Moribund Records has reissued the first Mortualia CD; which I have not heard before. I was quite surprised to note that they have released two albums after this in 2010. Mortualia, originally issued in 2007, features Shatraug, whose guitars have been on everything from Horna to Behexen, from Sargeist to Drowning the Light and
all ports between.
The opening track, “The Blue Silence”, takes us to the most depressive parts of the world and this can be understood by fans that feel and connect with the depressive side of black metal. It starts pretty slowly with a Burzum kind of feel. The drumming is a snail pace while the vocal is more of a combination of shrieks and screams, like somebody screaming in the deep forest. It is a 17 min track with not much of variation; but, personally who

be implemented with proper execution and Shatraug has done this quite well. “In Bleak Loneliness” starts with a grim guitar tone and a distant scream which is really good to hear. This track is again rather slow and it goes on for 14 min with very few variations in between, but the pace is well maintained throughout. The drumming is again slow without many changes.
Though all the tracks are slow; each one of them is different in terms of guitar style and the tracks are not identical, which is simply amazing. It is difficult to pinpoint one stand out track as
all the tracks are monumental. The production is apt to this style and bears no complaints.
Mortualia, the one-man side project of Shatraug, wisely abandons the dank dungeons for a bleak wintery landscape, delivered through five tracks in over 70 minutes. Yes…this is one of those albums which is sure to succeed despite its repetitious nature and length, simply because the journey is so impressive.
Overall it is an amazing album and it is a must for all those black metal fans!
