What else is there to say about a band who's members also play on an all-female tribute band to Slayer, called Slaywhore! Not much I guess. Mortals released this, their second full-length, via Relapse Records last year. Since it's release, they've garnered pretty strong acclaim and have shred the boards with the likes of Eyehategod and Wolvhammer! They're a three-piece that plays blackened sludge and they've got more music coming this year, in the form of a split that I'm not gonna mention too much about yet. You'll just have to wait!

People use the term “Ungodly” too much these days, especially when describing heavy metal. The term is perfect though when talking about the music contained on Cursed To See The Future. Mortals are the epitome of ungodly with their blackened, off-kilter noise. Album opener View From A Tower starts with absolutely no warning, piercing you with blood-curdling screams and a sound that threatens to overcome you. The guitar is full of menacing low-down melody and groove, while the pace stays at a healthy speed right up to the end.
