Ahh, this is truly a Melodic Death Metal-lover's wet-dream come true. You know all those European (mostly Swedish) bands who promote their music by saying "if you like IN FLAMES, AT THE GATES, and DARK TRANQUILLITY then you'll...etc"? Well this is one of the few albums I've discovered where this is actually TRUE. If you like them, then you'll definitely enjoy "Mirrorworlds".
The band kicks off into high-gear with the epic title-track which goes through peaks and valleys of melodic godliness, with drumming from none other than Daniel Erlandsson (need I introduce?). Then comes my favourite song on the album "Dissolving" followed by the equally incredible "With The Sun", which has some great Death Metal-grinding (over melodic riffs of course), and ends with a great clean guitar-passage which repeats and fades, giving you a nice change of mood. Overall this album, musically, bares a very close resemblance to early IN FLAMES and definitely "Slaughter Of The Soul", but mind you, the production is very "loose", but focused (if you can imagine that), and the sonic qualities found on this album have their own uniqueness that's altogether very "Eucharist" in the end (for lack of better words).
Oh, and I can't forget to mention the song "Demons", which starts with bells and wolves howling etc. A cliché, I know, but then the song just fucking RIPS YOUR HEAD OFF with some kick ass Mauling Melodic Death (take note on future band name). Overall, I can say to any of you Melodic Death-heads: this album is difficult to get, but if you see it anywhere, or have the will to order it through WAR Records, you won't be disappointed. It may be just the answer you were looking for to get you out of the IN FLAMES/DARK TRANQUILLITY/AT THE GATES-hole of endless worship (we might add SOILWORK to that list now I suppose)...
