In the crypts below Lombardy, something lurks, skitters in the darkness waiting for nightfall before ascending to the surface to wreak-havoc upon the world. This band are Mortuary Drape and this year has them returning with ‘Wisdom – Vibration – Repent’, their latest EP and their first since 2014’s ‘Spiritual Independence’.

                Well, you’d be forgiven for thinking that ‘Wisdom…’ was the sound of a band on a roll, one that hasn’t been lurking in the crypts and mausoleums for over six years because Mortuary Drape pick up like they’ve never been away as the Italian band blast through an exquisite blend of black/death metal with tracks such as ‘In a Candle Flame’ and ‘Circle Zero’ show a band firing on all cylinders with even the Mercyful Fate cover of ‘Nightmare Be Thy Name’ being a strange, but really good cover.

                As an EP, ‘Wisdom…’ does exactly what it sets out to do and that is to give Mortuary Drape some momentum and demonstrate to the world that this band can still deliver time and time again. If you’re looking for an EP some decent black/death metal then ‘Wisdom…’ is a good, safe bet and it really does set the bar high for what will hopefully be an upcoming studio album.
