Sweden’s psychotic death metal quintet Beyond Mortality play an old school form of death metal, and is something that’ll blow you away… With its Dan Swano Mastered debut CD, “Infected Life”, Beyond Mortality sounds huge and comes across in your face like a pit-bull out of control. Now this is what I call death metal music in the traditional sense, with its heavy, pounding drums, thick-sounding guitar rhythms, and vocals sick enough to give you a first round knock blow to the head. These guys are very, very old school in style, songwriting, musical execution, and remind of such greats as Malevolent Creation, Sinister and early Entombed.
“Beyond Mortality’s” down tuned guitars will make your ears bleed and make your heart pump more blood than it can bear. “Infected Life” has some punishing rhythms that chugga-long, throwing you from side to side and top to bottom. Just imagine being in a crazy-ass moshpit during their live show, and you’re sure to be punished in all its glory and violence.
There are 12 blisteringly hellish, mind shattering tracks on here that are sure to make any fan of death and thrash metal a total convert here. I cannot wait to check out this band’s next release, as it should be even more brutal than hell will ever be. I can only picture these guys getting even sicker on their next slab of raging death metal.
