Mortician is a deathgrind band from Yonkers, New York founded in 1989.[1] They have released most of their albums since the House by the Cemetery EP on Relapse Records but have released their latest album on their own label, Mortician Records. They have toured several times through America and Europe. The band is heavily inspired by horror movies, which is expressed in the lyrics, the artwork, and the use of samples throughout their discography.


Mortician was formed in 1989 under the name Casket. The band's name was later changed to Mortician after writing their first song, "Mortician".[2]

The band began using a drum machine after original drummer Matt Sicher was dismissed. Sam Inzerra has been their official drummer since 2003.
