about

By Tom Murphy Thursday, Mar 5 2009, Denver Westword.

This debut album from Loveland's Mourned by Flies is clearly a mélange of thrash, death metal and grindcore. However, the band's decision to infuse songs like "Eviscerate" and "Dying Circuit" with moody atmospherics using tasteful synth lines sets it apart from so much other heavy music. Sure, the guitarists shred with the best of them, and the rhythm section is well versed in finely textured, brutal passages, but the album doesn't just hurl rapid-fire, razory chunks of sound your way. It's obvious that the band took some time to write music that will age better than that of most of its peers, because each track is evocative and well written rather than merely loud. To a song, Signs of Life is proof that metal need not be lyrically or artistically dumb.
