Yes, I listened
to lot stuff much worse than this debut record… Considering
that MORIDIGAN exists since the beginning of 2009, the
guys based in Niedersachsen (Germany) provide a quite impressing
performance. The 6 track self-financed EP starts with the title
track and confirms what is written in the press-flyer –
the opener Accursed is heavy on Deicide through and through.
However, Accursed isn’t reducible to that.
MORIDIGAN shows who is responsible for the musical background
definitely. In further playing time this release develops a certain
independent existence letting Deicide and Suffocation shimmer
through just reduced. Armed with a latent proclivity for technical
demand MORIDIGAN lets enough space for respectable groove
and blast-shreds. The interlaced melody-lines or speed-defusing
don’t sound pushy; they establish that modern elements harmonize
with the sledgehammer quite good. And to bridge with Arnheim (vocals)
overseas (dudes, this corny joke has to be), the doubled vocals
are a pleasure for every Glen Benton fan. Grab this EP and the
forthcoming first longplayer.
