Mork – Eremittens Dal
The 2017 studio album from one of Norway’s most significant Black Metal acts of recent times. Featuring guest appearances from Dimmu Borgir’s Silenoz and 1349’s Seidemann. Primarily inspired by the works of Darkthrone & Burzum, Mork’s third album Eremittens Dal stands as a tribute to the spirit of old-school Norwegian Black Metal. Raw production and ice-cold riffs combine with the band's dynamic and atmospheric twists and the album effortlessly alternates between the ferocious and the melancholy. Covering themes of hate, death, seclusion and misanthropy, both lyrically and in the way that a one-man-band makes music in solitude, the music is perfectly fitting of the title (translated as Valley Of The Hermit). The suitably grim pencil cover art comes courtesy of Jannicke Wiese-Hansen, who famously made artwork for early Burzum and Satyricon releases. Having featured guest vocals from Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto on its previous album, Eremittens Dal includes special guest appearances from Dimmu Borgir's Silenoz who contributes vocals on two tracks, plus additional bass parts from 1349's Seidemann.
