Beyond Mortal Dreams – Lamia EP (2014) –And they’re back… You might already know these guys from how well I talked their last MLPDreaming Dead up on the old Tower blog. Well, we’re talking up this short but sweet EP on the new website and it’s certainly deserving of it. Doomsayer still kills on the gravel side of things and Maleficus gives that kit a good bashing, while Bloodspawn unleashes torrents of powerful riff melodies and solos that light “Lamia 4:03″ up as a strong indication of where the band is headed. That Morbid Angel influence is still there and I’m not even one bit sick of it. How can you tire of the classics? The EP also contains a re-recorded track from the band’s demo called “Demonsword Infernal 4:49″ which sounds newly revitalized here and menacing as the fiery pit from whence it was spawned. There’s absolutely nothing I can say bad about this effort, other than the fact that I wish it offered more material. It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything from Beyond Mortal Dreams, so maybe they’ve got more freshly grilled demon meat to offer to us in the future. But for now, this is one hell of an appetizer. More!
