The Biography

Norwegian Alternative Metallers MADDER MORTEM have started a crowdfunging campaign for celebrating 20 years since the band’s first release, ‘Mercury’ and they wish to celebrate the event with a uniqe re-releae and a really special live show. The band is also releasing a new album on September 21st, via Dark Essence Records. Their seventh full-length album is called “Marrow” and thei have released already a first single, itled “Moonlight Over Silver White” the track is, according to the band, “the essence of what Madder Mortem is about. The contrasts between the gentle and the brutal, the chugging grooviness of the guitars in counterpoint to the soaring arpeggios of the vocals, and the wide range of musical influences knit together in a damn strong, heavy song. The lyrics are a tale of the loneliness of a forest in winter, walking lost and small between the downy snow and the glaring stars”.

“Marrow” sees MADDER MORTEM hungrier and heavier than ever before.  The eleven-track album is complex, covering a wide variety of genres and sounds that range from moments of folk/prog to avant-garde.  From delicate ballads to harsh metal. Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s dynamic and immensely powerful vocals, are, as always, at the fore on an album that is more doomy  than its predecessor “Red in Tooth and Claw”, as well as being at times both heavier, and catchier.

Set for release on Dark Essence Records on the 21st September, “Marrow” is about “Sticking to the essence of yourself.  Your ideas, your thoughts, your values”.  It was produced by BP M. Kirkevaag and mastered by Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid.

With artwork by the legendary artist Thore Hansen, “Marrow” will be available in Digipak CD, Digital, and Limited Edition Green Vinyl Gatefold LP formats.
