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.
