Into the Atrium of Inhuman Morbidity

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (3 Votes)

Hungarian Death Metal patrol Mephitic Grave started out as a duo under the name Mothrot, but became a 4-piece along the way and quietly worked on their debut since then. The end result of that work is Into the Atrium of Inhuman Morbidity, which bows low before the altars of old-school Finnish Death Metal like so many before them. They list bands like Abhorrence, Funebre, and Autopsy as influences, and you can definitely hear that in its grinding brutality that clearly takes from the Finnish scene back in the day, though I'd personally add Purtenance in there as well. This isn't concerned with modern trends or plastic production jobs, and it's certainly not interested in breaking any molds, it just harkens back to the putrid roots of Finnish Death Metal and grinds you into dust as it does so. At under 30 minutes, it's definitely short, but if you can't get enough of the old Finnish sound, this is worth tracking down.
