Continuing with our chronological release of Mortification albums on VINYL, Soundmass are happy to announce the LP release of The Silver Cord Is Severed.
Mortification are the undisputed pioneers of Christian death/thrash metal and Australia’s most successful metal band. With releases on label giants like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade, albums like “Scrolls Of The Megilloth” and “Post Momentary Affliction” which are considered classics, world tours and a sound that is constantly being reinvented – having delved into death metal, grind, thrash, power metal, groove metal, classic metal and even a touch of punk – Mortification is a band that cannot be put in a box.
The Silver Cord Is Severed (2001), their 9th studio recording, continued the collaboration between Nuclear Blast (Europe) and bassist Steve Rowe’s own label, Rowe Productions (Australia). It also continued with their innovative hybrid of classic metal and thrash, with just a hint of death metal, as exhibited on the preceding albums – the riffs are solid, the melodies are catchy, there are tempo changes aplenty and the production is clean. As always, Steve is exceptional on bass and Lincoln’s guitar playing shines like never before, but what took this album to the next level was new drummer Adam Zaffarese. The son of Rosanna’s Raiders drummer Johno Zaffarese and still in his teens, Adam’s skills far exceeded his years.
20 years since its initial release, this is the first time “The Silver Cord Is Severed” has never been available on vinyl. Remastered and with reimagined cover artwork, this edition – a limited pressing of 250 copies on black vinyl – is a must for fans of this pioneering Aussie band and any true metal enthusiast.
