The Awakening begins with the storm…

Totenmesse – meaning ‘requiem’ or ‘mass of the dead’ in German – were formed in 2016, and recorded their first release Demo 2017 a year later. No strangers to extreme metal, the band have honed their craft in groups such as Odraza, MasseMord, Deception and Hell United. This is reflected in their 2018 debut album, “To”, with its majestic, powerful and colossal sound, while the lyrics explore death and how the human mind perceives it. In addition to the seven original tracks, “To” featured a cover of King Crimson’s iconic “20st Century Schizoid Man”. “Fiktionlust” will be the band’s second full-length album and will be released on 3 November 2023 via Pagan Records. 

Totenmesse are:
Mold – Vocals
Stawrogin – Guitars, Bass
Rzulty – Guitars
with guest appearances by Krzysztof Klingbein.
