Morito Ergo Sum, Latin for I Die, Therefore I Am, are a Swedish doom band formed by Paulo Cito (originally from Brazil) and Walter Basile (originally from Italy).They sent me a copy of their demo and it’s been on repeat all day.
They play a doom that’s heavy, almost stiflingly so, but instead of death growls Walter sings in a very melodic, ghostly voice. They remind me of newer My Dying Bride, with the very organic guitars and violin, and the heaviness of The 11th Hour’s Burden of Grief album.
In other words, it’s awesome stuff; very powerful, and I recommend you check Morito Ergo Sum out.
8.5 out of 10.
