Introduced to main-stream audiences via their early 2004 Candlelight debut, The Work Which Transforms God, and 2005 re-issue of their previous underground catalogue, Memoria Vestusta and Ultima Thulee albums, French extremists Blut Aus Nord finally remove the blackened veil that has possessively covered their new oeuvre, Mort.
A singular composition consisting of eight united chapters, Mort continues the gruesome soundtrack that has quickly become the trio’s acclaimed hallmark. Nearly two years in the making, the album again incorporates the band’s unique guitar playing (layering similar to early Emperor), corrosive rhythm section and bitter vocals. Kerrang says it best when calling the band’s music, “the sound of underground metal's black heart, twisted beyond all recognition."
Formed in 1994, the faceless Blut Aus Nord have enjoyed a steadily increasing worldwide sales and fanbase. Metal Maniacs, Terrorizer,
Kerrang, Decibel and many others applaud the band’s sinister sound, often likened to a metamorphis of Dark Throne, Neurosis and Godflesh.
