Mork - Dypet - LP

  • Description

    The ever-prolific Thomas Eriksen returns with Mork’s sixth studio album following swiftly on the heels of 2021’s ‘Katedralen’ opus. A new highlight of meticulously composed atmospheric & grim yet anthemic darkness, with ‘Dypet’ Mork creates a tapestry of gloom-soaked tension amid the nightmarish soundscapes. At once forlorn yet uplifting ‘Dypet’ marks a natural progression of Eriksen’s ongoing evolution as a songwriter with a continued push for new ideas & sounds, whilst retaining the core essence of Mork’s foundation in ice cold hypnotic black metal.

    The inspiration & concept for the title track itself (& cover art) involves a twist on the Cthulhu Mythos by H.P. Lovecraft; in this instance turned into a Norwegian scenario where there is a cult on the coast that has worshipped “Draugen” (A mythical sea ghost in Norwegian lore) for generations. The rest of the tracks explore themes of death, betrayal, hate, inner demons & misanthropy, all finely woven into the album’s dynamically grim fabric.

    ‘Dypet’ was once more performed, recorded & mixed by Eriksen himself, with engineering assisted by Freddy Holm & with mastering carried out by Jack Control at Enormous Door (Darkthrone). The track ‘Høye Murer’ features a guest vocal appearance by Hjelvik (ex-Kvelertak).

    French artist David Thiérrée also returns with a new masterpiece of truly befitting artwork, inspired by the aforementioned “Draugen/Cthulhu” theme.

    Mork was created by Thomas Eriksen in 2004 & was primarily a side-project from inception until the debut album, ‘Isebakke’, in 2013. Since then, with a constant flow of releases & live work, 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.

    This edition of 'Dypet' is presented on black vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
