Storm the Deciblog and stream GLORIA MORTI’s “Josef Fritzl” HERE:
Offers drummer Kauko Kuusisalo about the track, “‘Josef Fritzl’ is one of the shorter songs on Kuebiko, and after short ‘intro’, it gets to the point right away. It is about three minutes of pure aggression with all the ‘classic GLORIA MORTI elements’ — fast blast beats, melodic chorus riff, and relentless vocals. The morbid story behind the lyrics is should also wake some unpleasant feelings in the listener. This song does not let the listener to rest until it is finished.”
Adds guitarist Juho Räihä, “The idea for the song is lifted from a public debate on religion featuring the late great Christopher Hitchens. The premise of the lyrics being that there is a problem when trying to reconcile the existence of evil in the world with the (supposed) existence of an all-knowing, all-powerful and good god. The co-existence of evil and such a god is not logically valid. The Fritzl case is, to me, one of the most blatant underlinings of this in recent history.”
With Kuebiko, GLORIA MORTI is back with another solid slice of confrontational Finnish death metal, the band expertly blending thrash, melodic, and black metal, and surreal atmospheric elements into their sound making for a sonic wrecking-ball reminiscent of such bands as At The Gates, Carcass and Fleshgod Apocalypse. GLORIA MORTI’s fifth studio effort, Kuebiko finds the unit traversing grimmer and dirtier grounds than ever before, both musically and thematically.
Kuebiko will be released on March 18th via Willowtip Records. For preorders visit THIS LOCATION.
