2022 release, a re-recorded and reworked collection of Mortem's Slow Death recordings. Before Arcturus there was Mortem. Originally comprised of members now known from such classic bands as Arcturus, Mayhem & Thorns, Mortem was a leading act of the early Norwegian underground metal scene; their 'Slow Death' demo a highly inspirational work of early Norwegian extreme metal. Formed by Marius Vold & Steinar Sverd Johnsen in 1989, Mortem was one of the first black metal bands to crawl out of the woodwork in Norway, releasing the highly coveted and brutal 'Slow Death' demo, with Euronymous & Dead of Mayhem acting as producer and cover artist respectively. After the release of 'Slow Death', the band was laid to rest with members going on to form and feature in acclaimed titans such as Arcturus and Thorns, both of which would become mainstays in the black metal scene and beyond.
