Mentally Defiled are a band from Greece that plays a very old school form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Aptitude For Elimination" which was released by Violent Solution.
Horror movie samples start off the album before going into more of a heavy thrash metal direction and after the intro the band adds more melody into the riffs and also add in aggressive screaming vocals and blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Back up gang shouts can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and while the music has a very vintage mid 80's feeling the production gives the songs more of a modern and up to date feeling and one of the later tracks also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts and the whole album remains true to a heavy sound from beginning to end.
Mentally Defiled plays a style of thrash that is very heavy and aggressive and they make an old school sound more modern without having to resort to any modern trends, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover thrashing and real life themes.
In my opinion Mentally Defiled are a very great sounding thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aptitude For Elimination" "Thrash Till' Afterlife" "Beyond Redemption" and "Soldier Of The Underground". 8 out of 10.
