MAVORIM and AD MORTEM to release split album via PURITY THROUGH FIRE - first track revealed



Purity Through   Fire  is proud to present  Iudicium Ultimum , a special split album between   Mavorim   and   Ad Mortem , on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats. The CD and tape versions will be released on October 31st while the vinyl version shall follow later in the year.

Featuring a total of nine songs across 51 minutes,  Iudicium Ultimum  as an apt portrait of nowadays German black metal: proud and pure in its expression, honoring the past whilst not being shackled to it, and evincing a professionalism that doesn't sacrifice true underground spirit. Paradigmatic of this development are   Mavorim , true titans of today's Teutonic black metal scene; meteoric has been their rise the last five years, with two well-received albums via   Purity Through   Fire  amongst a handful of EPs and splits. Mainman Baptist has always had an ear for somber-yet-stirring melodies even when his attack's strict 'n' strident, but with his three epic tracks here (plus intro),   Mavorim   reveal yet more color residing deeply within their black; an almost elegiac aspect arises, a surprising solemnity that nevertheless retains the band's characteristic effervescence.







Although possessing a comparatively sparser discography,   Ad Mortem  are a poignant counterpart for this split. Largely up-tempo, with rhythms spanning gallop and headbang alike, the quartet of   Ad Mortem  evince an undeniable physicality that remains hook-heavy and hummable. Likewise, their execution is seamlessly flowing and even swinging, making their martial thrust all the more mesmerizing. More than that, with a demo and a short split to their name,   Ad Mortem 's more extended contribution here suggests plenty of paths for their future, both triumphant and terror-inducing...

With atmospheric segues bookending both bands' respective halves,  Iudicium Ultimum , functions like a true split  album  rather than a slapdash collection of leftover tracks. More than that, again,   Mavorim  and   Ad Mortem  equally display the new(er) face of Germanic black metal - raise the banners!

Raise the first banner with   Mavorim 's brand-new track "Tod und Teufel"   HERE   at   Purity Through   Fire 's official YouTube channel. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
