Morta Skuld

MORTA SKULD’S REMASTERED DEBUT, ‘DYING REMAINS’, OUT NOW

Reactivated US death metallers Morta Skuld’s classic 1993 debut opus, ‘Dying Remains’, has been reissued by Peaceville Records. This edition, marking 20 years since its initial release, has been fully remastered with the process overseen by the band, & the expanded booklet features additional content including rare/previously unseen photos.

‘Dying Remains’ can be ordered from HERE.

Morta Skuld formed in Milwaukee in 1990, going on to release three albums on Peaceville Records (initially via legendary sub-label Deaf Records) in the early-mid 90’s. The band brought a refreshing blend of heavy & brutal death & doom along with more atmospheric & melodic elements instead of straight forward fast & brutal death metal releases prevalent in the US scene at the time, an element which helped to distinguish them from many of their peers. Morta Skuld were highly acclaimed & played with such bands Obituary, Death, Deicide, Napalm Death, Fear Factory, and Cannibal Corpse.

“We are excited to announce that our first album "Dying Remains"  will be available through our original  label Peaceville. It's been 20 years since it first was released, and  after listening to the music and reliving the moment we had to start re-learning some of those songs and to celebrate what we have recorded.  So it was a treat for us to re-master this album that was such a paramount time in our lives. I hope the fans enjoy this as much as we have and thanks to the label for helping us in this venture”

Gehenna

'WW' vinyl release coming November 11th.

'WW', Gehenna's ferocious Norwegian black metal assault will be released on 180gm black vinyl on November 11th, & can now be pre-ordered HERE.
"WW" was Gehenna's sixth album, originally released in 2005, and was notable for the appearance of Frost from Satyricon on drums. The album saw a stripped-down approach to writing compared to some of their previous works, with these primitive black metal tracks exuding a dark, cold, yet brutal atmosphere, written by co-founding member Sanrabb, with the lyrics based around themes of war.
