Mind Erasure are a band from Greece that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2022 album "Connive" which was released by Soman Records.
Dark soundscapes, synths and acoustic guitars start off the album while percussion's can also be heard briefly before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a lot of melody and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Throughout the album you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the songs also having their atmospheric moments.
Some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length along with some of the songs also adding in a small amount of clear singing and choirs as well as some female vocals and whispers also being utilized briefly, one song also introduces spoken word parts onto the album. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover battles, violence and schizophrenia themes.
In my opinion Mind Eraser are a very great sounding melodic and progressive mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Azrael" "Sour Eyes" and "As First Light never Comes Part III: Life's Epilogue". 8 out of 10. - ADifferentShadeOfBlackMetalZine
