MORTIFICATION - TRIUMPH OF MERCY (BLACK VINYL, 2020, Soundmass) ***Limited Edition
Continuing with our release of Mortification albums on VINYL, Soundmass are happy to announce the LP release of their 7th studio album Triumph Of Mercy.
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 box.
This 1998 album was originally released in unison between Nuclear Blast (Europe), Metal Blade (USA) and bassist Steve Rowe’s own label, Rowe Productions (Australia). Following in the footsteps of 1996’s EnVision EvAngelene, Triumph Of Mercy continues with their innovative hybrid of classic metal and thrash, with a hint of death metal. Everything is as it should be – Steve’s out-front bass interludes, Lincoln’s cool guitar solos, tempo changes galore, cool melodies and well-structured songs. Lyrically, having almost lost his life to leukaemia and starting to write songs from his hospital bed, Steve sings about his miraculous recovery.
Remastered for vinyl and with Troy Dunmire’s original cover artwork in its full-size glory, this is the first time Triumph Of Mercy has ever been available on vinyl. Also included is an insert with lyrics and an abundance of photos. This edition is a must for fans of this pioneering Aussie band and any true metal enthusiast.
