Is no one going to say it? Though clearly a Polish black metal band, Deus Mortem’s riffing here is very reminiscent of Inquisition, adding a degree of thrash influence that really adds to the intensity and energy of the whole affair. However, Kosmocide is not Inquisition worship, with superior vocals, technical proficiency, and dynamics. The only reason why this was not on more 2019 AOTY lists is because not enough people listened to it, but we can change that. Hail Deus Mortem!
