MORK PREMIERE NEW VIDEO FOR “ARV”
With Mork’s new album Katedralen due for release on 5th March, the Norwegians have revealed the album’s first video and track “Arv”.
“Finally I am able to reveal the first taste of the new album, ‘Katedralen’. The song “Arv” was the very first track that I both wrote lyrics and put down vocals for, on our new album. It is a very personal track, for sure, a real heavy, slow and groovy piece with melancholic melodies that captures the essence of the atmosphere I was striving for. The video, we created within the majestic and imposing Fredriksen Fortress, which looms above my hometown of Halden.” Thomas Eriksen comments.
Katedralen, the band’s 5th album, is undoubtedly their most accomplished work to date, pushing new creative frontiers with a more dynamic approach to the song composition and an expanded breadth to the riffs and melodies, weaving a new masterpiece, the result, is a true personal work of intense spiritual catharsis from main-man Thomas Eriksen.
‘Katedralen’ was performed and recorded by Eriksen at Likkjelleren Studio; mixed by both him and Freddy Holm at Kleiva Studio, with mastering once more carried out by Jack Control at Enormous Door (Darkthrone). The album also notably includes guest appearances from Nocturno Culto of labelmates Darkthrone, Dolk of fellow countrymen Kampfar, & finally Eero Pöyry of funeral doom masters Skepticism. The suitably stark artwork once again appears courtesy of revered French artist David Thiérrée.
