Pro-Pain guitarist, Eric Klinger, gears up to release his hardcore band's third CD, "The Book of Mourning" via Da' Core Records on September 29th.
Since the release of 2003's "Resurrected," Pittsburgh 's Built Upon Frustration have made the gradual ascension to the top of the hardcore metal heap. A bevy of live shows, highlighted by the band's unrelenting brutality and now infamous beatdowns has garnered the band a devoted following, one that should devour their latest offering, "The Book Of Mourning." A near flawless display of hardcore metal, BUF finds itself at a unique position in the hardcore scene, able to cull from both crowds without losing any credibility. Highlighted by tracks like "Perish" and "Drowning In Disgust," longtime fans will make instant note of the more predominant metal influence, something that guitarist and founding member Derek Kovacs is well aware of.
"This disc is a little more metal, but it's still hard," begins Kovacs. "There will be some guys who may want to hear more 2-step parts, but they will be wrecking people when we play.

A band has to grow and evolve or people (and the band) get bored. Who wants to hear the same album over and over again? I think The Book of Mourning will set us on our way to gain popularity with both metal and hardcore fans. I also like the fact that even though the material is a little different, you know it's Built Upon Frustration." More...
