Swedish Metal Pages

Grade: 7/10

This is the third demo from the Danish band Compos Mentis. They have been around since 1996 and I really hope that they soon get a record deal and put out a full-length album. The music is some kind of melodic and dark death metal with varying tempo, with screamy death/black metal vocals. There is one thing that I kind of dislike with this demo, itīs the fourth track that is a instrumental and slow song with piano and stuff, it would have been ok on a full-length album, but I donīt think it fit on a four-track demo, anyway the three other tracks is really good. I would describe Compos Mentis as something quite close to "Swedish melodic death metal". So if you like that kind of music, then you must check out this promising band! 7 of 10 Fredrik - January 2001
