Recorded at three different studios over the course of a year, Axis Mundi sounds incredible. The clarity, the power, the musicianship, and the brutality aren't vying for attention. They're in absolute harmony. The guitars, tracked by guitarist Matt Sotelo at his home studio, are razor sharp yet spine-snappingly heavy. The drums, tracked by Ryan Forsyth at Private Ear Studios in Winnipeg, Canada, are genre-defining, recalling what Sean Reinert, Gene Hoglan, and Steve Flynn did for Death and Atheist, respectively. And the bass— tracked by bassist Sean Martinez, also at his home studio—has a great deep-end against the ceaselessly wicked rhythms. Tracks like "Hieroglyphic," "Spirit Guide," and "The Sacred Geometry" wouldn't have crushed skulls and blown minds if it wasn't for the accomplished mixing and mastering of Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studios.

Axis Mundi track listing:

01. Vortex of Infinity - Axis Mundi
02. Spirit Guide
03. The Sacred Geometry
04. Hieroglyphic
05. Transcendental Paradox
06. Mirror of Humanity
07. Ascendant
08. Epigenetic Triplicity
09. Embryogenesis

Wow that's some heavy rock n roll. Are they using Gibsons? The lyrics seem to be quite graphic.

What happened to the annunciation with growling vocals to where you could actually understand them without reading the lyrics? Oh wait, there's still Cannibal Corpse. Thank fcking Satan.
