CODEX MORTIS is a Dutch Black Death Metal band with explosive and hypnotic skull-crushing music that will haunt you into the afterlife. Incorporating the influences of the 90s, Codex Mortis crafts a sonic landscape characterized by ferocious speed and an abyssal depth, with each arrangement a relentless devouring sound. Born in 2017, within the darkened heart of Amersfoort, The Netherlands, Codex Mortis embarked on its journey. Their inaugural full-length opus, “What Befalls of Tainted Souls,” materialized in April 2021 under the auspices of Vidar Records, marking a significant milestone in their sonic evolution. Gazing into the future, the band stands on the precipice of a new era. The imminent arrival of their second full-length album, slated for release in 2024, under the banner of Black Lion Records in Sweden, foretells a continuation of their macabre saga. As the ink of their musical pact dries, Codex Mortis prepares to beckon listeners again into their realm, a shadowed dominion where the echoes of death and transcendence intertwine.
