Amongst other cool merch in the MORTIIS webstore you can find a few posters. This one is a photo I took at the Cold Meat Industry 30 year anniversary festival i Stockholm for about a year ago when he performed the “Era 1 ” set for the first time in ages.
It really does make a great poster:D The “Era 1” show was awesome btw. MORTIIS has done some extensive touring the past year and there´s still concerts coming up if you have missed out. Dates & venues HERE.

Ethereal World Music from Bulgaria.
“IRFAN – a unique mix of hypnotizing melodies and rhythms – an electro-acoustic World Fusion of the music of the Balkans, the Orient and Medieval Europe”

Dark Ambient/Darkwave from Germany.
“For those who don’t want to check Wikipedia: “Apoptose” describes the so called programmed cell death. It simply means that a cell dies when it is damaged or ill. This program works in nearly every living cell except for cancer cell that live on and on. When I was looking for a name for my musical project that was something that came to my mind. I especially love the literally meaning of the Greek word “Apoptosis”. It means leaves falling off trees. I still think that it fits perfectly to the topics and atmosphere of the music”

A slightly longer set in Stockholm. Absolutely amazing performance again!
No clips from the venue but found one from their very first gig at Blekkmetal in Bergen, I was there also, of course :D

The second night, now in Stockholm. Left Gothenburg on an early train with my excellent travelling companions. Got stranded a couple of hours on the Central station before the Norwegians arrived so I could get to the venue with them. First time I went to Slaktkyrkan. The venue opened last february while I was still out of the country and it+s very close to Kraken. I really liked the place! Open courtyard and everything:) Next years Stockholm Slaughter will use both of the venues so it will work out really nice.
And SKOGEN totally ruled again! I do love that band. Great stuff. So for me, no supportbands this weekend. All equally fantastic with their specific own style. Couldn´t get any better:D
And also in Stockholm: not many mobile phones visible in the crowd:D A couple of Official clips below [Nordvis]
Grande Finale of the most excellent evening! “Havenless” as an extra treat with Grutle on iPad :D Great crowd also and very few mobile phones in sight (has that changed in general the past year or so when I´ve been out of the country?) Anyways It´s a good trend. But of course, no video clips to be found from the gigs.
Had so much fun, met so many awesome people including the ones who worked at the venue. The restaurant had an awesome vegetarian lunch buffet btw! So try it out if you ever visit Gothenburg!
Pt. 2 of a brilliant evening! Debut album in making which will be released in 2019 (Season of Mist). I do love the Trelldom, Gorgoroth, God Seed stuff, tho. Hope they still keep at least some of it in their performances in the future.

For some years ago one of Swedens finest (but yet not so well known), GRÁ, supported DARK FUNERAL at Fryshuset, Sthlm and a while after the GRÀ frontman Heljarmadr also started to do the vocals in DARK FUNERAL.
Shitloads of fire this evening:)) Congrats to the 25 Years!!

UNLEASHED ska ge ut en ny platta och kom på att jag fortfarande inte hade den förra som jag plåtade för. Nu har dom bytt skivbolag till Napalm Records, men Nuclear Blast som gav ut Dawn of the Nine skickade vad dom hade så fick en tröja och ett par CD:n med posten:)
Det fattas en och annan platta fortfarande och tror inte att jag nånsin kommer att få tag på dom alla, men då får det vara så.
Fick vinylen hemskickad av Björn på Carnal Records (Tack som fan!!!). Synd att jag inte tog bild innan jag öppnade paketet för den var perfekt paketerad så vinylen inte skulle få fula intryckta hörn på konvolutet. Alltså gott om plats runtomkring och plattan var i prima skick:))
Fantastisk skiva igen från GRÁ och jag har ju hört den ett antal gånger på Spotify, men grymt kul att ha det fysiska exet i sin lilla hand. Bra jobb på omslaget av Axel Torvenius. Bandfotot tog vi i Salem december -17 under lagom mystiska omdtändigheter:).
