MORTIFICATION - SCROLLS OF THE MEGILLOTH (*NEW-CD, 2020, Soundmass) Must-have deluxe reissue w bonus tracks
This is an amazing CD re-issue of Mortification’s 1992 album Scrolls Of The Megilloth.
With releases on label giants like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade, albums which are considered classics, world tours and a sound that is constantly being reinvented – having delved into death metal, grind, thrash, power metal, groove metal, classic metal and even a touch of punk – Mortification is a band that cannot be put in a box. They are the undisputed pioneers of Christian death/thrash metal and Australia’s most successful metal band.
Soundmass has gone back to the early years – re-issuing Mortification’s 1992 album Scrolls Of The Megilloth. Hailed by many as the band’s finest hour, this album sees them perfecting a brutal death/grind style that has stood the test of time, even 28 years after its initial release. In talking of the classics of death metal, Scrolls Of The Megilloth is one of those albums that always seems to get mentioned. Heavy, downtuned, fast, chaotic, technical – an extreme metal onslaught with street level credibility.
The original cover art has been enhanced. This 2020 jewel case version of Scrolls Of The Megilloth also includes 3 bonus tracks and an all-new layout – a 12-page booklet with lyrics, photos and an album history written by Scott Waters (Ultimatum/NoLifeTilMetal). This edition is a must for any fan of death metal and any long-time Mortification fan.
