Mayara ‘Undead’ Puertas: A Perfect Fit
Vocalist Mayara ‘Undead’ Puertas makes her full-length debut, evidently, stepping in as a replacement for the long-standing lead singer Vitor Rodrigues.
Puertas brings a low, dry bark that can plunge into profound depths or soar to higher pitches.
Versatility and Skilled Musicianship
Amílcar Christófaro and Castor refuse to settle into a predictable groove, providing relentless energy that propels Rene Simionato’s virtuosic guitar work.
The album traverses chugging death metal, blistering thrash, melodic black chords, occasional clean passages, and captivating technical fills.
Productive Hiatus: Track by Track
In fact, examining each track individually would underscore the band’s productive four-year hiatus, proving that their time was well spent.

Captivating Twists and Turns
Though none quite reach the epic scope of “Blood Sacrifice,” both the title track and “No Fate” offer captivating twists and turns.
Indeed, “Hate,” “You Must Proclaim,” and “Hero for the Ages” provide a visceral experience that resonates on an instinctual level, while still incorporating experimental elements.
Impressive Guitar Solos
Furthermore, throughout the album, Simionato’s guitar solos shine, leaving a lasting impression, although it would have been interesting to see them further explored given the song lengths.
Cohesive Flow and Potential
Surprisingly, the band’s technical prowess maintains a cohesive flow from start to finish. Meanwhile, “Far Beyond Existence” could have ventured into acoustic interludes.
Unyielding and Intense
In conclusion, “Far Beyond Existence (MP3)” remains unyielding, delivering bone-crushing thrash death metal with relentless intensity
