Mirrorworlds (Remastered & Reissued)

Eucharist is a band that has made quite the name for themselves, not only with their ability to write good metal, but because of the fact that you could not find Mirrorworlds to save your life a mere couple of months ago. The album was going for outrageous prices on Ebay, but for those of us lucky enough to wait it out it has now been re-mastered and re-issued. Although I have not really heard the original recording so I cannot compare, this version seems to sound good enough; a thick guitar tone, accompanied by fluid sounding drums and vocals.
So some of you might be wondered just who this band is. They’re a Swedish melodic death band from the 90’s more along the lines of At the Gates type melodic as opposed to In Flames, so you know it has a bit of that brutal touch to it as well as the powerful sense of melody. The album flows seamlessly and even takes a bit of an offbeat spin with the musical track “In Nakedness,” which has an oboe lead over it. The track is good, but not nearly as solid as “The Eucharist.” The track flows seamlessly and never gets boring throughout it's almost seven minutes in duration. Daniel Erlandsson (Arch Enemy) does a superb job behind the kit and his skill is as apparent as ever and is further proof of how strong he is as a drummer. Markus Johnsson writes some killer riffs without a doubt. Look at the opener “Mirrorworlds”, the track starts with a fury akin to that of At the Gates' “Slaughter of the Soul”; catchy, yet metal to the bone.
If you were one of the ones who has been awaiting the re-release of this for some time, then I am sure you have already picked this up. As for the rest of you who have yet to get your hands on this gem, I highly recommend you do so.
