Overview

Although the name MARTYRS SHRINE might be new to the scene, it is the creation of Michael Carlisle and Mike Forsberg, both former members of the legendary MORTIFICATION. MARTYRS SHRINE's self-titled debut, a 50 minute culmination of years of songwriting plus their love for extreme metal in its truest form, features a unique blend of death/thrash metal. If you liked Mick and Mike's previous work with MORTIFICATION, you will love this album. The lads have gone back to their roots and recorded an old-school death metal album with modern production - just real instruments with real playing and great mixing. With Mick's distinctive signature guitar sound and Mike's unique death vocals, this is recommended for fans of early MORTIFICATION, BOLT THROWER and NAPALM DEATH.
