In 2019, MORTAL VISION released their first demo, Madness of Messiah, through Take This Torch Records (NL), which was re-released by us here at Redefining Darkness with a new mix and master in May 2021. It is a blistering frenetic whirlwind of fast and furious riffs, a chaotic battery of drumming, complimented by a vicious vocal attack! If you closed your eyes and listened you would swear it came out of Brasil in 1987.
In February of 2021, the band released a brand new single, Forced Extermination, accompanied by a music video that absolutely upped the ante on what they achieved on their demo just a couple years earlier. The combination of the two got our attention and we knew there was something truly special here...
To put it simply, MORTAL VISION are an absolute force! This is Schizophrenia-era Sepultura meets Persecution Mania-era Sodom at it's finest created by a very unlikely source. While there is an endless sea of Thrash revivalist worldwide, few bands possess the same hunger, fervor, and authenticity exhibited here. These 4 young Ukrainian's have delivered a case study in Thrash Metal with their full length debut, Mind Manipulation. MORTAL VISION have come to chop f*cking heads!
