1)
Mortal is a -band founded by Jyro Xhan and Jerome Fontamillas. They also pursued a techno influenced project called Jyradelix in San Diego, California, USA. They were a very influential band in the beginning of the 1990s.

In January of 1992 their debut album, Lusis, was released on Intense Records, the metal-division of Frontline Records. Other bands on the label were Die Happy, Tourniquet, Saviour Machine and Mortification. The style, though, was very different from the other bands. The music consisted mostly of samples and electronic sounds, something unheard of in the Christian world at that time. The album didn’t go unnoticed and won the people’s vote for ‘best new band’ at the CCM Update awards. Lusis was produced by Terry Taylor of Daniel Amos.

Currently, Jerome is a member of Switchfoot. Jyro is working for Crystal Lewis’ label Metro One Music as a producer, engineer, keyboard and guitar player for various bands.

2) A UK Death Metal band from the county of Essex in the UK. Started in 2011 by Callum Montgomery and Jim Edwards. They have released a self produced album called Ortus. http://mortal.bandcamp.com

    Latest on Jyro from LCNA's myspace: "So, here we are in August of 09. We've been working on our disc for literally 18 months, and seem to be up against the odds. Here's a small synopsis of our recent activities. JFM has been writing/producing/recording/consulting/programming/playing with some cool people as of late, as always being brought in to add the special sauce to other artists' albums. Doing the things legendary asian rockers do. Chester has been quite busy, both with Nikka Costa and especially Fiction Family. He also moved to long beach, and got married this last month. This is all in addition to the half dozen albums he's produced since spring 08. Bailey has been up to his usual hired gun thing, backing whomever...wherever...whenever. We PROMISE we haven't forgotten about our band, and you should expect some kind of release in the winter of 09. LCNA."

    I used to listen to Mortal while playing Descent II on my old Acer. Made for a great soundtrack, and made me wish I could find more of their CDs...
