Mors Subita - Human Waste Compression

Made up of former and current members of Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Dark Flood and Catamenia, Finland’s Mors Subita show a lot of promise with their debut full-length release “Human Waste Compression”.
Meticulously crafted and intensely delivered, this record finds the Finns fleshing out a fiercer and rougher sound than what they did in the aforementioned acts by blending the no-holds-barred and scathing thrash chugs of Darkane and Dew-Scented with the more melodic and infectious side of Soilwork and Carnal Forge. The band's style is a combination of death metal and thrash but the technicality of the guitar work is definitely what makes this album shine. The intense, rabid riffs and blistering leads of Mika Lammassaari and Tero Piltonen deliver a furious aural onslaught that’s only slightly diminished in the record’s softer moments, as in the more progressive and emotionally-driven “Entrance of Sickness”.
“One Million Flies” is one the fastest on the record and contains some relentless blasts merged with scathing chugs, impressive guitar solo shredding and rabid vocals that sound like someone who’s having a really lousy, shitty day. “Glance of Fear” offers more of the same, but reveals a bit more melody in the guitar work.
Mors Subita has really concocted something of high calibre in their first effort and if they continue improving in the future, they will eventually ascend into the big league with no sweet. (8/10)
