UK promo cd in cardboard sleeve.
Mithras have steadily evolved into one of England’s best death metal acts, and this third album is their most promising to date. It picks up where Worlds Beyond The Veil left off, brutal and quickening death akin to Morbid Angel, yet tempered in progressive structures, tasteful synthesizers and a cosmic/occult/metaphysical theme which gets spacey enough to leave this influence well behind in Florida. The lyrics aren’t perfect, but adequately capture the haunting, longing cosmic themes surrounding the songs, rooted in Lovecraft and various mythologies. Needless to say the album sounds fantastic, the band makes excellent use of their synth tones and guitar effects to dazzle the listener amidst the pummelling of the drums and grinding rhythm guitars. If progressive cosmic sci-fi death metal is your thing then try this out, Its unique in the world of extreme metal.
