Riding on the wave of the death/doom explosion of the early 90s, Mythic’s 1993 EP Mourning in the Winter Solstice is a sludgy and fucking brutal morsel of death metal, with a subtle infusion of the period’s typical doom sound. With a low, rumbling bass that follows heavily in the footsteps of Winter, the EP is face crushingly heavy, and does well to stick close to its death metal roots, all while invoking an apocalyptic and sinister atmosphere. Best of all, the band’s three members are female, making them somewhat of a novelty. Moreover, the little sampled intro at the beginning of ‘Spawn of Absu’ further supplements the album’s old school ideals, giving it a sense of character and innovation. Vocally, the EP is as dirty as it is in every other respect. Guitarist Dana Duffey lays down some dense and sinister gutturals that assonate remarkably well with the grimy riffs and ominous atmosphere.
Recorded and mixed at Studio-L, Wierton, WV, March 1992.
This album is really more of a novelty. It's an all female death metal band. They use the saming heavily distorted, earth quaking bass guitar that can be heard in many mortician songs. Fans of Mortician's music (not their horror movie clips) may find this band intresting. The EP itself is only about 13 minutes long featuring three. 3 people found this helpful.
