"With this new album Officium Triste have broken new ground with their songwriting both melodically and emotionally. Deep, haunting, heavy & beautiful. Perfect doom metal!"
Stuart Prickett (The Slow Death/Mournful Congregation)
“On ‘Mors Viri’ more than ever Officium Triste attain a perfect balance between crushing heaviness and delicate beauty. The 8 songs on the album weave a mesmerizing spell of sadness with gorgeous melodies and evocative lyrics, no doom fan will be disappointed!”
Ed Warby (Hail Of Bullets/The 11th Hour)
"With ‘Mors Viri’ it is clear that Officium Triste have delivered their greatest expressions so far; it is truly a journey that traverses everything from the sublime to the chilling and transcends the boundaries of death/doom without betraying their past whilst moving forward melodically and compositionally. I'll state without fear that ‘Mors Viri’ is one of the greatest albums of this year and the sound of a veteran band evolved into an entity where every component encourages and elevates the whole."
Tom Phillips (While Heaven Wept)
“Officium Triste have nothing to prove to anyone but themselves. ‘Mors Viri’ sees the guys sticking firmly to their musical guns, and with arguably the best arsenal in all of the melodic doom/death cannon, why wouldn't they? This album sounds like Officium Triste always threatened to, there's a heaviness of tone, a soaring clarity that coupled with Officium Triste patented songwriting, makes ‘Mors Viri’ the high-water mark of their career, and an album that makes you remember exactly why we fell in love with this genre of music in the first place.”
Brendan Roche (Mourning Beloveth)
