Guest review by

The Unborn, the second full-length of Mors Principium Est, recorded at Listenable Records and known as the best melodeath album in 2005. Well, Mors Principium Est sounded so damn good in The Unborn it grabbed me at the first listen; undying riffs, very fast/good drumming, and prefect guitar harmonies come along with it. Without much ado, let's step in….

Why can't I buy this album anywhere !!!

You can, but it will cost you about $40 or whatever that translates to into another currency.

  I listened to "The Pure" back when it came out in 2005; I was a young lad of 11 and was completely blown away. Then somehow I forgot all about Mors Principium Est (something that has happened a few times with other bands like Katatonia Manegarm and Yob) But now thanks to Metalstorm I'm rediscovering my goddamn roots! Great album for those that love the genre!

Rating: 9 Love the vocals and the guitars, rawer than some gothenburg classics (ie the jester race) but I think that adds to the appeal

Rating: 9 Is it just me or the production in this album is (very) below average? I can barely hear the vocals, and I have the CD, not a low-quality download from
