Mythos’ ’Pain Amplifier’ album is shredding, Finnish death black Metal of the highest caliber. Featuring former Belial guitarist Jukka Valppu, Mythos burst onto the scene almost out of nowhere with one of the heaviest albums in extreme metal history. Mikko Laurila’s vocals sound almost as if he literally vomited them forth, and the music is tight and surprisingly catchy considering the ultra brutal nature of the whole thing. Pain Amplifier was the only full-length from this band, this is a fitting monument to the annals of Death Metal history especially with the flowing melodicism of black metal. Originally released in 1995, recorded at Tico-Tico Studio in Kemi, Finland by Ahti Kortelainen (Impaled Nazarene, Sentenced, Wintersun). Special liner notes by Luxi Lathinen (journalist for the Metal Crypt since 1999) and new booklet design.
