SOLARISIS - HOLLAND IS MADE OF TOFU - MORBID
Sometimes I sit and wonder what goes through the mind of label proprietors? Look at Holland's Solarisis: a one-man 'band', with an album title like this and a cover photo of an oriental girl munching tofu cubes with the Dutch flag planted on them. It's positively cheesy and all puns are completely intended. Even if the bio calls this death metal, we all know that this combination of lame drum machines and juvenile synthesizers little death metal make. In fact this positive attempt to rip off Phlebotomized (remember those hopefuls of the metal scene?) is truly kerrap. Things get worse, when the band (?) decide to use clean vocals and go for that commercially viable Pyogenesis effect. Yes, it's that awful. This has as much to do with metal as Michael Jackson with heterosexuality and as such it is destined straight for the dustbin of history. - Ali "The Metallian"
