MORTIFICATION - POST MOMENTARY AFFLICTION (*NEW-CD, 2020, Soundmass) Must-have deluxe reissue w bonus tracks
This is an amazing CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1993 album Post Momentary Affliction.
After the pounding death/grind of 1992’s Scrolls Of The Megilloth, this album sees Mortification returning to their thrash roots, but with a refinement and creativity which would see this recording considered a classic. With the influences of Manowar and Iron Maiden on display, we’re treated to a feast of incredible thrash and speed metal that is laced with death metal. Complex songwriting, precise riffing, masterful bass playing, phenomenal drumming, intelligent lyrics performed in a fresh death growl/thrash shout style, all captured with clear and clean production. Recognized by many critics as an innovative album, and arguably seeing this trio crafting songs at their artistic peak, Post Momentary Affliction is distinctly Mortification and showcases everything fans love about this band.
The original front cover art has been re-created from scratch by drummer Jayson Sherlock. This 2020 jewel case version of Post Momentary Affliction also includes 4 bonus tracks and an all-new layout – a 12-page booklet with lyrics, alternate cover art, photos, articles and an album history written by Scott Waters (Ultimatum/NoLifeTilMetal). This edition is a must for fans of this pioneering Aussie band and any true metal aficionado.
