Mesarthim - Vacuum Solution (2021)


Hailing from Australia, Mesarthim creates one of the most mystifying and unique blends of Metal with electronic/atmospheric elements. Similar to bands like Germ, Violet Cold, and Progenie Terrestre Pura, the band’s sound is both bombastic and pretty aggressive, keeping things superbly catchy and still heavy enough for Metal fans to enjoy. With 5 tracks and nearly 30 minutes of music, “Vacuum Solution” is one hell of a unique and engaging release.

The album title sets a very dramatic futuristic vibe with super catchy synths and beats, paired with powerful guitars and fiendish shrieks. This is the exact explosivity we loved from bands like Germ, but Mesarthim takes it to a whole new level with more electronic/dark electro elements. Track like “Matter and Energy” also have a certain Industrial-like vibe, reminding us of Italy’s Aborym but with a catchier edge.

Our favorite track has to be the dreamy “Heliocentric Orbit”, and its dramatic EDM/synthwave arrangements, this track is also geared a bit more towards the cyber goth crowd. Never ceasing to surprise the listener, “A Manipulation of Numbers” ups the atmospheric stakes with very dramatic synths that produce a sense of calm and time slowing down, a very unique aural experience that we found ourselves enjoying on repeat.

Overall, “Vacuum Solutions” is one of those magical releases that is both forward thinking and brilliantly executed. While it might not appeal to everybody, it is always nice to hear new ideas and different ways to create unique and engaging Metal music. Mesarthim is a ‘band’ that has never fit any molds and this release continues the trend. Highly recommended for fans of bands like Germ, Angst Skvadron, and Galaktik Cancer Squad.
