tank_06 What a delicious Halloween treat. I was looking forward to this split, and it definitely brings the pain! Fuckin’ killer tracks. I knew of Mortuous, and desiccated is the shit... but Scolex is new to me, and they impressed big time. You need to get on this, it fucks hard.

Lance Connett Two of the Bay Areas best came together for this amazing split. Both tracks rule, and I really like the subject matter and lyrics to each song. The more you sink your teeth into this, the more you realize it isn't just a random split with two random songs. There is an actual theme here and some thought actually went into this split. Scolex sound is different on this track from their demos. It seems to be less Timeghoul/Demilich and more Autopsy influenced(which isn't a bad thing), and the Mortuous track is what you would expect from them. This is a great split that every death metal fiend should have in their collection. Hail Favorite track: Scolex - "Black Pyramid Ritual".

Delicious "Minister of Propaganda" Finally, a deathmetal outfit that has stopped aping their idols and, instead, have decided to stand with them on their own incredible songwriting accord. Favorite track: Mortuous - "Desiccated".
