With a name like 'death is the beginning' (translated into English) the band has
an excellent name for this genre. With their 2003 album "Inhumanity" the band
got my blessing because of the very strong riffs and the aggression on that album.
With some keyboard lines they created a kind of nice atmosphere and that suited
The band plays the best Göthenburg metal not coming from Sweden. Beautiful
melodies, thrashy kind of riffing and harsh grunts from Ville Viljanen. Big thumbs up for both guitar players;
Andy Gillion and Kevin Verlay, for their excellent riffs and soli. Just listen
to the instrumental track "Apricity" in which one outstanding solo follows the
other. In "Monster in Me" Mors Principium Est creates the
right atmosphere with some keys and the melodic twin solo finishes it off. After
that it goes on very fast with "Wrath of Indra" and even blast beats in the
almost black metal sounding track "The Journey" can be heard on this album.
The band has succeeded again in mixing melody, speed and aggression in a perfect way.
If you are into In Flames, Dark Tranquility and At the Gates this is an album
you can't ignore. Finnish melodic death worked out to perfection delivered by
some very technical skilled musicians.
