3 stars Fleshgod Apocalypse is a death metal band (brutal death), that use to add symphonic passages into their music. Does it works? Depends on the songwriting. And Mafia EP are not that kind of brutal technical incoherent metal. It doesn't sound boring. The blast beats are hot blooded fast and clean. And for me, this is the higher point. I don't know why, but the Fleshgod Apocalypse drums catches my attention in a good way. From the first track to the third, all good songs for any death metal fan. So came the fourth track, a cover from At The Gates' song "Blinded by Fear" (taken from my favorite At The Gates album, Slaughter of The Soul), and it's OK. Finally we reach Mafia, the last track: A great piano instrumental.

It's a good EP/album. But nothing here drives myself to buy their stuff.
