I know that so called melodic death metal, which was invented in Sweden and then infected the whole world, has the same number of lovers and opponents, but as a fan of the genre I assure you that there're still very talented bands, or - to say it more carefuly - bands that we can and should count on. Without a doubt Danish youngsters from Compos Mentis that just debuted under Lost Disciple wings are one of them. If you like the bands from Wrong Again Records, this album is for you. It's a great mix of aggressive black/death metal, of course very melodic, yet not sweet nor gayish. It's catchy, easy to remember, just promising. I suppose they will make even better in a future, though I will add more hell sulphur at the cost of melody. Still it is a very good debut.
