Mortillery are an old school thrash metal band from Canada. Nowadays it happens very rarely that I discover new bands I really like, but when I listened to Mortillery's "Evil Remains" on a CD which came along with the German Rock Hard magazine two months ago, I immediately got hooked. After checking a few more songs on youtube I bought their debut album "Murder Death Kill" and I am enjoying it a lot. I appreciate the fact that the vocalist mostly sings with an aggressive, yet "normal" voice, i.e. she doesn't use death grunts/growls, so one can still hear it's a woman doing the singing (or screaming). She reminds me a bit of Dawn Crosby (R.I.P.) on Détente's "Recognize No Authority" (though she sounds less intense) and Lynda "Tam" Simpson on "Behind The Realms of Madness" by Sacrilege (UK). Mortillery are definitely a band I'd like to see at next year's MFVF!
Here's a live-clip of their demo-song "Nuclear Disaster" from 2009:
And here's a live-clip of a new song titled "I Am Destruction":
If all the new stuff should be in the vein of this song, I'll enjoy their next album at least as much as their debut!
