Finally some more pretty cool Black/Thrash from Lithuania's Dissimulation. Compared its predecessor, this album packs more punch thanks to a slightly better production - everything is clearer and simply comes out sounding more "powerful". Atiduokit Mirusius is a bit more difficult to throw directly into the Black/Thrash category, since some songs really sound like Thrash and some purely and simply Black (early 90s raw and dirty style), as opposed to a mix of the two; but overall, these is still a Black/Thrash affair. In general the band stuck to its guns, simply introducing a few twists - a slight "black 'n' roll" vibe can be heard here and there, giving this one an edge in terms of catchiness over the previous album. There's even some very minor flirt with groovy parts, although nothing predominant enough to turn off those who can't stand that sound.
Catchiness and "groove" aside, these guys aren't into gentle pop music - the album is pretty dark and sometimes "violent", thanks to a lot of pounding drums, abrasive and heavy guitar work (including a few flirts toward Death Metal, but not quite getting there), and some hate-filled vocals that can compete with the best in terms of harsh Black/Thrash vocals (the songs are sung in Lithuanian, however the booklet includes the English translation.) Not quite in the big leagues of the genre, but above average.
