This War Will Last Forever
October 2006
Released: 2006, Nuclear Blast/Sound Pollution
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

THIS WAR WILL LAST FOREVER is the debut album unleashed by the Scottish hardcore/thrash quintet Mendeed. On tour, they have supported a few of the greater names within the metal scene, like Anthrax, Cradle of Filth, Slipknot, and Trivium. They are now pretty well known in Great Britain.

The album is an odyssey in mean, assaulting, and aggressive hardcore/thrash which Mendeed master in a stunning way. The production leaves enough space for the rhythm section to deliver and back up the band with massive sound.

The 12 tracks on the album include an intro and an outro that sound like they’re taken from the soundtrack of the Lords of the Rings. The playing time is a little too long though, but that’s only a minor thing. Despite its 60 minute length, it felt as though 30-40 minutes was sufficient.

THIS WAR WILL LAST FOREVER is a great debut album from one of Scotland’s most promising acts ever. It’s a really enjoyable album with an excellent mix of genres. The only negative thing is the album’s length and the misplaced intro and outro, but besides that the album is almost a jackpot.
