Helmed by the Rotten Sound vocalist Keijo Niinimaa, Finnish band Morbid Evils give us their own dark, twisted and unbearably heavy interpretation of death/doom/sludge metal music which is both awe-inspiring and riveting. They trudge ponderously as if through a toxic, miasmic swamp, giving little idea as to where they’re headed, and then suddenly pick up speed and lash out or resort to earth-trembling heaving parts as a way of culminating their suspenseful journey spread out over four monolithic songs. Each one brings out different aspects of the curious personality, and it only helps in deciphering this phantasmagorical beast. Through rapid evolution, this entity has only grown stronger with each album, imbibing a plethora of human emotions to make their expression even more impactful without cutting down on its girth. A fascinating album devoid of any weaknesses, ‘Supernaturals’ is not only the band’s landmark release but it also takes the sound ahead for the style as a whole.
