Mortalized & Evol (Japan) - The Killer SPLIT 7" (2000)
Only good can come out of me repeatedly repeating this unquestionably factual grind-related statement: Mortalized is one of the best deathgrind bands ever. Speed and Satan, boys. Remember?
One of Matsubara's major influences is most definitely Trey Azagthoth of MORUBID ANUGER, however, Evol is actually much closer to the band in question. Rapture and being a fanboy aside, I can't say that I enjoy Ikeda's utterly thin bass-drum sound! But, obviously, Mortalized is still well worth it. Play with the EQs or something, if you will. Evol is good stuff too, really + a pretty intro, there. Death metal is fun.
And I quite like those Mortalized lyrics.
SO I CAN'T FIND THE WAY TO GET BACK MY EGO WITHOUT BREAKING THE MAD REGULATIONS.

Limited to 500 copies. Sold out. BIMI025 on Bloodbath Records. Evol certainly destroys Mortalized on this one, at least as long as we're talking about cover art. But those inner sleeves are pretty fucking random stuff.
