True Norwegian black metallers MORK have released a second single from their upcoming album, Katedralen.
The new track, “Svartmalt” features special guest, DARKTHRONE’s Nocturno Culto and it can be heard below.
MORK mainman Thomas Eriksen comments: “My new single is here. ‘Svartmal’!! This is a rocking black metal track! I’m shutting all the doors, boarding up all the windows and painting it all black! That’s pretty much a direct translation from the song’s Norwegian theme. When Nocturno Culto and I got together in the studio to figure out which of the tracks would fit him best, this one struck hard, it’s a primitive and balls out rocker, we knew this was the one — it had to be ‘Svartmalt.’ The world seems to have gone to shit, so why not paint it black on top. Ugh!”
Following on mercilessly from 2020’s aptly titled Pesta EP, Norwegian act MORK resumes its ascension through the ranks of the Scandinavian black metal scene with the fifth chapter, Katedralen, venturing ever further from the more primal early DARKTHRONE-based foundations, while still fundamentally keeping the grim flame of the old school in its DNA.
Katedralen is undoubtedly MORK’s 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 of groove, harshness, grandiosity, sadness, beauty and power in the process.
Katedralen can be pre-ordered here.
