2 years after the debut album, MORTALICUM follow up with a new vintage heavy doom-rocking release. These Swedes play genuine, earthy Doom Metal combined with a healthy dose of early '80s Heavy Metal and '70s Hard Rock, with a really warm vibe. Imagine a blend of BLACK SABBATH, GRAND MAGUS, DIO, RAINBOW, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, DEEP PURPLE, THIN LIZZY, TROUBLE and SAMSON... MORTALICUM take it from there and add their own personal touch. What we have here are songs with dramatic arrangements, riffs heavier than lead and hotter than hell, doomy grooves, beautifully yet crushingly jamming bass lines, thundering drum patterns, interlaced with melodies that will enchant you and linger in your head, heartfelt guitar solos, emotion-filled, distinctive singing and passionate performance.
• 2nd full-length album of this Swedish doom-rocking band.
• The band played a short tour in UK in February 2011, including co-headlining show at Doomsday IV festival.
