MORK have announced a brand new album!
The Norwegian black metal outfit, created by Thomas Eriksen, have announced that they will release their brand new album Eremittens Dal in October through their new label, Peaceville Records. Speaking about signing with Peaceville, Eriksen says, “I remember when making MORK‘s debut album, I originally got the inspiration from visiting DARKTHRONE‘s studio, & the following year I get the honour of being picked out as Fenriz’s BAND of the WEEK, as well as having Nocturno Culto supplying vocals to my second album. Obviously DARKTHRONE has been an important influence, & the fact that Peaceville Records decided to work with MORK and to release the third album, is nothing short of a huge honour and a pillar on my bucket-list. To go from making an album just for fun and being picked up by independent underground labels to then signing with Peaceville is an absolute dream come true.”
The upcoming album was recorded at Rottehullet Studio in Halden, Norway. It was mixed by Freddy Holm at Kleiva Studio & mastered at Enormous Door in the US (DARKTHRONE‘s The Underground Resistance & Arctic Thunder). The album also includes special guest appearances from DIMMU BORGIR‘s Silenoz who contributes vocals on two tracks, plus additional bass parts from 1349‘s Seidemann. Speaking about working with the band, Silenoz says, “MORK caught my attention a couple of years ago and I was immediately drawn to the atmospheric and reclusive soundscapes, enticed by the desolate and solitary approach – true to the old Norwegian Black Metal ways. It was as if I was thrown back in time. So when I got asked to add vocals on two tracks I didn’t hesitate to comply, I just instantly knew I was meant to have a part in it!”
