returns with their third full length release on WTII titled 'Artifacts'. As with 2005's 'Movement', 'Artifacts' follows the Monstrum Sepsis
formula by blending layers of synths over waves of pulsating and pounding percussion. Unlike most bands within the genre, Monstrum Sepsis
places a heavy emphasis on melody and structure.
The signature Monstrum Sepsis
sound is evident from the opening bars of 'Smoke 'em,' to the powerful undertones in 'Glimpse' and carries through to the harmonious 'Wit's End Persistence'. In addition to the sonic soundscapes, 'Artifacts' spices things up with some politically charged samples that reflect the current world moods and trends. These political affairs are exposed in the thought provoking and intelligent tracks 'Opus Dictum,' 'Squelch' and 'War of Ideas.' Overall, 'Artifacts' is a solid release that will take the listeners on an aural journey of substance and significance.
