Mortal's dance/industrial music makes a welcome change within the Christian field. People who appreci­ate the industrial influence of bands like Nine Inch Nails or dance/metal crossovers like Growforce, should enjoy Mortal's drum machine/keyboard rhythm tracks, over-layed with well-distorted guitars. The refreshingly intelligent lyrics are often vocally distorted in typical indus­trial manner with sampled film-track style voices regularly featured. Helpful com­mentaries/thoughts appear on the lyric sheet. Stand out tracks are "Mythox", "Cryptic" and the more laid back "Rescinding" while the dark "Sinnister" featuring some seriously heavy guitars. "Enfleshed" appears twice on the album; a remix without verses on the tape and a remix with distorted vocals on the CD. The LP was brilliantly produced by the unique Terry Taylor, he of Daniel Amos (DA) fame. A very striking debut

Good, but I think the true starlet on this album is "Tuesday Assasin".
