Staff pick by

01.06.2014 In A Mirror Darkly is as intense as a good conspiracy. The occasional Nevermore tones and Martin LeMar channeling Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain Of Salvation) are coupled with Mekong Delta's thrashy clever twists and instrumental eloquence. But the constant outpouring of technical catchy riffs is well-balanced by the slower melodic passages; this means the plot thickens with every song, which only enhances the experience.

  This is sounding very nice indeed. Getting notes of Voivod, Sanctuary / Nevermore, Agent Steel etc. Mekong Delta don't seem to know how to fail.

Shame about the artwork *vomits*

Rating: 7 First time hearing this band. Tight sound. I will give this a few more plays.

  Mekong Delta - the band with the consistently horrible album art

Rating: 7 Really not fond of ''The Silver In Gods Eye'' but the rest of the album is pretty good.

Rating: 7 Mekong Delta never fails.
This is again a good album.
I was uncertain between 7 and 8 evaluation, but considering the really horrible "art"work/cover I decided to keep it low...

Rating: 7 Ok all u people that like to bash me when I say I hear something in a release and you think I am nuts. I am about half way through the I hear a bit of Voivod in this? I swear I do...Weird thrash in general = Prog/thrash is the right tag...
