5.0 out of 5 stars African METAL! March 23, 2009
By Jacques
Format:MP3 Music
After Mind Assault's first EP, "Social Engineering", all South African death metal fans had to wait 3 years for a full-length debut. But I guarantee you, it was worth the wait. Mind Assault is one of South Africa's leading metal acts, and Stigma proves why. From Social Engineering and watching them performing live, there was no way to predict the sound of their next album, but Stigma has left no man disappointed.

Stigma includes everything that could be expected: powerful guttural vocals, strong riffs and aggressive drumming. Personally I find the song titles slightly mediocre: My Donker (Translates to My Darkness), Prison of Flesh, Hoekom? (Why?) and Suffer. Yet strangely the lyrics are a lot more thought through and put well together. I also find the fact that the lyrics are both in English and in Afrikaans, which is quite original as many bands would cater for the majority and only play in English, but I like what this band has done.

On Stigma I am happy to see that the guitar solos have become more renowned: from the outro solo on "My Donker" to the two amazing solos on "Prison of Flesh". The drumming has also become a lot more aggressive, and that it is clear from "Hoekom?" and the drums after the acoustic intro to "Revenge". The choruses are incredibly catchy, especially "My Donker" and "Hoekom?". All and all this is an incredible album, with every song being worth listening to (with maybe an exception to "Tranquil thoughts", their symphonic 1 minute interlude), with some songs which stand out such as "My Donker", "Hoekom?, "Prison of Flesh" and "Veroordeel". The only complaint I could come up with for this band would be that it appears as if the guitars outshine the vocals and make them slightly inaudible at parts. It sounds good as it is but it is simply a suggestion. This band is also incredible live, which is a sign that they are truly gifted as not many bands can pull of a successful show with no flaws.
