Spiritus Mortis Announce New Album ‘The Great Seal’

Finnish heavy metal legends Spiritus Mortis unveil a grand-scale epic of antique doom on their new single “Death’s Charioteer”. Erecting a new monolith in the halls of doom metal history with their fifth album, The Great Seal, Spiritus Mortis certify true classic status as one of the scene’s modern greats.

There are few modern-day bands that can be uttered under the same breath as the giants of traditional doom and heavy metal like Spiritus Mortis. Formed in 1987 as Rigor Mortis, they can firmly attest to having been “the first Finnish doom metal band”, uncovering hallowed ground before the later imitators. Carrying the banner of powerful true metal, the likes of which stands proudly next to the masters such as Dio era Sabbath, Solitude Aeturnus and Trouble, Spiritus Mortis have established a tradition of catchy song-writing and consummate knowledge of sacred riff-craft. The Great Seal is an album, which Spiritus Mortis describes as “a rite of collective suicide and an orgy of self-immolation”, and plumbs the depths of epic sorrow with gargantuan slabs of igneous riffs and emotional vocals.
