CD Review: Mordax Tells Us About "Violence Fraud Treachery"

Denmark thrash/death metal band, Mordax are releasing their new album entitled “Violence Fraud Treachery” on February 24. The physical version of the album will only be released in Europe, Israel and Japan, but a digital version will be available worldwide on that date. The album was mixed and mastered by Swedish metal legend Dan Swano (Opeth, Asphyx, Hail of Bullets).

The new album begins with a 3-minute instrumental introduction to get your pulse pounding for an onslaught of great metal music. The song “Trademark Strangulation” lays out the perfect blueprint for thrash metal with fast guitars, quick drumming and powerful, in-your-face vocals. Mordax dive into the dark side with “Devoured By Life” as their death metal side comes shining through. The power and speed just continues as Swano provides guest vocals on the bone-crushing “Monarch Of All.” The instrumental song “Contrapasso” is a slow-building invitation that calms your nerves in the beginning with the gentleness of acoustic guitars, and then blazes a path of destruction by the end of the song. The album finishes with some more outstanding death metal with the song “Treachery.”

Mordax have a handful of dates scheduled in their home country of Denmark. Please visit their facebook page ( for more information on their tour dates and how to get copy of their new album “Violence Fraud Treachery.”
