MetalBite Review by JD on 1/25/2009
One weird name for this band... that is true, but does that spell a bad album? Nope! It perhaps makes you look twice before simply passing it off as run of the mill or something. I am glad that I did get this Polish powerhouse Mord'A'Stigmata
They are a brutal slab of metal straight from Poland, people who always know just how to crush our craniums. The band, as like others from their homeland, do not compromise anything, making the music blast into your head like a run-a-way Mack truck into a brick wall. It os completely explosive, as those guitar attacks could bends steel yet still hold so much talent that it is nearly criminal to hear.
I am not quite sure why they use some German phrases and words in their music, but hey... that is unimportant (other than my more than mild curiosity) because this band is clearly one that knows how to punch out some serious sounding Death Metal. One listen to the songs like 'Manstrual Heroin' or 'Mercury's Sigillum' and you will get that picture clearly. They do not pretend to play Death Metal or have a lack of intelligence... they pound out amazing walls of metallic thunder while making enough changes to show that they are different as well... and all with great thought.
clearly is a band that fits well into the metal frame of things... but they are out to define exactly what they will be bringing into that frame, and that has the stamp of originality all over it. They are musicians that will be leading the new metal charge from the European east, and will vehemently stomp all fake music out in it's path.
