Muert are another one of those funderground bands pretending to play black metal.
What Muert are actually playing on Ye Canariae Abezan is thrash metal, id est crossover thrash to the uninitiated. All of the tracks on Ye Canariae Abezan are structured like that fusion of speed metal and hardcore punk. Riffing takes after many past bands in Muert’s record collection: the Cro-Mags, Pestilence, Unleashed, Blasphemy, Dismember et cetera. All of those guys are better than Muert as they made music to be listened to and not merely be the soundtrack to chug a generic Euro piss lager beer and run into staggering drunks in a circle pit. They even go so far as to steal from Dismember’s classic album closer, “In Death’s Sleep” on the awfully tedious “Crueldad Desde Islas Canarias”. Yes, recycling the past into pizza thrash is what Muert do.
Muert are simply another group of poseurs rehashing good metal from the past into mediocre rock music for millennial idiots who will be goofing off on their iPhones. Ye Canariae Abezan has no positive musical qualities other than reminding listeners of past, better albums. All Muert will succeed in doing is making Hessians turn off their crappy record and play The Age of Quarrel, Fallen Angel of Doom, Like an Ever-Flowing Stream, or Where No Life Dwells instead. The only entertaining part of this release are Muert’s ridiculous band pictures:
