Well, this is the first time that I've come across Mortal Treason and now I discover that they've already split up! Ah well. 'Sunrise Over A Sea Of Blood' was the band's second release, a dark, spinning vortex of old-school death metal, guitars shredding themselves into a frenzied maelstrom, battling for attention with the throttled bellows of the vocalist. Living Sacrifice and Mortification fans will be well into this stuff. It's good, but of course it does sound like it was made 10 or 15 years ago and there's not a whole lot of variation here. Then again, that's what thrash is, you like it or you don't and there's still a lot of it out there. It's a shame that Mortal Treason broke up but maybe the musicians will go on to greater things.
