NEWS: Classic MORTIFICATION (Melbourne, Australia) brutal death-metal album "Scrolls of the Megilloth" 20 Year Anniversary (buy 2005 reissue now at Soundmass)

SCROLLS OF THE MORTIFICATION (1992) - CLASSIC BRUTAL CHRISTIAN DEATH-METAL ALBUM 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

2005 SOUNDMASS REISSUE WITH FOUR DEMO BONUS TRACKS - NOW AUD9.00 AT SOUNDMASS.COM

J Sherlock, M Carlisle, S Rowe, Scrolls era, 1992
"This classic Mortification album is one of those albums that would've been on the top of my list to see the light of day again. While you can still find copies of this disc on eBay occasionally, it's becoming harder and harder... until now. Soundmass, out of Australia, has helped allow this album to be readily available once again. In talking of the classics of death metal, this is one of those albums that always seems to get mentioned. Mortification's ultra-brutal death/grind style on this disc is one that has stood the test of time, even 13 years after it's initial release... As far as the musicianship goes, Steve Rowe, Michael Carlisle and Jayson Sherlock do a tremendous job. My favorite being the fantastic drumming of Sherlock with tons of blasting and double bass. The dude just flies behind the drum kit... Soundmass has increased the incentive to buy this album by having enhanced cover art, new layout and band photos and four bonus demo tracks that were recorded during the pre-production of the album. The songs suffer production-wise and may not appeal to everyone. But the long-time, hardcore Mortification fans will love hearing them. Hats off to Soundmass for making this terrific album available once more! If you're into death metal, this is one you can't go wrong with." -The Whipping Post
