Mortuus Infradaemoni - 'Inmortuos Sum' 2LP
Double LP edition on black vinyl in gatefold sleeve with gold print limited to 400 copies
Germany's MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI return in 2022 with a surprise full-length to transport the faithful back to the mid '90s. Indeed, the fire burning across this third album is quintessentially 1994 in sound and aspect - truly, contemporaneous Darkthrone and especially Gorgoroth's early work looms large here - but the duo evince an unsettling weirdness here that's thankfully never belabored. Ghoulish and gurgling sounds seemingly come from every direction, with songs surging and then disintegrating at will, all before righteously headbanging parts crop up and then also disappear like vapor. Above all, the razor-wire attack is thoroughly and threateningly BLACK METAL in its original, olde-worlde incarnation - unorthodoxy is celebrated, and the madcap artistry is almost incidental.
