Obitus Vitae is a Black Metal one-man-band formed in Málaga (Spain) by the Brazilian musician Armando Luiz(Guitars & Backing Vocals in Black Metal band Servi Diaboli) 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’ incorporates ambient, doom and traditional black metal elements to create a Black Metal opus. It was released December 4 2013 through CSR.
Obitus Vitae’s influences include the likes of Amen Corner, Bethlehem, Rotting Christ, Dark Fortress and more.
In 2012, OBITUS VITAE recorded four songs for the 5-way split ‘Journey to the End’ (Personal Holocaust, Beyond Life, Triebtat, Werther and Obitus Vitae) which was released March 13 2013 via the label Bleichmond Tonschmiede.
The followup to ‘Olfacit Mortis’, ‘Exspectatio Mortis’ is now available for digital download. The limited edition 6-panel digipak is now available for pre-order and releases October 28 2016. It is limited to 100. Thematically, Obitus Vitae’s second release continues what Armando Luiz started with ‘Olfacit Mortis’: the music and Latin lyrics are suffused with the occult, misanthropy and necromancy.
