On October 2nd, Finnish Death Metal band Apocryfal released their new EP called “Aberration Of Mind”. The EP is continuation to their debut demo, “Ravens”, which was released early 2012.
“Ravens” got amazing response worldwide:
“The concept is as straightforward as getting your ass kicked at the hotdog stand, it’s bashing like there is no tomorrow and all this with the maximum aggression.
The sounds are very tasty and professional for a demo band, the powerful growls fill the soundscape perfectly.” – Damned By Light, quote from “Ravens” review
“In comparison to Ravens, Aberration Of Mind is much more controlled and prepared manifestation. We read the old reviews and took in some inspiration from them, so we could focus on making a better album without compromising our own style or creativity. Ravens was fast, brutal and raw. The new record is more focused and contains more diversity, although staying fast and brutal. The production was a challenge, as we tried to keep the production clean, but the music as raw as we could.
After laying down the recording and mixing at Watercastle Studio, Finland, the record went over to Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Edge Of Sanity, Witherscape) for mastering.
A complete track listing of the EP reads as follows:
