How do you summarise a band that has been around for nigh on 20 years? With releases on label giants like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade, albums like "Scrolls Of The Megilloth" and "Post Momentary Affliction" which are considered classics, world tours and a sound that is constantly being reinvented - having delved into death metal, grind, thrash, power metal, groove metal, classic metal and even a touch of punk - Mortification is a band that cannot be put in box.

...Which leads us to 2009 and Mortification's 14th studio album "The Evil Addiction Destroying Machine". Having taken 3 years between studio recordings for the first time ever and having written an album unlike any previous release, Mortification have returned with a hybrid metal sound akin to the experimentation found in their mid-era albums. Steve's massive groovy bass lines, Adam's jackhammer drumming release that yet again forges new ground for Mortification.

Citing influences like Arch Enemy, Sodom, Malevolent Creation and Sepultura, fans of this gamut of metal will all find something to enjoy.
