From Hell is the debut by this Adelaide death metal band. Think the ill-omened parts of Mortal Throne of Nazarene era Incantation mixed with the blast drums of early of Monstrosity and the brutality of Nile and you get an idea of how Beyond Mortal Dreams sound. The songs are very fast, but with lots of breakdowns and heavy parts to create the needed variation. In addition the four-piece include lots of solos - these contribute a lot to the murky feel of the music. Although there's nothing on From Hell that you wouldn't already have come to expect from this genre the band is largely able to put their own touch on things thanks to the disturbing vibe.
The song-writing is competent and diverse. Most of the songs are five minutes or longer, but they don't feel drawn out or boring. The Australians often use lots of samples and effects to create a doomish vibe. The vocals are guttural in the vein of Nile, but also Deicide's Glen Benton appear to have had an impact. From Hell is not an effort where only one or two songs tend to be good. Every song is able to capture interest. The production fits just right. The instruments are all distinguishable, but Beyond Mortal Dreams is able to maintain a compact and meaty sound. Despite of there not being much new under the sun on From Hell it's nonetheless an album that fans of brutal death metal will appreciate.
