American Heavy Metal band Mortifex is the brainchild of vocalist Carl Crosswhite... aka CC Rock, aka Skull DJ.
Mortifex was formed with one goal in mind, to produce an amazing Heavy Metal album... Mission accomplished!
Forged in the fires of Priest, Sabbath, and Maiden... Cast in the vein of Anthrax, Testament, and Slayer... Then honed and polished, as if by the metal gods themselves, into one of the most original sounding Heavy Metal band to emerge in years! The Mortifex eight-song self-titled debut release is nothing less than a true instant metal classic. With its relentlessly tight, pounding thrash drums, soaring guitar riffs, intense leads, epic lyrics, original vocals, earth-shattering bass, and meticulous production. Each song comes complete with its own HD lyric video too. The album features:
Carl Crosswhite-Vocals/Drums/Guitar Arrangements (TALONZ FURY, TECHNICAL ECSTASY, DAMAGE INC), Gregg Carey-Guitars (AUDIOVANGELIST, INDUSTRIAL CORRUPTION UNIT), Oscar Rangel-Bass (ANNIHILATOR, OPERUS), Josh Seguin-Lead Guitar
(PDP, MUTE THE SAINT), Greg Harrison-Lead Guitar (Hed PE, PDP), and was engineered and co-produced by
Chris "Wizard" Collier at CMC21 Productions (KORN, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, METAL CHURCH, FEAR FACTORY, PRONG).
The band logo, album artwork, and HD lyric videos were created by Andy Pilkington at Very Metal Art in London.
We just past our one-year anniversary since the debut of the album, and are overwhelmed with the response we have received. Including some great reviews, worldwide radio airplay, and we were just voted one of the "BEST HEAVY METAL ALBUMS of 2019" at several Heavy Metal magazines and webzines. We also reached #40 on the iTunes TOP 100 ALBUMS chart in Belgium. Mortifex would like to send A HUGE THANK YOU to all the Metalheads, fans, Metal magazines and radio stations around the world who have supported us on this Metal Mission.
We have already begun writing new songs for the next album too, due out in 2020.
