Mortuus Infradaemoni – Inmortuos Sum DLP


Available to order



ORTUUS INFRADAEMONI are a duo hailing from Germany. Both members – Profanatitas (drums, bass, vocals) and Nathaniel (guitar, vocals) – played at various time, in the darkest past, with the legendary Lunar Aurora. MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI recorded an unpublished rehearsal demo in 2005 and then followed with two albums, 2007’s Daemon Qui Fecit Terram and 2009’s Imis Avernis, on the cult Cold Dimensions label before fading into blissful nothingness…

As if the past decade – or, more accurately, past decades – of black metal hadn’t happen, MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI return 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. But make no mistake: steeped in the ancient MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI may be, Inmortuos Sum is not an exercise in trite retro posturing; this is the work of revitalized deviants, dragged into the present. Those around “back in the day” will understand…

Topping an hour in duration, Inmortuous Sum is MORTUUS INFRADAEMONI’s long-brewing nightmare made manifest.
