Metal Revolution

Grade: 93/100

Compos Mentis is a death metal unit hailing from Denmark who knows how to play raw death metal. This Danish quintet play metal more mature than you'd expect from such a less known band. The complex, intelligent melodies, a massive sound, groovy guitar riffs, raw, melancholic and brutal vocals, there's a lot of energy in the lyrics and the whole atmosphere is great. The choir goes very well with the elements of death metal on this particular CD. Throughout the whole release Gehennesis has everything a death metal record should have and a lot more to it. I expect great things from Compos Mentis. This debut has left a mark on me and this is hopefully not the end for this awesome Danish band. If you live in Denmark and you want to see them perform live them they will visit Billabong Bar 23rd March and 7th April at Studenterhuset in Aarhus. For more info go to
