Mordatorium Debuts New Track “The Culling” From Upcoming New Album “Obsessed With Death”

Chicago death metal trio Mordatorium is proud to announce the August 25 release of new album “Obsessed With Death”. Inspired by the likes of Grave, Carcass, and early Entombed, Mordatorium deliver harsh, biting death metal fueled by the sounds of the early British and Swedish scenes.

With main man Andrew Oosterbaan handling guitars, bass, and vocal duties alongside Pearl Kacew on drums, recording for “Obsessed With Death” began over the final months of 2016 and the album was completed in the spring of 2017. The cover artwork and visual design was created by Lauren Gornik Illustration.

Check out now “The Culling” below.

Obsessed With Death by Mordatorium

Andrew Oosterbaan comments:

“We’re very excited to present this album, as it has been a long time in the making. A couple of the songs are almost two years old now! It’s also a big pleasure to be able to unleash the first full-length Mordatorium release featuring acoustic drums and my longtime partner in crime Pearl. Obsessed With Death continues the trend begun on 2014’s Raw, steering away from the more melodic and experimental material of Mordatorium’s early years in favor of some more straight forward and nasty sounding death metal. I absolutely love the old-school looking artwork that Lauren did for us, as I feel it fits the current style of the band nicely.”

As Swedish death metal crew The Lurking Fear prepares for the release of debut album “Out Of The Voiceless Grave” on August 11th via Century Media Records worldwide, the band is excited to share first single “Vortex Spawn” today.

We want the riffs to slither out of your speakers like torrents of tentacles, crowned in festering doom. The vocals pulsating with aeons of filth and death. Spewing out of its cosmic, voiceless grave: the ‘Vortex Spawn.’ Timeless Death.”
