Mentor are a band from Poland that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a mixture of black, thrash metal and hardcore punk and this is a review of their 2018 album "Cults, Crypts And Corpses" which will be released in November by Pagan Records.
A very heavy thrash influenced sound starts off the album along with some angry shouting vocals and hardcore punk elements a few seconds later while black metal screams are also utilized at times as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and blast beats are added into t he faster sections of the songs.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also adds in elements of black'n'roll along with most of the tracks being under 3 minutes as well as the guitar leads being done in a very melodic style when they are used briefly and one track a small amount of semi clean vocals can also be heard and the music always remains heavy and stoner rock influences are added onto the closing track.
On this recording mentor adds more black'n'roll elements to their mixture of black, thrash metal and hardcore punk, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover blasphemy and horror themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mentor and if you are a fan of black, thrash metal and hardcore punk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "We Dig" "Death Mask" "Churchburner Girl" and "Gather By The Grave". 8 out of 10.
