The Mist – Gottverlassen (1995)

I stumbled across this forgotten gem one day and on a random Saturday shift, I made my way through the whole thing. First off, let’s put all our cards on the table here. Hopefully, I’m not offending anyone when I say that The Mist (or at least the Gottverlassen album) are a pure Sepultura clone. I mean, just take a look at that record sleeve for a start!

If you can look past that however, there are some good riffs here. The guitars and bass are the highlights of the band; the latter clanks and plops along brilliantly to the chunky metal attack. The vocals are a bit weak and the drums are a bit uninspired but nothing is actually terrible. Without being too critical, I would check out another album from these guys if I came across one.
