SPECIAL LP/7” VINYL EDITION OF THE LEGENDARY MORTEM ‘SLOW DEATH’ RECORDINGS, FULLY RE-RECORDED & REWORKED INCLUDING EXTRA TRACKS, PLUS THE ORIGINAL 1989 DEMO ITSELF. INCLUDES BOOKLET WITH EXTENDED BAND HISTORY & RARE IMAGES.

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 & brutal ‘Slow Death’ demo, with Euronymous & Dead of Mayhem acting as producer & cover artist respectively. After the release of ‘Slow Death’, the band was laid to rest with members going on to form & feature in acclaimed titans such as Arcturus & Thorns, both of which would become mainstays in the black metal scene & beyond.

This special release of ‘Slow Death’ contains the tracks newly recorded & reworked in a style more akin to the recent ‘Ravnsvart’ album material, plus also includes the legendary pioneering 1989 demo itself, with a fresh transfer from a new tape source. The new recordings also include a rendition of the old Mortem track ‘Satanas’, plus a cover of ‘Likferd’ (Funeral Fog) by Mayhem, this time sung in Norwegian. Joining the original line-up of Marius, Steinar & Hellhammer is Tor Seidemann of 1349 on bass guitar.

Presented as a special LP/7” package, with the demo presented on 7” vinyl format as it appeared originally. The package also includes a four-page booklet with an extended biography on the history of the band, plus rare & unseen images.
