Biography

There are at least 7 bands with the name Mortem.

(1) Mortem hails from Lima, Peru. They formed back in 1986 by brothers Alvaro Amduscias (drums/vocals) and Fernán Nebiros (all guitars) Through the years and having very little support from the worldwide scene as a result of being from a Southamerican country and after countless line-up changes, they recorded 4 demos but still remained almost unknown to the rest of the world, where only few people and zines got to listen to these tapes. But from these few the response was always the same: they were marvelled by the spirit Mortem’s music transmitted. They were even hailed by some as an “important piece of Southamerica’s Underground Metal Scene History”. These remarks caught the attention of a peruvian label that released their debut album called “Demon Tales”, then reissued under the German label Merciless Records, which signed the band for a 2 record deal.

In 1998 the band released their second full-length album called “The Devil Speaks in Tongues” which got only excellent reviews in the underground metal press worldwide.

In the year 2000 Mortem proudly present their 3rd opus: “Decomposed By Possession” under Merciless Records, a 9 track Death Metal assault (+ 2 covers) that shows the band is there to prove Extreme Metal is far from being dead. Refreshing from the beginning to the end, this album explores all the possibilities of their genre without losing their authenticity for a second, nor their devotion to the occult. Extreme heaviness, mid tempos & corpsegrinding speed. This is a true lesson in Extreme Metal and a must for everyone who claims to be a true metaller. Music played in the most authentic Metal tradition.

    @dark_wisdom: I say that Mortem is Black Metal, because they themselves are considered way since the eighties with Hastur.

    @DethGatling Except that Mortem from peru is by no means Black Metal. It's pure old-school death metal in the vein of Morbid Angel, Autopsy And Possessed. I wonder why there are people out there who still confuse Metal with Satanic Lyrics With Black Metal.

    There is a very serious streaky bands Mortem, I think the only cult that deveria to be here would be the country of Peru Mortem, created in 1986, pure black metal from South America.
