Mork 'Det Svarte Juv' LP
Mork was created by Thomas Eriksen in 2004 & was primarily a side-project
from inception until the debut album, ‘Isebakke’, in 2013. Since then the band
has rightly earned their accolade as one of the top Norwegian black metal acts
of recent years, receiving strong endorsements from their peers, as well as
notable guest appearances from members of Darkthrone, Dimmu Borgir &
1349 on studio releases.
Now, following on from their 2017 debut for Peaceville Records, ‘Eremittens
Dal’, which firmly established the band as serious contenders in the scene,
Mork returns with a continuation of dark, spell-binding, yet ever evolving black
metal in the shape of ‘Det Svarte Juv’. Cold and atmospheric, raw and haunting,
this new opus marks a new highpoint for the band with a journey through ten
unhallowed soundscapes, covering classic black metal, black and roll, doom, &
a large dose of melancholy, as well as suggesting masters of the genre such as
Darkthrone & Burzum.
Conceived during a period of personal dark tribulations, & including themes of
deep hate & anger, but also strength & self-belief, ‘Det Svarte Juv’ was recorded
and performed by Eriksen, & once again mastered by Jack Control at Enormous
Door (Darkthrone). The artwork for ‘Det Svarte Juv’ comes courtesy of French
artist, David Thiérrée (Behemoth), pefectly portraying the final leap from the edge into endless darkness.
