It’s been four years since Mass Infection last released an album, the thundering, grinding brutality of ‘For I Am Genocide’. Now they have pushed on further into the black, over the edge of extremity into a world of twilight brutality. Everything about ‘Shadows Became Flesh’ shines with a new arcane luminosity; the guitars weave bewildering, obscure patterns, the atmosphere is siphoned from the most twisted nightmares, the drum barrage is utterly overwhelming. ‘Shadows Became Flesh’ sounds breathtaking in its brutality. This album doesn’t just set new standards for Mass Infection, it throws down a formidable challenge to every band in the death metal genre.
