H.L. After my purchase of "The Death of Gaia" I realized that I missed "Mors Viri" and closed this gap. "Mors Viri" is maybe a bit more lively and less dark or doomy as the latest release but features also several traditional doom/ death tracks somewhere between old Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Novembers Doom in terms of atmosphere. Fine! Favorite track: The Wounded And The Dying.

Stefan B Not sure how I missed this band all these years as I love heavy Melodic and well written stuff, like Shape Of Despair. But this album is amazing with Melody, catchiness without being lame and amazing vocals and Musicianship. I know they have been around for a bit, but I hope to see more killer stuff like this. Favorite track: To The Gallows.

When melancholy and sadness drown your soul and there is no salvation.

The new album from Rotterdam, the Netherlands based sons of Doom/Death Officium Triste is nothing short of a soon to be classic
in the genre, competing easily with the classics the Dutch Doom/Death scene released in it’s impressive history!

This is the album we all have been waiting for, the one we always knew Officium Triste would come up with some day and that time is right now.

This is one hell of a truly consistent album that from start to finish convinces and drowns you in a lake of sadness and desperation,
with a small movement in the direction of a bit more gloomy, gothic feel compared to their earlier releases. And it is extremely competent and well crafted, we would dare say it is the highest level within their genre, right up there with their inspirations such as My Dying Bride, Katatonia and Anathema!

Strong melody after melody, well-arranged songs, catchy without commercial overkill, all killer no filler... a flood of quality, a wave of real Metal. The production is so crispy, yet heavy and could not have been better... crank this one up and feel the thunder roar and let yourself drift away.

We had to release this album, in this age of mediocre, wanna be sad albums... this is the real deal. Hammerheart Records will not follow trends, we will only do what we do best, bring you exceptional releases.

Performed and made by veterans of the scene, not cheaply imitating, but crafting a devastating masterpiece, that will make you look for the razorblade to end it all.

After 20 years Officium Triste made their classic, the album that sets new standards for things to come.
