ET MORIEMUR | EPIGRAMMATA

Et Moriemur (Latin for “And we will die”) is a doom band hailing from Prague, Czech Republic. Since conception in 2008, the group has produced four releases including the latest Epigrammata. Self-described as existentialist doom, this album gives nods to black and death metal accompanied by enchanting atmospheric melodies.

If the haunting whispers don’t send shivers down your spine the Gregorian chants will. This album brings a multitude of melancholic instrumental layers creating a depth not usually found in the realm of doom. Variations in vocals, in both English and Latin, offer a dynamic experience, glimpses of agony through screams followed by perverse hymns created by grief-stricken chants. A highly enjoyable, full-bodied auditory journey lumbering through despair often at funeral pace.

Keeping in line with the other two full lengths and the EP released by the band, Epigrammata is a lonely yet incredible journey facilitated by somber cello, violin, guitar and trombone.
