Interestingly blending Modern Death Metal/Deathcore elements with musical acrobatic skills, today we have Eradikal Insane and their crushing debut release “Mithra”. Hailing from France, this band delivers over 45 minutes of technically proficient music that is both crushing and complex. If you like bands like Obscura and The Black Dahlia Murder, this is definitely something you want to check out.
Delivering the first blow with the playful opener “A Perpetual Nothing”, we are instantly introduced to the band’s chaotic style. Their music is quite uniquely crafted as they change the tempo of the songs quite often thanks to a plethora of incisive riffs and highly precise drum patterns as we can hear on “Initium” and “Sediments of Misconception”. Some other time, the band choses to pay homage to legendary bands such as Death, as you can hear in the opening of “Consciousness Alight”.
Perfectly blending old-school Technical DM elements with more modern Deathcore elements, allows songs like “Abrasive Harbingers” to grab the listener’s attention. The vocals are a very solid combination of deep growls and more traditional Death Metal-ish screams which perfectly complement the blistering drumming on songs like “Intrinsic Propensity”. Our personal favorite track is the superbly crafted “Harvest”, thanks to its playful guitar work and bass guitar line. This track also features guest vocals by Aborted’s charismatic front man.
Winding down with the mellowness of “Universal Spine” and the crushing closer “Metanoia”, we are left with a great impression by Eradikal Insane. While the band’s name might be a bit odd, their music more than makes up for it, with its thirst for blood. Filled with powerful riffs and superb drumming, “Mithra” is one hell of a debut release. If you like technical music brings both modern and old-school elements together, be sure to give this French outfit a chance.
