Deus Otiosus are a band from Denmark that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school mixture of death and thrash metal with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Sis Mortuus Mond' which was released by Godeater Records.
A very fast melodic sound starts off the ep along with some blast beats and all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and a few seconds later death metal growls and screams are added into the music and the songs also start bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Both of the songs are heavily rooted in the mid 80's to early 90's style of death metal and they also add in elements of thrash and death metal along with some very old school metal solos and leads and while the music sound s very old school the production gives the songs more of a modern day feeling
Deus Otiosus remain true to their old school death metal sound and bring in 2 tracks that are very heavy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, horror, occultism and torment themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deus Otiosus and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Greater Horror". 8 out of 10.
