MORTALICUM confirmed for MALTA DOOM METAL festival; “The Endtime Prophecy” CD details

Swedish doomsters MORTALICUM have been confirmed for the 4th edition of prestigious MALTA DOOM METAL festival (,, that will take place on November 2nd and 3rd on this Mediterranean island. They will share the stage with a plethora of national and  international Doom Metal bands, including the recently reformed SORCERER (Sweden), DAWN OF WINTER (Germany), THE BLACK (Italy), SEMLAH (Sweden), FORSAKEN (Malta), HOODED PRIEST (Netherlands), CHILDREN OF DOOM (France), IRON VOID (UK) and FOREST STREAM (Russia), to name but a few.


MORTALICUM from the northern parts of Sweden (Sundsvall) was formed in 2006 by Patrick Backlund, the mastermind behind QUICKSAND DREAM, an epic Heavy Metal band that started out in the late ’80s. In 2010 the band got signed to Metal On Metal Records which released their debut CD “Progress Of Doom” the same year.

“The Endtime Prophecy” is the 2nd full-length album of the band, released by Metal On Metal Records on April 27th this year. MORTALICUM once again proved the quality of Swedish metal, bringing tons of classy and vintage sounding Doom Metal mixed with early ’80s Heavy Metal and ’70s Hard Rock, with emphasis on melody, soulful guitar solos and singing, and massive doomy riffs.

The band’s bass player and composer, Patrick Backlund, prepared a clip for the opening song on the CD, “My Dying Soul” – check it out on YouTube: And here is a short promo clip for the release:
