"ENTRAILS OF THE SOUL"
AETHERIUM MORS is a crushing Death / Black Metal band out of England. The band
originally formed back in 2004 as a studio only project. The band went on hiatus as the
band members were committed to other bands. In 2011 AETHERIUM MORS was
reactivated and their early demos were rerecorded as the bands debut album "DRENCHED
IN VICTORIOUS BLOOD". "ENTRAILS OF THE SOUL" is the bands newest offering
that was released in 2013. This newest releases sees the band going more towards the
Black Metal side, old school Black Metal that is. They have a very cold and harsh
European Black Metal sound that reminds me of a lot of the bands from the mid '90's.
These guys have a very harsh and war like sound that reminded me of bands like NIDEN
DIV. 187 & early MARDUK. There is an almost Speed Metal type sound with the
guitars, but it is blackened to the core. The song arrangements are involved and intricate on
many different levels. Kane Nelson's vocals are done in a graspy harsh and throaty Black
Metal growl style, but where you can still understand them. The vocals also reminded me
of early MARDUK, with some early MAYHEM, DARK FUNERAL & GORGOROTH
thrown in the mix. If you dig any of these above mentioned bands then your gonna love
AETHERIUM MORS. Pick up this release, because you won't be disappointed and then
download their first release for free off their band camp page. A great release, except I
wanted more, four songs was not enough.
