Mithras – Behind the Shadows Lie Madness (2007)

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. 

RIYL: Morbid Angel, Ulcerate, Portal, hallucinogens
