MERE MORTALS - Condemned to Live K7
MERE MORTALS are an old-school thrashcore band from Lille and the surrounding area. From the very first listen, I was reminded of early DRI records, Cryptic Slaughter or the whole bandana thrash wave of the 2000s, What Happens Next, Life's Halt to name but a few. The riffs follow one another at breakneck speed, 8 tracks in 7min12, with the vocals and the rhythm section rounding things off and adding power to the whole. The lyrics take up themes that are dear to our scene. The print run is 50K7, recorded on both sides with an insert containing the lyrics.
