2003:
After various tests, Lord of Pestilence become the voice of the band, while the first riffs finally see the light. Strong tensions between members end with the exit Lord Astaroth . After some test with other guitarists, Lord of Pestilence passes to guitar.
2004:
Nurthur enters as bass player and gives new thickness to the music and new ideas to the band, so the band start to develop the first album about "the Black Plague in Italy". From this theme comes the name of the band, Speculum Mortis. very soon it cames out that the sound of keyboard isn't essential to the songwriting, so Agares is thrown out of the band, not last for his false behaviour and attitude. In the same period the collaboration with Nik begins. He is a well skilled keyboard and great expert of medieval history and helped the band to develop ideas about the realization of the passages related both to music and lyric through the deep study of that historical period; in fact the medieval imprint in the music starts to detach the band from what was the 2 year-old initial project. Speculum Mortis decide to use keyboard and classical instruments in specific parts of the concept, such as intro, outro, interludes and ask Nik to gather the essence of the group into parts such as "Vado Mori " the key-piece of the album. They are born besides in this period Speculum Verae Penitence, Macabre Triumph, Livor Mortis and St. Leonardo Fossamala.
