|Funeral Doom with clean vocals; you dreamt of it, Morito Ergo Sum made it
|Hailing from Sweden and Italy, Morito Ergo Sum is a duet bringing you a rather
good mix of Funeral Doom and the kind of romantic Doom Death that My Dying
Bride made famous. While on a pure musical ground, nothing new is to be
found under the tomb, itís on the vocal side that lies the best idea: only clear
voice is used. I donít think I have ever heard such a combination: a clear
wailing voice topping Funeral Doom all along. Itís really well done moreover.
The melodic lines of drummer Walter Basile (known to be part of bands as diverse as Brutal Death with Mournful or Black Metal with Sunrise) are absolutely perfect and back up in a good way the bandís simple music. For Morito Ergo Sum belong to the part of the Funeral scene that doesnít like overwhelming orchestrations made of keyboards and violinsÖ Their sound could be compared to Runemagick or The Funeral OrchestraĎs one improved by a nice romantic scent coming right from MDBís íTurn Loose The Swaní.
The demo only lasts 17 minutes, but those minutes are so delightfully mortuary that you end up thinking that dark romanticism in Doom still has a long way to go. Since on top of it, that demo is given as free download on the bandís MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/moritoergosumband), you really have no reason not to let you tempted.
