MOULDERED "Chronology Of A Rotten Mind"

http://castrum.com.ua/

Are you into slamming Death Metal? Well, I really hope so, cause the following nearly 21 minutes long material has an adequate portion of slam and groove elements incorporated. And to my surprise this fine gore-filled kickshaw comes from Colombia. 2013 marks the birth of this 5-piece Death Metal horde and before this actual release the band managed to record a 3-song demo in 2016. Those demo tracks were successfully adapted and featured on "Chronology of a Rotten Mind" plus expanded with 5 newer tunes. At first sight their songs sound pretty much like a slowed down CANNIBAL CORPSE stuff, but with more groove and DYING FETUS-like slam parts. But after a few listens one can easily notice we have something more going on there. Just listen to those tricky bass lines for example. Really masterful execution and all the guitar solos are also worth ones to listen to. Then we have a bunch of ultra heavy razing-like riffs accompanied by extremely sick growls. MOULDEREDs debut album is all the way about the old-school times and interpretation of Death Metal. You wont find there any widely and/or commonly used modern garbage elements of the 21st century. It is definitely about gloominess not fanciness. So watch out! The overall sound production is fat and massive the way it should be. Really recommended stuff, moreover it comes with the right cover artwork! This CD was released by a cooperation of 3 underground labels, thus you have multiple options to order it.

As this is a pretty short album I will also keep my review similarly short. Normally I am more a fan of Old School Death Metal and not so much of Brutal Death Metal but as Chronology of a Rotten Mind is something like a hybrid of those genres I gave it a shot. Overall I have to say there is a lot to like here. Those guys from Colombia sound a bit like slightly slowed down Cannibal Corpse or more streamlined Cryptopsy to me. This does not mean that this album is not fast in places not at all. There are a lot of high speed sections with blast-beat attacks where the listener feels like getting overrun by a bulldozer. However, there are also a lot of passages where the music is crawling and creeping out of the speakers not faster than the zombies in TWD. Mouldered somehow managed to create a sound that distinguishes them a bit from other bands. For example they excessively use the bass sometimes and also the guitars have a very individual tone. With the fuzziness and sometimes dramatic sections Mouldered have created a lot of tension and dark and brooding atmosphere. The vocals underline this impression as they are monstrous and totally evil sounding like some ancient demon has been upset and is now roaring in anger. The production is surprisingly great finding a good mixture of providing the instruments with the pounding sound needed for this musical concept but also give them room to breathe. Not seldom such kind of brutal music gets drowned in a much too filthy sound production. I have been talking about the album being quite short and with only 20 minutes of music I guess you will agree it is. On the one hand this is not really what I would call value for the money as the album is sold as full length. However, Mouldered knew exactly that they had written enough quality material for just this length and did choose not to add any filler material. This is something I can respect as I am of course also of the opinion quality over quantity. With maybe 1 or 2 more songs I would probably give them an even higher rating the next time.

During last year, I heard many 20 minutes long materials as this one that gave me fun and satisfaction from listening to them. I think Chronology Of A Rotten Mind is kind of the release where there is enough good music to fulfill my needs but if it was 10-15 minutes longer material, things could go differently and maybe it would not be a good album anymore. But in the end, as it is now - it is. Mouldered is a brutal death metal band from Colombia which sounds a bit like bands from the 90s (Baphomet-US, Miasma). The production of the album is neither polished nor too modern. I think Mouldered came to the essence of DM with the sound of this album, and they stop at nothing to deliver as much brutality and abhorrence (Intro in I am Legion) as possible. The most of the songs have extremely heavy sounding guitars. Vocals are very low tuned growls that give death metal what it really needs to earn its well deserved name. I like when they do play tracks in mid-tempos, then, music speaks more to me in the form of sounds that suit me better, which is what the band serves on this album quite often. The songs are in style of both - brutal and slammy death metal (tracks 2,3,4,6...) in which Mouldered seems quite comfortable as a band. The album has many moments where the sound-wall is crushing like a beast and they mix it with fast death metal, which is where you can hear little guitar tapping a-la Cannibal Corpse at some points. They also play some fine blast beats to speed up process of head-banging with the flow of the music, which takes only 20 minutes of good-music- time to do so. Mouldered is balancing different paces for their songs which is something that they do very well. I also think that technical bass variations (usually more suitable for bands like Cryptopsy) that they occasionally melt into songs are fresh breath of quality for the songs. It is very death metal album and there is nothing more to it. The strength of the album are very interesting ideas that make this album, a brutal epitome of music. And of course, as brutal as this album comes first, nothing melodic off this record can harm your fans extreme ego. I recommend Chronology Of A Rotten Mind for people who have no mercy for themselves but they actually would like the music for what it is, which for this release, is a death metal decency.
