In their endless quest to push and support current underground acts that perpetuate the odor of vintage death metal, Memento Mori are extremely thrilled to announce a new signing: Formless Oedon, from the Philippines.
Formless Oedon came into being in late 2019 when founder/songwriter Rozel decided to re-ignite an old project that he had envisioned way back in 2014, which he later put on hiatus after facing difficulties in finding dedicated bandmates with the same passion for death metal. The band was originally started as a three-piece act comprised of fellow bandmates Jonathan and Andrei from local thrash metal group Desolator. The band owes much of their style and sound to old Finnish bands such as Demigod, Purtenance, Rippikoulu, and Convulse and other legendary bands including (but not limited to) Incantation, Dead Congregation, and Immolation. An EP titled Deathless Luminosity was recorded in December 2019 and released in March 2020, during the peak of the pandemic in their country. The EP garnered the attention of the underground scene in their home country as well as overseas. With nationwide borders finally relaxing restrictions and live shows slowly returning to life, the band now aims to finally carve their piece of sonic history into the scene by releasing their debut album, actively playing live shows, and taking the underground by storm.
Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length on April 24th, 2023. Further details to follow in the coming months. For more info, consult the links below.
