into the industrial, but despite the somewhat weaker vocals the Taste of Sin should not be too bad a choice for fans of the British doom sound. Otherwise worth mentioning is the well thought out/ attractive CD booklet enclosed. - Ali "The Metallian"
