Today Australia’s melodic death metal heavyweights ‘UNIVERSUM’ are announcing the world wide web launch of their new album MORTUUS MACHINA.
A nitro fuelled collection of crushing riffs, heavy rhythms, catchy melodies and decimating vocals, the album also features a swag of guest appearances including that of vocalist Christian Älvestam (ex Scar Symmetry, Solution .45), guitarist Ola Frenning (ex Soilwork), and Nightrage axe men Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck.
Guitarist and producer for UNIVERSUM, Stephen Murphy comments: “The band is very pleased with MORTUUS MACHINA. We believe this album accurately quantifies the inter-dimensional progression the band has made since last album. From composition and performance to production we are satisfied that the album represents a significant step up for us. We are also tremendously pleased to have worked with the awesome guest musicians that have appeared on this album, the performances are exceptional!”
In the 12 months since the release of their debut album ‘LETO DESTINATUS’, UNIVERSUM have made a major impact both in Australia and internationally, receiving widespread acclaim from the media and their ever growing legion of fans. The success of the debut album together with live performances alongside international big guns ‘Dragonforce’ (Australian national tour), ‘Soilwork’ and ‘Cradle of Filth’, a string of endorsements and a very well received video clip has seen UNIVERSUM quickly become regarded as one of Australia’s premier melodic death metal acts.
