Mrome – Noetic Collision On The Roof Of Hell
This Polish darkened, semi thrash duo going under the moniker of Mrome (which is a weird name – how in the world do you pronounce it?) play a dark, thrash metal-like style of metal, which is packed with grooves and plenty of headbanging moments.
“Noetic Collision On The Rood Of Hell” is a very rhythm-based album of ten songs, which will surely make you go insane while you bang your head until it shatters. Mrome did not choose their debut album’s title “Noetic Collision…” for nothing, raw and contrived emotions here make you feel like as if you’re trapped in the abyss for all eternity.
The cover version of Danzig’s “How The Gods Kill” definitely fucking blows the original out of the park. I definitely believe Mrome’s version has more spark to light a lethal fire within the listener’s ears – hell yeah.
The instrumentation and vocals are done really well; it feels as if the weight of the world is truly resting on your frail shoulders. The studio production comes across clean, raw when it needs to be, and in your face from beginning to end. These guys are like the hidden chambers of death, chaos and psychological suffering, as every song sounds so fucking, blatantly miserable, there is not one bright moment here. People, keep in mind, this is Mrome not Metallica, so no sissy-shit will be found on this bestial hell.
Mrome is not out of this world unique in what they’re doing, but they surely drive home the message within their songs, to the listener “you mess with one of the Polish best and you’ll die like the rest”. These guys are definitely well versed musicians and song composers, and should appeal to fans of Samael, Slayer and early Crematory. Sarjoo Devani
