The Swedish doom rockers MORTALICUM have their 4th album “Eyes of the Demon” released through Metal on Metal Records on November 20th. Their new full-length proves their quality and consistency in the style blending doom, early ’80s heavy metal and ’70s hard rock. Commented the label:
“They definitely have a knack for memorable melodies, groovy riffs and damn fine guitar solos, and they perform with natural ease and finesse. As always with MORTALICUM, the production is one of the brightest points – nice organic sound that is like a balm for the ears of those who are fed up with modern plastic production. For these guys it’s not the image but only the music that matters, and when you hear it, it’s very clear it’s coming straight from their hearts. They give a nod musically toward BLACK SABBATH, GRAND MAGUS, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, RAINBOW, TROUBLE, DEEP PURPLE, THIN LIZZY, CANDLEMASS or SAMSON, but at the same time they have the ability to put their own identity to their songs.”
