Spiritus Mortis are a doom metal band originating from Alavus, Finland.
Forming initially in 1987 as Rigor Mortis and adopting the Spiritus Mortis name in the summer of 1988 they are notable as Finland's first doom metal band. With the Maijala brothers as the founding and consistent core members the band established a doom tone of growling bass, massive guitars and thundering drums. The band derived lyrics based in death and the esoteric, common in the genre.
The band's early years comprised entirely of recording demos and attaining a cult following in the underground doom scene, before finally releasing their first studio album in 2004. The band has since released three more studio albums and done a handful of tours, still remaining active while many of their contemporaries and kindred spirits have come and gone.
