Listen: Mortals tracks

July 2014

Listen to tracks from the Brooklyn metal outfit's recent album.

Frances Morgan reviews Cursed To See The Future in The Wire 366: "Two members of Brooklyn group Mortals used to be in an all-female Slayer tribute group, which gives you some idea of where they’re coming from. But Caryn Havlik, Elizabeth Cline and Lesley Wolf look towards more underground forebears for their own music, with their debut album showing roots in hardcore punk (Havlik’s furious drumming on “View From A Tower”; Cline’s suddenly pared down guitar on “Summoning”) and a liking for the downer sludge of Eyehategod – there’s almost no high end anywhere..."

Cursed To See The Future is out on Relapse
