Testosteruins has a unique pedigree. The female-fronted, death metal duo hail from Tunis and Cape Town, South Africa, but are now based in Lund, Sweden.
In metal circles, location means very little, and that is true in the case of Testosteruins. Jo Marie Smit (vocals) and Heny Maatar (instruments) churn out brutality, and this is evidenced in the track “Fuck Sharafuck!” from the forthcoming EP entitled Suffering Masculinity. According to the band, “sharaf/sharafuck” is Arabic for “honor/your honor.” The song rages against all cultures, traditions or religions that allow or accept child marriage.
Suffering Masculinity features material written by Maatar and old band ShallIshine members in Tunisia back in 2005, 2006 and 2007, as well as more recent material and new arrangements.
