Label : Galactic Records | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Full-length CD

Ramon : Album number four is a fact for the in 1998 founded Mithras and it kicks off with an interesting question, ‘Why Do We Live?’. I have no clue, but I do know that for me listening to death metal forms an essential part of that life. Not an unpleasant part I must add. It took the band nearly ten years to come to his album. But then there is enough to talk about.

The experimental death metal band from England (Rugby) shows to be right at home in both the technical aspects as atmosphere. Idiotically fast drums and a bit meagre grunts, alongside Carcass-like solos make this a very uncommon experience. The two guys go for it full throttle, but fairly enough lack the band dynamics to make it really roll. It really sounds like layers over, or better, besides each other. But it is damn strange, it must be said. You can sort of thing Krisiun meets Carcass, but with a lot more streetwise aimed vocals. I might as well could get used to this someday, but it does require extra effort from the listener. I might go through that extra effort. It sounds it could be worth it.
