Et Mors Is:
Zakir Suleri (Torvus, Desolate Cemetery) - Guitar, Organ Pedals, and Vocals
Albert Alisuag (Surrogate Prey, Religious Nightmare) - Drums and Vocals.
Et Mors formed in November 2017 in a basement in Wheaton, MD a month before their first show; when guitarist/vocalist Zak Suleri contacted 4 like-minded friends with the intention of playing slow, soul crushing music. Drummer, Albert Alisuag, had previously played guitar in the first Filipino Sludge Metal band, Surrogate Prey. With this 4 piece lineup, the band played the DC metal circuit, & did a 6 day tour of the south with Nuclear Tomb. They released a series of demos and a single before releasing their first full length album, Lux In Morte, in 2019.
That same year, Et Mors parted ways with their bassist and keyboardist. Albert convinced Zak to keep things going with just the two of them, and they decided to remain a 2 piece instead of finding other members. Shortly after the decision was made, Et Mors released their first single with the new, solidified lineup; following it up with their Tombswayer EP later in the year. They completed a 19-day tour in support of Tombswayer in October 2019 and began working on their second full-length album in early 2020 before the global pandemic put an immediate halt on their writing.
Not being able to sit still for long, the band began writing and rehearsing again following Zak's relocation to Arlington, VA. They loosely describe themselves as Doom Metal, but Psychedelic Rock, Post-Punk, and Death Metal influence their sound as well. Et Mors pushes genre and live performance boundaries, making every set unique by improvising often.
They just finished recording for their next release, Lifeless Grey, which releases on December 16th 2022.
