This is fucking simple – we play old school death metal. Nothing more, nothing less.

Praeteritus is Perfect passive participle of praetereō – Latin language. This is something that already goes to the past. Eteritus is just vario of this Latin word.

We try to play only good concerts, with good bands. This year we have played already 4 gigs with bands like Dead Infection and The Dead Goats. At the concerts we try to do our best to satisfy fans. There is some headbanging, we plays some old school covers. However, we do not use any pyrotechnics or fire.
