Hailing from Pori, Finland, Melodic Death Metal masters MORS PRINCIPIUM EST return with their crushing sixth album, “Embers of a Dying World”. Already in the days of their debut Inhumanity (2003) critics were full of praise for the Finns, who still sounded fresh and made no secret of their roots. Comparisons to At The Gates, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, or even the fellow-countrymen Children Of Bodom were common, but MORS PRINCIPIUM EST have never been characterised as just a mere clone of the above mentioned. Even when the follow-up albums The Unborn (2005) and Liberation = termination (2007) were released, the names of the scene pioneers were always at hand, but rather to show that this upcoming band is on a par with them. Since 2007, the band had to deal with several line-up changes, which almost lead to their disbanding, ultimately falling into a long hiatus. Both guitarists had resigned, leaving the band without a songwriter. However, Ville, Teemu and Mikko were determined to carry on the MPE legacy and led an online campaign to search for a new composer/guitarist. In 2011, Andy Gillion from The UK answered the call and became the new songwriter/lead guitarist. In 2012, ...And Death Said Live was recorded and released – a bold statement that the band was not finished yet. The band went on to release Dawn of the 5TH Era in 2014 and return once again more impressive than ever with their Embers of a Dying World album in 2017.
