Norwegian Death Metallers Mental Disaster release their new album The Repulsive Abomination on Digipac CD via Death To Music productions.
“Both ‘High Priest of Doom’ and ‘Bow to the Blade’ are bloodthirsty tracks and I imagine they would be a solid sledge to the face when they play them live. The same can be said about ‘Sword of Vengeance’ and ‘Testify and Repent’. The latter having a chorus that is super chant-worthy. I envisage the crowd whipped into a powerful, primal frenzy which is exactly what you want at a metal gig, right? I know that’s what I want.” Carly Gibbs – GoodCall Live
“Mental Disaster’s third album was released on Valentine’s Day 2020 via Death to Music Productions and is one of the strongest and most intense Death Metal albums, I have recently experienced. Unfussy, straightforward and brachial Death Metal for lovers of Death Metal.”Mangowave
The Repulsive Abomination is a heavy mix of groove-based Death Metal, punishing technical drumming, guttural vocals and traditional Death Metal themes. This is a great blend of what we term the ‘Scandinavian’ sound crossed with Deicide, Slayer and classic Morbid Angel. To quote one of their reviews: “The band performs first-class death metal turned into a black, misanthropic, cannibalistic, blasphemous outcome with the antithesis being that the end result is great for the fans of this genre.
Mental Disaster hails from the southern part of Norway, also known as the ‘Bible belt’, but do not be fooled – this is in no way a ‘bible group’! They were formed back in 2011 by the four present members. They have released two full-length albums, Let the Demon Speak in 2013 and Raping the Symbol of Humanity in 2016. The press wrote about Raping the Symbol of Humanity: “Raping the Symbol of Humanity first surprises or even shocks with the offensive cover artwork especially for those most sensitive to religious topics. The music on the 10 tracks featured in a bit over half an hour of playing time, is a brutal, fast and aggressive Thrash Metal heavily influenced by Death Metal”.
