Their first album showed sparks of creativity (mostly in the guitar solos and ambient sections), but ultimately, it is too immature in its form/structure and too full of hero-worship.
The second album, however, shows a tremendous leap forward for the band, as aside from a fragmented and overlong intro track, it has a keen eye for composition both in its individual songs, all of which feel like separate journeys through vaguely similar galaxies, and in its overarching construction, as a complete and focused trip into the outer-dimensions of death metal. As said several months ago, my only complaint with “Worlds…” is the fact that the mix tends to get a bit blurry whenever some of the heavily-distorted solos hit.
Unfortunately, the Candlelight US store seems to have bungled my order, so I haven't received the band's third disc yet.
And for the record, I would say that Mithras' "Worlds..." is the only non-reissue that I've heard from the modern-day Candlelight label that is of any worth at all.
