not only released an album combining Death and Black Metal as
fast as possible, but they care for musical and lyrical draft,
dealing with all kinds of human diseases.
The band presents
the music in very melodic style and I can feel the endeavour for
fine lead guitar melodies. After the mystical introduction De
Morbis, the variable track Yersinia Pestis marks an
acoustic exclamation point: the effective riffing touches the
emotional nerve centre immediately. Symphonic attachments enrich
the piece in addition, enwrapped in rough and organic sound vesture.
The voice oscillates between dark growls and typical Black Metal
screeching. Every now and then, the speed is throttled for a while
and measure changes attach a complex touch. The finishing part
foreshadows catchy and groovy nuances, but ends abruptly.
Inner Warfare and Last Man Sane glow through the
continuous high-class guitar work, some technical finesses show
up and consequently AEGROR do not miss out alternation.
The downright masterpiece follows with the epic composition Plaguebreeder.
During the nine minutes playing time, everything turns out to
be felicitous: the dynamics, chords to bang one’s head,
the groove, the hooks…a nice example for extreme music with
Easy-going the crew gallops on with the melodic Resurrection,
which counts with depressed rhythms and interesting guitar techniques.
The partly stomping track The Scourge blasts heftily from
time to time and offers nice contrasts, but seems to be more cumbrous
and clumsy, ere the auditory canals get knotted by complex rhythms
during the concluding piece The Creature Inside.
De Morbis shows different faces: the album is melodic,
technical and complex; it offers slightly dissonant and hard to
digest sounds as well as beautiful melody arcs and catchy chords.
This dynamic alternation leaves the impression of an ambitious
release with long term effect!
