Moros Eros was an American alternative rock band from Marietta, Georgia. The band formed under the name In Vitro and released their debut EP I'm Dying But I Still Don't See Anything under that name, only to discover the name was already trademarked by a French band.[1] The band renamed themselves Moros Eros (Moros is Greek for "impending doom" and Eros is the Greek god of love). The band signed to Victory Records. The band's debut album I Saw The Devil Last Night And Now The Sun Shines Bright was released on October 31, 2006,[2][3][4][5][6] with the single "Today Is The Day" soon following. The band played at the 2007 South by Southwest.[7] The group's most recent album, Jealous Me Was Killed By Curiosity, arrived in October 2007.[8][9][10][11]

According to AbsolutePunk.net on April 7, 2008 they have broken up.[12]
