Morta Skuld are a band from Wisconsin that where around in the 90-'s and played a very heavy, dark and occult form of death metal; and this is a review of their early 90's demos which where re-issued by Relapse Records as "Through The Eyes of Death".
Drums range from slwo, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with some dark sounding death metal riffi9ng.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast death metal riffs that also have a thrash edge and dark sounding melodies being thrown in on ocassion, while the lead guitars are very dark, melodic, primitive and chaotic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep sounding death metal growls with some horror film samples being used on one song, while the lyrics touch on dark, occultic, satanic anti christian and gory themes, as for the production it has a very heavy and dark sound to it while still having that raw demo feeling to them.
In my op0inion Morta Skuld where a very good early 90's death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacrificial Rite" "Preacher Of Lies' "Of Evil" and "Eternal Suffering'. RECEMMONDED BUY.
