Supuration - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.





1989 - Originally called Etsicroxe ("Exorcist" backwards), the group formed at Wallasey in the north of France, and recorded a demo called Haunted (four titles), quickly followed by a splitlive-tape ( with Scrotum) recorded December 9, 1989 at Avesnes-les-Aubert ( Live in Avesnes-les-Aubert ). The line-up consists of group and Ludovic Loez (bass and vocals), Fabrice Loez (guitars) and Thierry Berger (drums).

1990 - Etsicroxe changes its name and becomes Supuration. First "rehearsal tape" ( Official Rehearsal ) quickly exit, followed by a little first MCD, Sultry Obsession , produced with the help of a record store in Lille, Underground records in the studio CMA Valenciennes , under the leadership of Stéphane Buriez ( Loudblast , executive producer) and Bruno Objoie (sound engineer). Two interesting features are worth noting about Sultry Obsession : the first is that the disc has three beaches even though the cover shows four titles, in fact the first two Hypertrophy and Sordid & outrageous emanation , are combined on a single CD track and the second is that the person who made ​​the group photographs for the cover of the album is none other than Laurent Bessault which soon becomes the bassist.

1991 - Supuration, now with Ludovic Loez guitar in addition to singing and Bessault Lawrence on bass, recorded "promotape" ( Promotape '91 ), again in the studio with Bruno CMA Valenciennes Objoie. This "model" is intended to solicit labels. This goal will be largely fulfilled insofar as no less than six labels sign the group on the basis of it. So leave the "singles" (in 45s) Ephemeral Paradise (Regurgitated records), Isolated (Evil Dead productions and Seraphic Decay records and Skin Drill Records, this time as a split EP with Putrid Offal, Another group of Ludovic Loez) The Creeping Unknown (Morbid Records), and finally the "controversial" In remembrance of a coma , better known under the name Live , released in Distorted Harmony Records, label Mexican is a specialty in fact he signed scammed groups (this was the case with Entombed and Carnage, etc.). Thus unlike the arrangements with the group, the label released this 45 rpm under a heading with no related content insofar as these tracks are studio recordings from the promotape ... and the group receives no counterparties provided for the assignment of his rights ...

1992 - The Underground Records store offers Supuration return to studio CMA, accompanied Sepulchral, ​​Krhomadeath, Putrid Offal, Dagon and Nocturnal Fears to record some songs in order to release a compilation of regional groups "promising". Three titles will be recorded and then come out soon after the label (Reincarnate Records) mounted for the occasion by the store. The compilation CD is called Obscurum per obscurius (note the presence of Ludovic Loez the chorus of the title Desire and fright to know of Krhomadeath). In the course of the year, the band recorded their debut album The Cube . This is a concept album narrating the journey of the soul of a person committed suicide in the world of the dead and discover that it can reincarnate, although doubts about the realization of this reincarnation continues to the end of the album.

The group was approached by the Spanish label Repulse Records who wants to end a compilation of recordings that preceded that of The Cube .
