Spanish extreme metal that gets hung up by production
[In Mute] is a Spanish extreme band that packs a massive wallop and has some incredible riffing and some seriously wicked vocals. The opening track is a bit of subterfuge with gorgeous acoustic guitar before the onslaught begins. The vocals are a great mix of growls and snarls and just sound incredible. The one thing that really hurts this album is the lackluster production. The mix is really muddy and the instruments are so high up in it that the vocals almost get drowned out at times. Despite the glaring production issues, this album is still a monster and worth a spin or two.
