If there’s one death metal band to make it in the 21st century that should be highly noted, it’s the UK duo Mithras. These guys have all the traits of death metal: the blasting drums, tremendous riffs and harsh vocals, but they entwine space ambient with it and it’s a fucking trip! The ambient sections are the furthest thing from filler too; maybe it’s because I normally listen to a lot of ambience heavy music in general, but they got it down.
Anyways, this is their third full-length, and as a longtime fan of Worlds Beyond the Veil, I was looking forward to this. It takes a few subtle twists and turns, but it comes off as a logical progression for the band done right.
