The 3rd album from Mortalicum, titled "Tears from the Grave," will be released via Metal on Metal Records this coming April 25th at the Keep It True festival, which has became a tradition for the Swedish doom rockers (their debut was released at KIT 2010 and the second release came at KIT 2012).
According to the label, "It's their most doomy release with longest and slowest songs, full of soulful melodies, but those who loved their more hard rocking side need not worry, as it's still very much present here - the more upbeat songs have really infectious riffs and just call for headbanging. The album radiates with '70s and '80s warm vibe that will surely please fans of Black Sabbath, Grand Magus, Candlemass, Trouble, Spiritual Beggars, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, and the like..."

The Doommantia Volume 3 compilation has now been posted and is available for streaming and download over on bandcamp. This anthology picks up where its predecessors left off and features twenty bands from the world of doom, drone, stoner, retro and sludge.
This compilation was put together to raise money to benefit Ed Barnard of Doommantia.com. He suffered a heart attack and due to huge medical bills was forced to move back to his native Australia at the end of July. Basically homeless and rebuilding his life from scratch, he has no family to fall back on and cannot work due to severe health issues. A $7 donation gets you these tracks but you can donate more if you have the means to do so.
