Poland has become well known for its strong Death Metal scene over the years. To mention some of the most powerful names would make for an endless list. So, without any unnecessary name-dropping, let's see what the Polish Death Metal squad Mortis Dei has to offer on their fourth album, Salvation Never Comes.
Utterly technical, complex, blast beat-ridden, modern and fast tempo Death Metal is what this is. At times, the music is spot-on but at others it makes the listener feel that he/she got lost while spinning the disc. Salvation Never Comes is the type of disc that you cannot listen to without concentrating on it, trying to follow what the heck is going on within their songs. There's actually quite a lot of instrumental wankery here; sometimes a bit too much. The drummer could slow down a bit and take a breath. At times, he just blasts through the songs like he is trying to prove he is the craziest drummer out there. Otherwise, there are more positive than negative things to be said about the band's fourth album. They are skilled and well-rehearsed musicians and hands down play well together. They create a coherent wholeness that undoubtedly will receive many approving nods from the extreme Metal community.
Salvation Never Comes definitely has a few good moments and, at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.
