HOLY DEATH - Deus Mortis
$0.00 - $19.99

"Deus Mortis. Meaning ‘God of Death,’ Deus Mortis hits like a giant’s skull used for a wrecking ball—five times over, including their knuckle-dragging overhaul of Entombed’s divisive “Wolverine Blues.”"
- Decibel Magazine

After a near death experience just over a year ago guitarist/vocalist Torie John formed Holy Death. In years prior to this happening death was not an uncommon occurrence in his life having lost several family members in a short period of time. It is from this loss that Holy Death finds its morbid inspiration. Since the band formed last October they've put out four releases that explored the sonic realms of death and doom. Deus Mortis is a meditation on the balance between these genres. Lyrically the songs on the EP are held together by a common thread of the pursuit of spiritual and metaphysical freedom.
