Quick Review: Mutilation Rites – I Am Legion
Mutilation Rites new EP “I Am Legion” consists of 3 tracks on 12” vinyl, with etching on the b-side. The EP is a precursor to the bands debut full length, “Empyrean”, which comes out on CD from Prosthetic with Gilead handling the vinyl release.
All three songs are re-recordings of early demos, performed by the bands newly cemented full line-up. Heavy, angry, harsh, intense…any or all of these words could be used to describe this record…but you can also through in words like groove or rhythm. It’s a solid piece of American black metal with a little post-whatever vibe thrown in.
