Biography

Wallers, France (1990 – present)

Supuration, also known as S.U.P. (Spherical Unit Provided) is a / band from Wallers, France, formed in 1990. They changed names a few times over the years to reflect the change of topics tackled in their albums.
While Supuration delivers more powerful riffage and -oriented material, S.U.P. displays more -oriented influences alongside . In each case, the band succeeded in suggesting its own unique atmospheres, resulting of innovative and hypnotic riffage, and an ambitious blend of traditional cavernous death metal vocals and clean vocals.

One of many particularities of this seamy band is their ritual of first writing a story in plain French, then transformating them into English lyrics from which the actual music is composed. Thus, every Supuration / S.U.P. album relates a story, inspired by the hypothetical after-death in the case of Supuration; more about Science-Fiction when the S.U.P. aspect is concerned.

They are considered one of the most influential bands of French death metal, inspiring successful French acts such as Carnival in Coal, Division Alpha, Gojira and Kalisia.

Chronology:
