Indonesian band Vox Mortis mark their presence in the extreme music scene by unleashing first two songs, “Primata Durjana” and “Forever No To Dog Meat”. Vox Mortis formed by multidisciplinary musicians such as Doni Herdaru Tona (Funeral Inception), Achmad Mustaid (Vomitology), and Donirro (Last Blood) to raise awareness about animal welfare under the banner of death metal. The band takes music as their medium for propaganda as it works universally.
“We focus on the least protected domestic animals: cats and dogs. Some people would agree if the battle is not only about war but also through diplomacy. Meanwhile, we’re ready to shed our blood, diplomacy is also important. Vox Mortis tries to embody the two sides of it,” said Doni who is also the founder of Animal Defenders Indonesia (More info HERE).
Vox Mortis delivers a typical style of death metal with a progressive chord twist, intense blast beat, and raging growl vocals. They packed up a song with irony and sang it full of wrath. The composition was made to blend with some effects to create an epic atmosphere.
The band intensively produced their material and recording since the Covid-19 pandemic started to spread to the whole country. This session took place at Rsharsh Leonard’s Tonebetter Soundlab, Indonesia.
Vox Mortis planned to release their debut album in the near future. They commit to keeping agitation and propaganda for animal welfare as long as it’s needed.
