Mors Subita is a modern melodic death metal band hailing from Oulu in Finland’s north. The band was formed in the early 2000 ́s and has since released two demo CDs, two EPs and two critically acclaimed full-length albums Human Waste Compression (2011) and Degeneration (2015), which peaked at #26 on the Official Finnish album charts. After three years of touring and recording, the band will return in 2018 with a blistering new 11 track album titled Into the Pitch Black. The album was recorded at the legendary Tico Tico Studio in Kemi with Ahti Kortelainen (Kalmah, Impaled Nazarene, Sentenced) with additional arrangements recorded at the Demolition Center in Oulu by Mika Lammassaari. Mixing and mastering for the album was done at Illusia Productions by Stefan Pommerin.
This new album from Mors Subita showcases just how far the bands song writing and musicianship has developed since the debut of their sophomore album, with these 11 new tracks being a testament to the work ethic employed within the band. With searing vocals, gut twisting melodies, fierce drumming and the fast yet always tasteful riffing the band has come to be known for, Into the Pitch Black builds on the identity Mors Subita has forged for themselves with their previous albums, and promises not to disappoint even the most hardened melodeath fan.
These new compositions present a new dimension to the ever-evolving sound of the band, with even more emphasis being given to the melodies while also incorporating the use of industrial samples not heard on previous releases. The result is some of the heaviest and most crushing tracks the band has ever written, while still encapsulating their signature sound which has set them apart from all others in the melodeath scene.
