Phildalephia progressive power metal outfit MORTANIUS share news about their debut album “Till Death Do Us Part” is now released on Rockshots Records It follows EPs ‘A Voice From Beyond’ (2016), ‘Savage Garden’ (2015), and ‘Ethereal Waltz’ (2014).
MORTANIUS, a progressive power metal band with symphonic and neo-classical elements was formed in 2013 by ex-Outlander vocalist Lucas Flocco and drummer Victor Cardone who were joined by guitarist Mike Gissi and bassist Jesse Shaw. From 2014 to 2016, the band recorded 3 EPs, each one steadily increasing the band’s online presence and fan base. In 2016, after the release of their third and most successful EP at the time, “A Voice From Beyond”, drummer Victor Cardone departed from the band.
A year later in 2017, MORTANIUS returned to the studio to create their first full-length album, “Till Death Do Us Part”. Ollie Bernstein (Ousiodes) recorded all lead guitars on the album, while AJ Larsen (of Madison Rising, Vicious) handled rhythm guitar duties. MORTANIUS also reached out to renowned power metal singers, Leo Figaro (Minstrelix, Dragon Guardian) and Jonas Heidgert (Dragonland) to provide guest vocals. “Till Death Do Us Part” featured the longest production cycle out of any of MORTANIUS‘ previous releases, finally wrapping up production a year later, in the fall of 2018. This album features MORTANIUS‘ most fully fleshed out and dynamic compositions, tightest performances, and highest quality production to date.
Vocalist Lucas Flocco comments:
“The album features a mixture of progressive and power metal. The songs all have melodic vocals that sing catchy lines. Choirs and harmonized vocals are featured heavily. Lead guitars shred fast and harmonized beautifully with each other, and the rhythm guitars are tight and intricate. Keyboards play an integral part to the sound of the album, providing atmospheric flavour and sometimes carrying the main melodies.”
What the press is saying:
“Mortanius is a solid band with a versatile vocalist and meshes many cool sounds together. The modern progressive bands tend to be kookier, and also heavier for the most part. They blend in the classic prog metal sounds that give them that majestic sound they’re achieving with heavily layered synthesizer and keyboard tracks as well. It’s a phenomenal album, pick it up when it comes out!” – Technical Music Review
“All in all, there is a lot to like about Till Death Do Us Part. The musicians involved are all very talented, the vocals are excellent and quirky enough to stand out, and there are a lot of memorable moments throughout.” – Noizze UK
