Review Summary: God is good.
The only thing that matters in life is riffs. Fast riffs, slow riffs, stupid riffs, and, yes, even holy riffs. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what stupid job you have, or who you're attracted to; if you’ve got riffs, you’re cool in my book. The creator knows this. That’s why he chose three God-fearing riff-disciples from Australia, the holiest of continents, to spread his word through the power of the riff. And, you know what? If God supports riffs this good, then he must be a pretty cool guy.
A lot of Christians seem to think that the only way to praise almighty God is to play the absolute worst music imaginable and make everyone, even God himself, hate you. Mortification
knew better. Their debut self-titled is nothing short of pummeling, grinding thrashened death metal played the way it was meant to be played. It was created for one singular purpose: kicking ass and praising the Lord. The guitars are thick and firm, the grooves are hard and deep, and the snare sounds like Jesus himself blasting demon skulls. This is truly holy warfare, a riff crusade against anyone who dare oppose the Creator.
The trio of Steve Rowe, Michael Carlisle, and Jayson Sherlock knew that the only way to enter the eternal kingdom of heaven was to play the most brutal riffs possible and take the battle right to Satan’s court. If God truly loves his children, then he also loves good riffs, and Mortification
take us all to church the way He intended. Absorb the riffs and feel the power of our Lord and savior flow through you.
