Universum are an Australian band from Adelaide. Formed in early 2006, Universum originally were a three-piece before recruiting additional members. Universum’s music is described as a fusion of Scandinavian melodic death metal, modern American metal and progressive rock.

Universum originally burst onto the international metal scene with the release of their debut full length epic ‘Leto Destinatus’ in mid 2008. The critically acclaimed album was mixed and mastered in Sweden by Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios (Soilwork, Opeth, Amon Amarth) and featured artwork by Gustavo Sazes of Abstrata (Nightrage, Firewind, Sonic Syndicate).

Universum have since released the much anticipated album ‘Mortuus Machina’ on 1 January, 2011.
The album was again mixed and mastered in Sweden by Jens Bogren of Fascination Street Studios (Soilwork, Opeth, Amon Amarth) and features artwork by Seth Siro Anton (Kamelot, Septic Flesh, Sybreed).
