Mors Principium Est release new single and video “The Lust Called Knowledge”

Finnish melodic death metal force Mors Principium Est release new single and video “The Lust Called Knowledge”, new album “Liberate The Unborn Inhumanity” is out 8th April on AFM Records.

“For Liberate the Unborn Inhumanity”, vocalist Ville Viljanan brought together the original line-up, guitar players and Mors Principium Est co-founders Jori Haukio and Jarko Kokkoo, as well as bass player Teemu Heinola rejoining the band. Together with new drummer Marko Tommila, the new old line-up radiates the power of a real band without compromises. Liberate the Unborn Inhumanity features a finest collection of their first three albums “Inhumanity“ (2003), “The Unborn“ (2005) and “Liberation = Termination“ (2007) plus the second demo “Valley of Sacrifice“ (2001).

The album was entirely re-recorded, mixed and mastered. As the first single releases prove, the direction of Liberate the Unborn Inhumanity is immediatly evident: No drum computer, no needless gimmicks and no experiments, just double riff power and full blast grandeur! Mors Principium Est have unleashed a killer excerpt and a new video for “The Lust Called Knowledge”.

Mors Principium Est have ruled the scene for more than 20 years and know exactly how to deliver melodic death metal matched with the typical Finnish melancholy. The combination of progressive yet memorable structures showcases the band’s incredible talent and balance between complex instrumental parts and goose bumps melodies crowned by Villes harsh vocals. Liberate the Unborn Inhumanity was recorded by the band in the Ansa studios and Joris home studio. The mix was done by Thomas “Plec“ Johannsson (Mayhem, Sorcerer) in the Panic Room studio in Sweden.
