The Czech existential doom metal band Et Moriemur was founded in February 2008 in Prague.
Featuring ex-members of Czech seminal doom metal acts Dissolving Of Prodigy and Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy and members of fellow doom/black group Self-Hatred, the band to this day released an EP (Lacrimae Rerum, 2009, self-released), its debut full-length album (Cupio Dissolvi, 2011, Parat prod.) and Ex Nihilo In Nihilum (2014, Solitude productions). The long out of print Lacrimae Rerum EP was re-issued in 2015 as a digipack strictly limited to only 100 copies with 2 exclusive bonuses by Russian GS Productions.
The first album received several positive reviews and Et Moriemur ranked second in the 2011 edition of the New Artist of the Year Czech rock/metal Břitva publicists awards, while the second album was voted among the three best Czech metal albums of 2014 in the Czech music awards Anděl issued by the Czech Academy of Popular Music. The band is currently working on its third release due out in 2017.
Et Moriemur also appeared in three compilations – Institut černého kovu, a tribute CD to the Czech black metal legend TÖRR, Doom Metal Front zine compilation “Eastern Doomination” and a tribute album to the Czech doom metal masters Dissolving Of Prodigy.
Et Moriemur is the organizer of Patior Ergo Sum Doom Fest, an annual doom event featuring fellow doom bands from all over Europe. The band supports Svoboda zvířat (a Czech animal rights organization) with regular financial donations.
Heavy Baby Sea Slugs japan tour at 両国SUNRIZE – “Teenage Graveyard Party”
1) King Midas of Shit
2) Teenage Graveyard Party
3) Pit Bait
4) Zero One
US Avant-sludge punkers Heavy Baby Sea Slugs are back with “Teenage Graveyard Party”, a four-song slammer of an EP which is set to be released on January 21st, 2017.
Hailing from the state of Texas, the band will be touring Japan and Taiwan during January 2017.
“Let’s get one thing straight: We’re only writing this because we have to, because we’ve been told it’s the right thing to do, to move on up in the industry. Fuck that shit. We’ve never been the kind of band that does things the right way, and that’s why three and a half years into this ride we still don’t have a goddamned band Facebook or band tweeter. We have better things to do than talk about ourselves. Not doing things the right way means that the Slugs have done it all wrong… right? We spent our time digging for killer riffs, consuming P.B.R. by the gallon, even touring Japan before our home country, all on top of releasing at least an album a year. So far. Do you even know how many amps we’ve had to bury in our quest for eternal tone? Do you wanna see the amplifier graveyard? It’s sick. One could say the Slugs are an avant-garde heavy metal collective, which sounds pretentious ~as fuck~ but is actually closer to the point. Hell sometimes we resemble a gang more than a band. This dude tried to rip us off for some T-shirts once so we showed up at his house and collected. Around that time we were working (or finished?) our first album, a softy we called Evelyn McHale’s Psychedelic Freakout… A macabre reference to a most infamous suicide. Google that shit. Even though we don’t play off it anymore, the Freakout ages like fine wine or acid. After we got over Evelyn we started writing mad riffs and soon enough found ourselves at the house recording a 14-track crusty slab called Fistula Missile. We blew out the mix and never looked back. That album is a prime example of an eclectically lo-fi piece of sludge punk that sounds like crap but beats with a heart of gold. Check out the track 1,000 Dead Hipsters. It’s a favorite. This was the time of the Party-Slugs, when we still got invited to play at peoples’ houses, our shit stacked to the ceiling. The cops made sure that didn’t last long. We don’t play houses anymore… So, feeling unloved, the Slugs retreated back into our den where we concocted our third full length over the transitional period of ’14 to ’15, a decidedly depressing and downright bleak drone affair entitled 1950DA. That’s the name of a real life asteroid with the highest probability of smashing into Earth somewhere around the year 2800. ~Shout-out~. Yadda yadda yadda somewhere along the way we collectivized ourselves and started releasing shit as a label, Heavy Baby Records, putting out CDs and tapes for our friends and scene comrades and yadda yadda yadda the Slugs eventually yielded a 7″ single… Currently we’re following that badboy up with Teenage Graveyard Party, a four-song slammer of an EP that we are pressing onto some sick clear 10″ wax along with a limited run of Japanese-pressing CDs just in time for us to once more ravage the East in January 2017. Thus is the story of the Slug so far.”
