Scribe Of The Pentateuch

An Album By

Mortification

Review by

Listen now

Probably titled as a nod to the band’s second album it can never seem to get close enough to for grindcore fans, the guitars of Lincoln Bowen and Troy Dixon shred all over this disc, conjuring the timing and counter-riffs of early Tourniquet. Rowe’s growls are tough and low (ocassionally mixing high and low, as in the title track or the pub chanting gang vocals of “In Garland Hall”). The overall mix, however, is a detractor at times, seemingly compressing the mids into the lows. Granted, it makes for a refreshing dynamic, though, when a lead break screams atop the din. I think the doom and speed of Scribe has just come the closest to Scrolls as anything in the Mort catalog.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
