The band had been on hiatus since July of 2013. More details are around the return, as well as the release date, are expected soon.
Born from the creative mind of rhythm guitarist David Paquette, Mortor began as a solo project that soon turned into a full-fledged band following Paquette’s move from Montreal to Ottawa.
Founded in 2008, Mortor began sculpting and fine-tuning their metal sound while writing and playing live shows with one goal in mind: to bombard the world of extreme metal with their fresh, raw sound.
To date, the band has released two albums, ‘Metal Ride’ (2010) and Shoot ‘em Up (2012). A forthcoming record, ‘Burn up the Dead’, is currently under production with a new lineup.
