Fiel Mortandad - 2016 - Angel Luciferi (LP)

Fiel Mortandad is a death metal band from Chihuahua City, Chihuahua, Mexico. Angel Luciferi is their latest LP. Fiel Mortandad play a melodic brand of death metal citing Carcass, Cradle Of Filth and King Diamond. They are equally at home slamming riffs down your throat, pulling back and letting the melody take over or wallowing in thundering sludge. The singer has an excellent raspy, blackened shout with a surprising amount of vocal nuance.



There are riffs galore backed by a thunderous rhythm section and driven to even more epic heights by synths in the background. Songs like Codex Gigas and Posesi√≥n De Belial are as driven by demonic vocals as they are dual melodic riffs while Amon Ra and El Exorcista split their time between wallowing in the sludge and in your face aggressive riffing and soloing. With Angel Luciferi, Fiel Mortandad have crafted a solid, aggressive statement of melodic death metal.
