Morbid Messiah – In the Name of True Death Metal

The cover says it all. The skull of a beast falling (or floating) in darkness welcomes us into a world of the foul and macabre. Morbid Messiah provides the soundtrack. The Mexican act drives death metal straight into your ears and delivers it unfiltered. On their new EP, In the Name of True Death Metal, they show respect for the classic death metal elements that have kept this style alive throughout the decades. That means you can expect guitar riffs that roar with might, equally rowdy guttural vocals and fast, pulverizing drumming.

Sounds guide you into a cramped cellar and trap you in to experience this woe again and again. Things get good and settled in once “Putrid Voices” appears. Morbid Messiah pushes their signature formula of raw instrumentation, but prepare to worship the delicious guitar solo that soars atop of the rubble—revealing to listeners an aerial view of some disastrous scene. “Condemned to Hell Sores” trudges along in the beginning, but amps up its forces gradually. This zone is dominated by thick guitar riffs and varied shades of vocal delivery. Then we have “Legions of Death,” ending our metallic joyride under three minutes, but it’s packed with plenty of grimy goodness for us.

Morbid Messiah have whipped up a traditional death metal brew, and it hits the spot. They sought out to leave us with a genuine death metal experience, and we got it. Guitar riffs remain chunky, feral solos pop up, the percussion is quite irresistible. This is death metal that’s likely to remind you of an old school persona, and the production is great. In the Name of True Death Metal is available via Godz Ov War Productions on January 31st. Here, try a bit:
