ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"This classic Mortification album is one of those albums that would've been on the top of my list to see the light of day again. While you can still find copies of this disc on eBay occasionally, it's becoming harder and harder... until now. Soundmass, out of Australia, has helped allow this album to be readily available once again. In talking of the classics of death metal, this is one of those albums that always seems to get mentioned. Mortification's ultra-brutal death/grind style on this disc is one that has stood the test of time, even 13 years after it's initial release... As far as the musicianship goes, Steve Rowe, Michael Carlisle and Jayson Sherlock do a tremendous job. My favorite being the fantastic drumming of Sherlock with tons of blasting and double bass. The dude just flies behind the drum kit... Soundmass has increased the incentive to buy this album by having enhanced cover art, new layout and band photos and four bonus demo tracks that were recorded during the pre-production of the album. The songs suffer production-wise and may not appeal to everyone. But the long-time, hardcore Mortification fans will love hearing them. Hats off to Soundmass for making this terrific album available once more! If you're into death metal, this is one you can't go wrong with." -The Whipping Post

The Soundmass reissue is by far the best re-issue thus far
The album that is hailed by many as Mortification's best effort. I disagree, but can understand why someone would say this as this is an incredible disc. Many of today's Christian bands were inspired by this, some even using the song titles as a name for their band. This disc, unlike the self titled, is death metal. The blast beats abound! Heavy, downtuned, fast, chaotic, technical...just an all over good release. Of course, Mortification could never break free from their roots and their love for thrash and classic metal still showed through the D-tuned madness. Steve's love for epic songs began to show at this point as well with "Ancient Prophecy" clocking in at 11:42. The lyrics matured quite a bit on this release as well, still bring forth their belief in Jesus Christ, but in a much more interesting way. Songs like "Scrolls of the Megilloth" are actually straight up Bible teachings. Others like "Nocturnal" were an attempt to show disapproving Christians why they do what they do. The production was beefy and blew away their self titled album. This disc is one of their best and ranks only behind "EnVision EvAngeline" and "Post Momentary Affliction" on my list. A must for any fan of brutal metal, and if you're a Mortification fan, then you should already own this!

"Scrolls" has been reissued several times on several different record companies over the years. Despite this, "Scrolls" was out of print and becoming increasingly harder to find. In 2005, Soundmass re-released "Scrolls" with four pre-production demo tracks added and an 8-page full color booklet. The cover art has been only slightly altered from the original. The sound quality on the original album is great, an may have been remastered, although without comparing the original to this I am not positive. The four demo tracks are much more raw and obviously were not recorded with the purpose of releasing them. However, they do offer the Mortification fanatic a look into the workings of the band.

I personally own several copies of this album now, including the original Intense Records release, a Nuclear Blast promo copy, the Nuclear Blast 1995 special edition digi-pack, a vinyl copy on Nuclear blast and now this Soundmass reissue. There is also a crappy KMG records re-issue of this album that features a cheap, single page insert. The Soundmass reissue is by far the best re-issue thus far. My only suggestion for making it better would have been to include "Butchered Mutilation" or the studio version of "Time Crusaders".
