Finland's most ancient purveyors of Doom Metal, Spiritus Mortis, are back with a vengeance! Seven years have passed since their previous offering The God Behind The God, also their first featuring ex-Reverend Bizarre vocalist Albert Witchfinder. The fourth album The Year Is One is a mirror to your childhood's occult fantasies. It is what you thought you heard when listening to your favorite headbanging music – even though those bands actually sang about driving fast cars, sex and drugs, whereas Spiritus Mortis' material really does deal with black magic and necrophilia. It is as heavy and evil as one can get without slipping away from the world of pure old school heavy metal.
