digital_canuck 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.

whiskeyworship I am grateful this album finally released after so long in the making. Mister Macey's guitar and drum styles are much appreciated to liven up the intense metal genres. Will miss Rayner's bellow but am excited to see what comes; here's to more creative output in the (nearer) future! Favorite track: Time Never Lasts.

about

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!

Track Name: Between Scylla and Charybdis
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
