Mykorrhiza - _Mykorrhiza_
(Konqueror Records, 2002)
by: Pedro Azevedo (4 out of 10)
This rather brief (just over 16 minutes long) EP by Mykorrhiza serves as an introduction to the band's mostly fast-paced thrashy death metal. Unfortunately, it failed to leave me in any great anticipation of the full-length they have released in the meantime [which will soon be reviewed in CoC]. These Swedes alternate their death/thrash attack with some unexpected clean vocal choruses, and whilst the effect is somewhat strange, at least it gives the band something to build upon. The flat, relatively lo-fi production doesn't help the band at all on this EP, and since there is neither great tightness nor remarkable songwriting to be found, the whole affair rapidly becomes forgettable. It's not that this is a terrible record; it just doesn't really have anything good enough to capture the listener's interest and at least partially disguise its shortcomings.
