After a long wait, the second part in Obitus Vitae trilogy, ‘Exspectatio Mortis’, will be released this Summer. More details will be forthcoming shortly.
Obitus Vitae is a Dark Black Metal one-man-band formerly based in Málaga, Spain and now in Hundorp, Norway. Brazilian musician Armando Luiz (Servi Diaboli and Sort Himmel) started the project in the year 2012. Thematically, the music and Latin lyrics are suffused with the occult, misanthropy and necromancy. The debut full-length of ‘Olfacit Mortis’ (released December 4 2013) incorporates ambient, doom, sludge classical and traditional black metal elements to create a Black Metal opus.
And while ‘Exspectatio Mortis’ retains many of the same elements as the first part (‘Olfacit Mortis’), it nevertheless seethes with a compellingly distinctive and fresh way of telling its part of the musical narrative.
