The unfortunate truth about war metal is that most of it amounts to a lot of posturing with little to back it up. Pedestrian riffs obscured by harsh production or drums mixed twice as loud as they should be does not make them any more interesting to the discerning listener. Thankfully, Mefitic avoid these pitfalls to deliver an LP of occult death metal that is intensely riff-focused (recalling Demoncy quite heavily), catchy and replete with transfixing groove. These Italians have the right idea.
Favorite track: Eroding the Oblates of the Lord.
