CURRICULUM MORTIS
CURRICULUM MORTIS
Into Death
(self-financed)
21:09min

Fans of the Swedish Melo-Death Metal genre might get a kick out of this as CURRICULUM MORTIS is a kind of "all star" project featuring Fredrik Andersson on drums, guitars and bass (probably better known for his work with AMON AMARTH, A CANOROUS QUINTET, GUIDANCE OF SIN), Leo Pignon - guitars (A CANOROUS QUINTET, NIDEN DIV. 187) and Mattias Leinikka - vocals (GUIDANCE OF SIN). The original intention of this three piece back in 2001 was to start up something new together, with influences coming from bands such as NILE and VADER. Hmm... having this in mind, something obviously must have gone wrong somewhere down the road as the five featured songs on their debut demo "Into Death" by no means turned out that way. This is basically pretty much in the same vein as their main bands and musically what we've already heard ways too often before. There's the aggressive (a little bit deeper than usual though) vocal delivery, the melodic twin-guitar work and the typical songwriting formular. Ok, it wasn't recorded / produced at Studio Fredman and therefore differs soundwise quite a bit (this is more raw, probably due to lack of money), but despite the obvious musical skills of the guys, it personally already bored me right from the first minutes of the CD-R, nevertheless... I'm simply not the right type of guy for this, as I was never the biggest fan of melodic Death Metal... Maybe you are?
