Mors Principium Est

After more than 20 years, six albums and various line-up changes, Finland’s melodic death-metal rockers Mors Principium Est are back with their seventh album succinctly titled Seven out on 23rd October through AFM Records.

Listeners are promised death metal almost progressive in its brutality, combined with sophisticated orchestrations that, used sparingly, never drown in bombast, and fuse with dramatic, melancholic melodies over ten brand new songs and an album that succeeds in its balancing act between old school and modern metal.

So far so good, what’s also worthy of note is that Mors Principium Est currently only features vocalist Ville Viljanen (Who wrote the sombre lyrics and functioned as the main producer) and British guitarist/songwriter Andy Gillion.

Tracks featured on Seven are: ‘A Day For Redemption’, ‘Lost In A Starless Aeon’, ‘In Frozen Fields’, ‘March To War’, ‘Rebirth’, ‘Reverence’, ‘Master Of The Dead’, ‘The Everlong Night’, ‘At The Shores Of Silver Sand’ and ‘My Home, My Grave’.

The guitars and orchestral parts were recorded in Gillion’s home studio, with drums and vocals recorded at Finland’s Ansa Studio before finally being mixed and mastered once again by Thomas (Plec) Johannson, a long-time friend of the band, at The Panic Room in Sweden.

Next year an extensive tour is planned with musicians added for live performance, notably Iiro Aittokoski (Drums), Lauri Unkila and Jarkko Kokko (Guitars) and Joni Suodenjärvi (Bass).

Regarding this matter, frontman Ville remarked: “I am really happy to announce that Mors Principium Est will join Wolfheart on their European tour in 2021! It has been too long since Mors Principium Est last toured Europe and now we will get to do it with our friends in Wolfheart. A great way to return to European venues. Going to be an awesome tour!”

Ahead of that, the band has brought out two singles taken from the album, namely ‘A Day For Redemption‘ and ‘My Home, My Grave‘. You can check out the videos for both of those right here at RAMzine.
