Hailing from Germany is Mouth of Madness and the brand of metal that these heathens play is actually madness and chaos combined. Mouth of Madness play an explosive brand of blackened death metal that rips faces to shreds and damns souls for eternity. This self titled EP is five songs of pure blistering hatred that will melt your flesh straight off of your bone if you let it. This release is chaotic, pissed off and entirely blood thirsty and it won’t stop until it has emptied every last vein in your body of your blood.
Mouth of Madness uses no gimmicks and skimps on absolutely nothing as each song is just as barbaric, raw and savage as the last. Right off the bat Mouth of Madness seems to be shot out of hell and from song one you get pelted with blistering metal. All throughout this release these gents don’t let up once as they keep on bulldozing through song after song until your cranium is completely flattened. Each song is a rolling black mass of twisting blackened death metal that aims straight for your jugular without hesitation.
These blackened death metal heathens don’t just steamroll their way from song to song often as most of the songs have intros to them to set the tone for the song. These intros are brief but hair raising all the same and as soon as they fade back into the darkness, the maelstrom of venomous metal begins. This EP seems to have been submerged and soaked in molten darkness for ages before being put on tape and unleashed. Every song is just as sinister as the last and just as neck twisting as the last as you can’t help but to headbang until your head rolls.
There isn’t a moment in this offering where Mouth of Madness plays anything slower than mach five. This release is played at a blistering and blood boiling pace and if you are headbanging, sooner rather than later your brain will bruise and your neck will snap. All of this neck snapping goodness is brought to you by writhing riffs, acrobatic drumming and vocals that seem to have been recorded in the pits of hell. Every aspect of this release is barbaric and incredibly raw. There aren’t any frills within this release as you get pure and unfiltered blackened death metal in its rawest form.
This EP is devastating to say the least and if it were any longer your entire city may be leveled. Mouth of Madness has created something that is pumped full of venom and fueled by hate, and with that you get a release that is headbanging and incredibly heavy.
This self titled EP will be out through Iron Bonehead Productions on October 7, 2016.
