DELIRIUM (Mexico) Review

Delirium All these years of dying Review at Zombie Ritual Zine

DELIRIUM “All these years of dying…”

The Art Records

Well, maybe this is one of the most underrated death metal bands in Mexico, lately. They’ve been active since more than 10 years ago, and released a couple of productions (including an excellent album recorded and produced in Germany) but is hard to believe that they haven’t stepped into a major status in the underground scene yet. Or maybe they’ve already done it, but they hide it very well hehe! Anyway, this CD is an excellent example of melodic death metal with extremely complex guitar riffs, and interesting tempo changes. Of course, they know about progressive lines, and they use to the limit. All musicians have many musical resources, and they know how to take advantage of them. Also, they still use these melancholic atmospheres throughout the songs, like a trademark since the beginning in 1999 or something, and that’s the most interesting point behind the music, as guitar riffs are very melodic, but also are very aggressive and there is a perfect balance between both characteristics. My favorite on this CD is “A Filthy Poem” which is an obscured song with aggressive guitar riffs and sad guitar lines, all blended with excellent tempo changes and great technique. Vocals are guttural and remind me a lot the style developed in Gothenburg, in the 90’s. As I said before, this is a great album coming from a great death metal band, and is one of those cases makes me wonder what’s going on in Mexico. Highly recommended. – Victor Varas
