5 stars I honestly barely ever give out five star ratings but I can't help it for this band. This band is amazing. I mean really. This is a SELF MADE FIRST RELEASE DEMO! I've heard demos for Opeth and Arcturus and several other bands that I love and they all are extremely bad. That is not the case with this album. This album has so much complexity, depth, and emotion that if you didn't already know that it's a demo you wouldn't in a million years guess that it is. If you put into the information into proportion with all of the other demos ever released then this band will get about 20 times better than they already are. This band will be godly! All three songs on this demo are fantastic. The first song, Tapestry of the Starless Abstract begins with a slightly generic but still complex Black Metal drum beat, dissonant guitars, and screamed vocals. As the song progressive it breaks into a part that is pure bass, acoustic guitar, and violin sweetness. It's so beautiful. There are a lot of clean vocals as well as screamed vocals on this track. My favorite parts of this band is when they use black metal screams over the use of clean vocals. It makes both vocal lines more powerful. Often in this demo, the violin takes over duties for leads rather than the guitars. The next track is mostly the same bass and violin beauty but toward the end develops into some more metal riffs. Tim Charles' vocals and violin dominate on this track. The third song is similar to the first but not as heavy. It it's still a fantastic song but it's my least favorite of the three. On all tracks Mortuary's drums are very fast and technical but he doesn't do any thing flashy. If my predictions are correct, in ten years this band can become the best Tech/Extreme metal band of all time!
