Review

Often seen but nobody wants it - why? Surely the cover doesn't look too advantageously, but how the hell can anyone know that a band called MELISSA from Sweden sounds like Necrophagia (Ohio)? Both, the style and the vocals remind me just to Necrophagia. Maybe not that well played and sometimes you may think the band should get together more often in a rehearsal room, but in that case it doesn't really matter. It’s still underground Death Thrash that mix some slower passages with speed elements. "Corpsacrations Death", the second song on this EP, reminds me a lot to VIRUS on their "Pray for war" LP, especially the vocals parts. Not that uninteresting...a rawly young band lost in the Thrash jungle. I am pretty sure when those guys had release this piece about a year later, it would have been cult, I don’t know...
