MORDICUS (FINLAND)


Mordicus started off in 1990 and their first two demos "Abominations of the earth" (recorded early 1991) and "Grown under shade of sorrow" (June 1991) contained sick, brutal and fast death metal with catchy guitar melodies and riffs and double vocal delivery. These demos demonstrated the early style of Mordicus which was more grindcore influenced death metal combined with some heavy metal elements. First demo was recorded on four-track recorder and the sound was really awful. The second one ”Grown under shade of sorrow” was a much more better attempt recording wise. It also received critical acclaim by the underground Metal press, tapetraders and any other underground media of the time. Soon after the release Mordicus was approached by several underground record labels and as a result the "Three way dissection" 7"EP was released by the American record label Skindrill Records in 1992 (a sub brand of Seraphic Decay Records). For this release three songs from ”Grown under shade of sorrow” demo were remixed with new vocals by Robert. Their 1992 promo tape brought them to the attention of the French record label Thrash Records, which released the Mordicus' first full length album "Dances from left" in 1993.
