Beneath the Burning Key
Mendeed have been getting much deserved praise from all quarters for their high quality death-like metal. This, their newest single, will do nothing to hurt their reputation. Blast beat drumming, screaming vocals and power rifting is all over this stuff. There is no subtlety in this lot, not that is any needed. The single is to celebrate their first headline tour of the UK and no doubt they will deliver the goods live as they have on past tours with the likes of Cradle of Filth and Slipknot. If you like brutal driving Brit-death metal then this lot are for you. Its good to see that Scotland can still produce metal as such quality.
