MIND ASSAULT - Metal Rites

Mind Assault appeared on the South African Metal radar late-2004 from the Helderberg area in Cape Town. Across the last half a decade they've built up their reputation with dedicated live performances, a demo EP, their debut album Stigma, a DVD and this their latest EP illustrating the band's maturing into a cohesive group, all of the lessons learned on display. The seven tracks deliver a thunderous wall-to-wall dose of Metal, two of which sport the band's customary inclusion of Afrikaans lyrics. Not shy to let rip with lead breaks, the classic Metal character is fully ingrained in Mind Assault's audio attacks. The EP was co-produced by Mind Assault and Theunis Cilliers (of Day Turns Night fame), and was sent to Tampa Florida where it was mixed and mastered by Brian Eliott in Eric Rutan's Mana Studios (Rutan of course being Morbid Angel's former guitarist). For a good example of how local extreme acts have risen to an equal footing as that of international imports, do yourself a favour and check out Mind Assault's Metal Rites.
