MORTUUS - Diablerie CD


Released June 14, 2022.

Third album from Sweden's prominent Black Metal act. An ascending opus of decaying light and decline.

Thematically, the new album continues the exploration of the shadow-aspects of existence, now focused on traditional Faustian black magic. As conventional as this may sound for a Black Metal band in 2022, the lyrics again prove the contrary. Just like the accompanying artwork leaves the oridinary imagery and immature asthetics found amongst most contemporaries, the visuals clad „Diablerie“ in timeless solemnity bare of any cliché.
