YomaBarr Wanted to get me this for my birthday (thx Metallurgical Fire for dragging this into daylight!) but I've just learnt a major metal festival I wanted to go to got rescheduled... again. Need consolation. What could be better than this.

Daniel Brown Why do we live? The insurmountable question that we all ask ourselves; the meaning we try to find in the very dust that is our existence.
Volcanic musicianship: planet-shattering riffs and spacey solos, battering, eloquent drums, and a vocalist who wraps everything up to create a big bang of sonic proportions. A transcending and progressive atmosphere that reminds me of the likes of Stargazer, who add this perculiar virtuosity in their music. Favorite track: Why Do We Live?.

Garren Ustel mithras play by their own rules, which is tough in death metal, and they are always at the top of their game regardless of whether they are playing a crunchy breakdown or a delicate spacey passage Favorite track: Inside The Godmind.

It will take forever For us to meet again If you even live - how could you know? The door we used, so casually That ancient gateway Bridging vast spaces between which Light itself had barely travelled That great eye Would blink, flare, close forever Fading from our existence There was no time, no recourse Horror encroached upon the system you were in Abandon you to save us all Between Scylla and Charybdis I mourn for you - but more I mourn for me For it was me who closed the gate With you on the other side So how can I live When you are gone Fallen into memory Your path ends - mine stretches on I journey on alone Now a solitary figure


Their first full length in 9 years, and the follow up to the critically acclaimed 'Behind The Shadows Lie Madness’, U.K. death metal cosmonauts MITHRAS return with ‘ON STRANGE LOOPS’.
Fusing maze like compositions with celestial atmospherics, the end result is a take on death metal that is original to the fullest degree. A sonic aesthetic that is truly other-dimensional, and submerges the listener into a bleak void of blast beats, savage frequencies and shattering vocal expulsions. Enter the domain of Mithras, one of the UK's most uncompromising and extreme bands to date!
