Premiere: Chicago’s Mordatorium Are Eager For The “Biting Cold”


The Year of Death Metal just got a bit grosser.

In this, the year of our lord two thousand and seventeen, death metal has thoroughly asserted its dominance over the extreme music landscape. Sure, there have been quality black, doom, and grindcore albums this year, but death metal has not only matched them in quality, it has far succeeded them in quantity. I’d even go so far as to say that for every 3 terrible atmospheric black metal albums that have been released on bandcamp this year there has been a quality death metal album! A bold claim, I know.

If you’re of the mindset that there is no way that this pace can be upheld, well I’ve got good news for you friend: the hits are just going to keep on coming, and Mordatorium are here to prove it to you. Hailing from the heavy metal hotbed of Chicago, Mordatorium play a fuzzy, crunchy style of death metal in the same vein as Entrails or Grave, but if either of those bands had been raised in a cave beneath a swamp. That is to say it’s straightforward, it’s filthy, and it’s catchy as hell.

Today I’m stoked to bring you a new cut entitled “Biting Cold” from their upcoming, self released album Obsessed with Death. As the name suggests it really has some bite to it, steadily chugging along, withholding the full brunt of its ferocity until the perfect moment. As per usual, don’t just take my word for it. Smash that mf’ing play button below and get bitten by the cold.

Obsessed with Death is being self released on August 25th. You can preorder it here and give the band a like on Facebook here.

    Thought I recognised a familiar name in the promo kit, that fucking mad logo and album art were created by Lauren Gornik who did the first run of TovH shirts for us.

      Nice! I was going to comment on liking the visual aesthetic, now it makes sense.

      Lauren Gornick is pretty. Elmo invite her onto Elmo’s Show and get her to perform with Elmo!!

      Lauren used to be in a band with Andrew for a long time (Panzer) – they’ve been friends since they were in high school. She’s awesome.

      • Bert

        He does that. We know not what he/she/it is but he/she/it has a habit of posting posts from others and it’s all a bit weird but he/she/it gets credit for persistence.

        By the way, nice catchy tunes – I’m buying. Ernie would have loved it.

        …and I’m a drummer too…
