Staff review by
You know, it's not really easy to write a review about Madder Mortem. First this band is totally original and it's clearly impossible to do any comparisons with some others bands (this is evidently a good point) but also they're really disturbing, unconventional and if some people love them, I know that some people hate them too. It's a matter of taste in my opinion, the ones who really like music and who are enough open minded will like this album… the others… I still don't know…

Really unique sounding album, this one. Can't really compare it to anything I've heard.

Some songs are awesome (Desiderata and Plague on this Land are fantastic), but most others not that much, sadly. So I feel this album could've been a lot better.
