70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Fourth Studio Album "Eyes Of The Demon" Released By Mortalicum

Swedish doom rockers Mortalicum released the fourth studio album "Eyes of the Demon" today via Metal on Metal Records. The new album proves their quality and consistency in the style blending doom, early '80s heavy metal and '70s hard rock.

The album's artwork - shown below - contains a fragment of the "Lucifer" artwork by Francesco Scaramuzza, an Italian artist from the XIX century, known for his illustrations for Dante's "Divine Comedy."

Metal On Metal Records commented on the album: "They definitely have a knack for memorable melodies, groovy riffs and damn fine guitar solos, and they perform with natural ease and finesse. As always with Mortalicum, the production is one of the brightest points - nice organic sound that is like a balm for the ears of those who are fed up with modern plastic production. For these guys it's not the image but only the music that matters, and when you hear it, it's very clear it's coming straight from their hearts. They give a nod musically toward BLACK SABBATH, GRAND MAGUS, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS, RAINBOW, TROUBLE, DEEP PURPLE, THIN LIZZY, CANDLEMASS or SAMSON, but at the same time they have the ability to put their own identity to their songs."
