Morticians - Mutilation Recreation
Goth, Industrial First time I heard Morticians was on a collection CD from an old Gothenburg club named Electropolis. On that record they had a very synthpopish sound but I liked them anyway. That sound was a part of a long process; Morticians started as an EBM band, but developed another sound. The synthpop became another project named Eternity Range, and now Morticians have gone back to their old EBM sound.

During the winter of 2004 Morticians rose from the ashes and started to cooperate with the new Swedish label Plutonium Distribution. This resulted in the new record 'Mutilation Recreation' and also some gigs.

The music on this record feels fresh despite the classic EBM-tendencies. I'm not sure but me thought I heard some typical rock-chords in their electronically translation. Maybe it's why I like this music so much? It's so different in a positive way. And from the first second Morticians hold a high standard on the music, never a boring moment.

The extra record with remixes from various Swedish artists feels a bit unnecessary since Morticians own versions of their songs are so great. But Krakilöki feat. Berzefoadx version of "Animal Sex" is really great.
