MORDATORIUM

MORDATORIUMBegun as a hobby project by guitarist/vocalist Andrew Oosterbaan in 2007, Mordatorium was realized as a full band in late 2014. Comprised of several members from experienced local acts, and with a handful of releases (consisting of only Oosterbaan and a drum machine) providing a wealth of material to perform, the newly formed Mordatorium quickly took to playing out around the Chicago metal scene.

The band soon set to remixing and re-releasing Oosterbaan’s last solo effort, Raw, in 2015 – an album inspired by tales of murder and criminal psychology that make up the bulk of the band’s live shows. The band then set to writing a follow up, continuing to move away from the more melodic and varied early material and towards a more stripped down and focused sound inspired by early 90′s death metal acts.

After splitting with longtime bassist Nigel Bravo, core members Oosterbaan and drummer Pearl Kacew constructed a home studio and set to work finalizing their next album, entitled Obsessed With Death in the fall of 2016. With new bassist Jon Corston completing the lineup, Mordatorium now prepares to unleash their next set of songs upon all those who crave rotten death metal.
