Holy fuck, Sweden. You’re the metal gift that keeps on giving. Speaking of holy fucks, Mutant’s one and only full-length is full of them. Mutant is probably the perfect name for this band as they take black metal, add some symphonic elements and a heavy dose of technicality to make some insanely melodic and infectious music. But those riffs. Those fucking riffs! So good. So melodic. So fucking catchy. I dare you to get through the song “Immemorial Lunacy” with your head still attached. It reminds me of that good Naglfar album, but better. Just insanely memorable, fun (yup) blasting black metal with that oh so fucking sweet Swedish melodic hook.
Oh, did I mention those riffs. Fucking hell.
