Morfin - Inoculation

Morfin is a four piece DM band from Pico Rivera, California. Members are Miguel Hernandez- Drums, Pedro Gonzalez- Rhythm/Lead Guitar, Michael Gonzalez- Bass, Jesus Romero- Lead/Rhythm Guitar/Vocals. Inoculation is their full length release on February 21 2014 through FDA Rekotz.

The opening track is called Evil Within. Brutal and fierce are the first thoughts that come to mind. Dark Creator is song number two. A heavy early nineties DM influence circulates through these riffs. Lethal Progeny, memorable bass line and catchy guitar licks make this one to bang your head to. I am reminded of early Entombed, Death and Benediction. Identity Killer, prepare to slam your way into the mosh pit with this tune. Like a tank crushing bodies under its wheels, a devastating composition indeed. Cryostasis, relenting drums start this song and leads us into oblivion. Well executed production gives this album the early DM sound quality which is well fitting for its content. Primordial, very intense and well written bass line with slight distortion is a nice touch and paints a solid passage for the next song and title track Inoculation, I will have to say this is my favorite composition with ripping solos and massive drum attack. The final song is a cover, Leprosy (Death), the vocalist does a great job at capturing the Chuck's legendary vocal style. The drums maintain a steady rhythm as well as bass and guitar. Overall, true underground DM followers will enjoy this album. The art on the cover is done by Badic Art and fits the raw DM spirit is its purest form.
