Limited colored vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. Melodic death metal masters Mors Principium Est return with their crushing sixth album, Embers Of A Dying World, retaining their unique sound. Taking a look at the career of Mors Principium Est so far shows that the band easily attracted attention with each album. 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 characterized 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 press were ecstatic. This positive response helped to build a loyal fan base and establish the band internationally. Since 2007, the band had to deal with several line-up changes, which almost lead to their disbanding, ultimately falling into a long hiatus. 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 United Kingdom answered the call and became the new songwriter/lead guitarist from over 200 applicants. Six months later, Andhe Chandler from New Zealand joined as a second guitarist. With this new line-up,... and Death Said Live was recorded and released in 2012 - a bold statement that the band was not finished yet.
