- Mories, the evil mastermind behind such pseudonyms as Gnaw Their Tongues, Aderlating, De Magia Verterum, has worked the 10.000 hours on his music (probably twice). The time you need to get really good at something according to Malcolm Gladwell. And the light swallowed everything is the culmination of everything he has done in the last 10 years.
SEIROM is about ‘beauty’ and melancholy, the more beautiful aspects of life.
SEIROM is about personal expression without boundaries, internal or external.
SEIROM is about grand bombastic melody filtered through noise and black metal aesthetics. The marriage of wedding bells to blastbeats.
About a certain feeling…a longing lost long ago.
SEIROM is M.C De Jong, mastermind of Gnaw Their Tongues, ADERLATING and others, a stalwart of bleak and desolate music for many years. SEIROM sees a different side of De Jong’s musical output, an outpouring of glorious light
And the light swallowed everything is Seirom’s 2nd album after 1973, released on Aurora Borealis-label in 2012.
The album is available now on vinyl and cd in the Burning World records webshop.
