Biography

Pori, Finland (1999 – present)

Mors Principium Est is a melodic death metal band from Pori, Finland.

In the beginning, back in the year 1999 in Pori, Finland, Mors Principium Est was established by the three founding members Jori, Jarkko and Toni. Percussion instruments were missing, but later in the same year Mikko joined the band to play the drums. Jori was playing lead guitar and vocals, Jarkko guitar and Toni keyboards. The band played for a while with this set, but in the beginning of year 2000 Jori got tired of singing and wanted to concentrate only in guitar. A new singer was thus needed. Meanwhile Ville Viljanen had just left his old band and was looking for something new. He contacted the band and after an audition he became the new vocalist.

The first demo was made without a bass-player, and when Listenable Records expressed interest in the band, it became neccessary to find someone able to fulfill that role. In the year 2001 Teemu joined the band as the bass-player. Two more demos and few gigs were made and finally the hard work got rewarded. 2002 Listenable Records offered contract and the band signed a contract for 3 albums.

The debut album “Inhumanity” was recorded & mixed by Ahti Kortelainen in Finland at Tico-Tico Studios, in December 2002 and mastered at Finnvox Studios, in January 2003. Album was released at spring 2003.

    The new album is probably the best classic sounding melodeath of 2014, but the style sounds a bit dated nonetheless compared to some of the melodic-edged tech-death that came out last year (like Black Crown Initiate for example).

    One of the very few bands that fail to produce anything bad, also the "studio diaries" were rather hilarious to watch :)

    I've been listening to Dawn Of The 5th Era since yesterday! Pretty strong riffs. Ville's vocals are great as always. ♥ I'm loving it. :D

    I'd say it's yet another solid offering from MPE. Nothing stellar but nothing terrible as well. And there surely are some great highlights like We Are the Sleep or Wrath of Indra. Also they fixed the compressed production of the previous album which is also a good thing.

    Sounds like mikael stanne did a little guest vocals in The Forsaken at the 3:50 mark

    As far as this band and this year is concerned, DotFE is going to be difficult to top.

    After multiple listens I would rate this album a 5/10. There are many good ideas but they get watered down in a pool of mediocrity. Overall it lacks a clear emotional presence and kick, plus most of the vocal lines are way too weak to really stick.
