Decibel Magazine is currently streaming Cry Of The Dying World, the impending new full-length from San Diego, California-based death/doom duo MORDOM. The premiere comes in advance of the record’s official release this Friday, December 10th via Transylvanian Recordings.
Comments the band, “Cry Of The Dying World is about corruption and the impact it has had on both humanity and the world. The first half of the album centers around the human directly, addressing lives ruined due to corruption in the medicine and pharmacy (‘Narcosis’) and a society torn apart by corruption in the media (‘Betrayed’). The second half is about the consequences in terms of climate change and destruction, first in the form of in wildfires and bombings (‘The Fire’) and the impending Holocene extinction event (‘The Mausoleum’). We sought to create an album that captured the existential doom of living in this type of world — a dying world crying for mercy.”
Adds Decibel, “…four extended tracks of misery…If you’re looking to get into a dark mood, this’ll take you to where you want to go…”

MORDOM was forged in 2018 by bassist/vocalist Max Hoffman and drummer Nathan Gonzalez. Though Gonzalez didn’t play on the band’s 2020 Eternal Solitude demo — crowned a “grave monument of a demo” by Decibel Magazine for its “original and soul-stirring sound, quite unlike anything we’ve heard before” — Hoffman sought him out specifically to assist in the manifestation of latest offering, Cry Of The Dying World. Together, the pair reworked the band’s sound, dropping guitars entirely and blending Finnish death/doom influences with sludge, crust punk, and post rock. Above all, the pair seeks to create metal that is simultaneously bleak, punishing, and emotionally moving, expressing living in a world being torn apart by hatred, greed, and climate change.
