Into Oblivion

Rated 3.8/5 (76%) (5 Votes)

Germany's underground Metal scene has impressed me many times over the past few years. There seems to be a number of extreme bands worth checking out coming from that country.

One of those newer acts is Morthus, a Black/Death Metal band founded in the fall of 2011. In the summer of 2014 they entered Nautilus Studio in Gera, Germany, to record their first 4-track offering, Into Oblivion.

What they offer is heavily Swedish melodic Black and Death Metal that recounts the first wave of Swedish Black/Death and bands like Dissection, Dark Funeral, The Unanimated, Necrophobic, etc. that set the pillars of this genre firmly in the ground. Morthus sounds so deceptively like any one of those legendary names that people could easily mistake them for a reformed The Unanimated or Dark Funeral. It doesn't disturb me in the slightest that Morthus has cloned that sound so well because no other band seems to do this particular style as convincingly anymore.

To keep this short, if you love the 90's era of melodic Swedish Black/Death Metal, I am very positive you won't be able to say "no" Morthus. They have brought this style back to life on Into Oblivion and have done it very well. A killer band, absolutely worth checking out.
