Mortuous formed in 2009 from the ashes of Colin Tarvin’s previous project Funerealm in the hope of creating a new Death Metal band. He started writing music in the vein of Incantation, Autopsy, and Viogression with lyrics emphasizing heavily on philosophical views on death and anti-technological themes. Later that year he released the Demo, “Mors Immortalis”, on Skeleton Plague Records which
received praise and recognition throughout the underground Death Metal community. By 2010, Mortuous had a full lineup which included Col Jones and Mike Beams, previously of Exhumed, Al Tarvin-Kibler, and Nick Scarboro. In 2013, Mortuous parted ways with Al and Nick and recruited Clint Roach on Bass. By 2014, Mortuous saw the current lineup formation with the addition of Chad Gailey from Necrot on drums.
In November of 2016, Mortuous went into Earhammer Studios with Greg Wilkinson to record their first Full-Length LP entitled, “Through Wilderness”, which features eight new tracks of total Doom and Death Metal with nods to such bands as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Rottrevore, and diSEMBOWELMENT. “Through Wilderness” was released in June 2018 through Carbonized and Tankcrimes Records in the
United States. Dawnbreed and Extremely Rotten Productions handled the European release respectfully. In September 2018, Mortuous released a split 7” record with Scolex which made its debut at Kill-Town Death Fest VI: The Resurrection! In 2019, Mortuous released a split 7” with Deform and made a few appearances at festivals such as Eternal Warfare, California Deathfest, Kill-Town Death Fest VII, and
Decibel Metal and Beer Fest: Los Angeles! 2020 saw the band make their first ever appearance in Mexico at “Total Death Over Mexico III” in Mexico City. A Demo Compilation CD was also released earlier that year by Carbonized Records containing the band’s long out-of-print demos from 2009 and 2012. In December 2021, Mortuous recorded their second full-length album, “Upon Desolation”, which was released in September 2022 by Carbonized Records in the United States and Extremely Rotten Productions in Europe
