Morthus are a band from Germany that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Into Oblivion".
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the ep along with some solos and leads which also dominate throughout the recording as well as a great amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the vocals also utilize both black metal screams and death metal growls.
You can hear a lot of Swedish influences in the bands musical style and the songs also have a 90's vibe to them at times and the fast tracks also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the songs stick to a heavy musical direction.
Morthus plays a musical style that mixes the 90's melodic styles of Swedish black and death metal together, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and blasphemous themes.
In my opinion Morthus are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blinded by The Holy Light" and "Symphony Of the Black Death". 8 out of 10.
