Insignificant Dark Electro, Industrial Mordacious Very surprising release this is. Judging by the artwork, I was honestly expecting something Gothic and Vampiric, even (dare I say) amateur. Despite the simplistic nature of some of the track titles ("Kill Them", "I'm Sorry", "Selfish"), Mordacious Mortem deserves a lot of credit for the way this release blows off all dispositions. The opener "Kill Them" is actually a very strong, very stompy Electronic track, flowing in the same vein as the legendary act Suicide Commando. 'Insignificant' takes a Wolfsheim'esque progression, and makes it sound like a Psytrance club tune. Absolutely excellent stuff. The one real surprise here however, is "Gutter Glitter". Many people overlooked this track, and it isn't even mentioned in the album liner notes, so for those who recognise the name, consider yourselves educated. It is in fact a cover, of Gothic legends Switchblade Symphony. The album from which it is taken "Serpentine Gallery" is quite a find. 350
