(Description by C. Conrad)
All too often a band emerges from the underground, records a promising demo or EP, and soon after, under some perceived notion of urgency, releases a lackluster debut album rife with impotent filler tracks, and is thus discarded to the overpopulated scrap pile of mediocre metal bands. Fewer and farther between are the bands that rightfully and patiently take their time to properly develop their musicianship and songwriting abilities, experiment with their sound and recording technique, and then unleash a debut album, sometimes several years later, that is more than worthy of its time in waiting. Having existed for over ten years, but content to this point to have released just a handful of demos, splits, and a single EP, Italy’s Mefitic fits the latter categorization. With its debut album, “Woes of Mortal Devotion,” hereby released under the banner of Nuclear War Now!, Mefitic proves that patience is rewarded by the quality of its product. Those who are familiar with Mefitic’s earlier releases are likely to note a distinct evolution in the band’s sound on their debut full-length. Although it continues to fester in the wound recently opened by the 2012 EP, “Columns of Subsidence,” the approach to this album is notably less chaos-driven and instead more controlled than previous recordings. On the one hand, it invokes the same raw intensity of bands like Black Witchery and Demoncy, and on the other it conjures a hypnotic dissonance akin to that of a band like Antaeus, as well as a ritualistic dimension similar to that of Necros Christos and Teitanblood. Having been recorded at the infamous Mara Cave, as done previously by fellow countrymen Blasphemophagher and Demonomancy, a gimmick-free and rehearsal-like atmosphere results in a natural sound that successfully enhances the asphyxiating character of the music. Finally, as a perfect complement to the music itself, the artwork gracing the cover of the 12-page booklet, as executed by Manuel Tinnemans, undeniably evokes the same anguished and corrupted vision of a world also represented in Mefitic’s lyrical themes.

Regular version: Black vinyl LP, 3mm spine jacket with flood gold printing inside pocket, 24″x24″ poster, and A4 size 12 page booklet.

Wholesale version: Brzone vinyl LP limited to 100, 3mm spine jacket with flood gold printing inside pocket, 24″x24″ poster, and A4 size 12 page booklet. Sold in increments of 5 x bronze and 5 x black vinyl.

Die Hard version: Beer vinyl LP, 3mm spine jacket with flood gold printing inside pocket, 24″x24″ poster, A4 size 12 page booklet, outer slipcase with spot UV Gloss printed art, woven patch and vinyl sticker.

Looks good! Killer album.

I think the comparisons in the description describe it perfectly.

Great news. This album is a must buy. I already bought it off of Bandcamp, but physical release is always the best one.

What? I didn't get nor heard the album already but the demos/EPs/splits show some of the most interesting Metal of the last 10 years.

I expected more myself but it is what it is. Metal? Yes. Interesting? Not. Beer vinyl looks great, though.

I've listened to the CD twice so far, and I think it's great. The sound is perfect for this type of music - dark and murky, while still retaining the clarity to hear what's going on. The vocals are a bit buried in places, but that fits with the atmosphere. The lyrics are very interesting, and I like the way they use biblical quotes to show that God isn't the bearer of "peace and love" that Christians like to portray him as.

Anyway, this is a top-notch effort in my book. Very well done.

Dead Congregation? If so, I don't hear it at all except for maybe the vocals.

Either way, I think this is a tremendous release. Just as foreboding as the demos, but with improved musicianship and production. The reduction of murk might bother some, but I like that every instrument is audible; it really adds to the nuance.

I can smell the sulfur coming off this fucker.

No problem if you find it boring, to each his own, but they sound NOTHING like Dead Congregation.
