Mekong Delta - In A Mirror Darkly (2014)

The 11th album from this German band.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and vocals.

Mekong Delta is one of those weird and wonderful bands in the metal scene. 

Their base camp is thrash and speed metal. German thrash and speed metal. From that base camp, the band has climbed the hills towards fusion and progressive rock. Not to mention classical music.

Their latest albums has been more in the thrash and speed metal vein.

...Although In A Mirror Darkly sees them expand towards heavy and progressive metal.

The music is still weird. There is a lot of method in the madness and weirdness.

The result is not one of their best albums. It is still a pretty compelling listening and a decent album indeed.

Mekong Delta is a band everyone into progressive rock and weird music should check out.
