Today, Nuclear War Now! Productions sets March 15th, 2020 as the release date for SALTAS‘ highly anticipated debut album “Mors Salis: Opus I”.
After releasing two demos, “Currents” and “Parasites”, in 2018, Sweden’s SALTAS have spent the last year writing and recording material. SALTAS is comprised of just two members, guitarist N.R. (Runemagick and The Funeral Orchestra, among others) and drummer C.J. (known for his work in Irkallian Oracle).
The duo’s music is multi-dimensional and dense, conjuring a deathlike atmosphere. This album is more than metal. The music is ceremonial and trancelike, an arcane death ritual in which unconventional elements are utilized in the service of creating a comprehensive sonic environment. This is not meant to suggest that the album is devoid of riffs or structure. At its core, “Mors Salis: Opus I” is a highly composed and coordinated work of death doom, but SALTAS do not reflexively hew to the line of tradition. They prefer instead to explore the esoteric regions beyond.
