Mortal Strike – For the Loud and the Aggressive 4/5 (1)

Artist: Mortal Strike Album: For the Loud and The Aggressive Genre: Thrash Origin: Australia Year: 2014
Artist: Mortal Strike
Album: For the Loud and The Aggressive
Genre: Thrash
Origin: Austria
Year: 2014

Putting aside retro ideals and strongly enforcing modern techniques is Mortal Strike. Mortal Strike‘s For the Loud and the Aggressive knows it’s demographic well and for those about to thrash, I got something for you!

With moments that reminisce of mid-era Slayer and Kreator, Mortal Strike takes no fucking prisoners. You can really hear the Slayer in “Release the Hounds of War” in just the vocal presentation of the word WAAAAAAAAAR!

Through energetic riff after energetic riff, Mortal Strike emphasizes contemporary thrash. This is not a let down of an album in the slightest, so all my loud and aggressive thrashers that want some Austrian flavor, look no further.

*This has been edited because this moron of a fucking writer went with the first piece of information he found about this band’s Origin, they are not Australian, they are Austrian. This is what happens when you only look to one place for information, I apologize, this is entirely my fault and a random google search result’s fault, sorry.

Mausoleum Gate – Metal and the Might 4/5 (1)

Artist: Mausoleum Gate Album: Metal and the Might Genre: Heavy Metal Year: 2016 Origin: Finland Label: Cruz Del Sur Music
Artist: Mausoleum Gate
Album: Metal and the Might
Genre: Heavy Metal
Year: 2016
Origin: Finland
Label: Cruz Del Sur Music

Following Mausoleum Gate‘s 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album comes the two-track 7″ vinyl release of Metal and the Might. The release contains two new songs to please all their fans and keep the flame alive. Reflecting once more the eccentricity and uniqueness of these Fins, the title track is a straight in your face metal offering. The B side is occupied for over 6 minutes by the fantastic “Demon Soul,” representing the band’s progressive essence.

In October 2014 the release of Mausoleum Gate‘s self-titled full-length debut album caught the world of Heavy Metal by surprise. Out of nowhere Mausoleum Gate garnered genuine, unexpected attention, considering they do not play your average kind of metal. With an unusual offering that incorporates elements of late 70s proto-metal and a genuine, breathtaking affiliation with the spirit of the NWOBHM, Mausoleum Gate soon rose to the status of “cult-band,” a condition that brought them to play prestigious German Keep It True festival in 2015.
