Mortiis: Født til Å Herske

  1. Født til Å Herske Pt. 1
  2. Født til Å Herske Pt. 2

No, your eyes are not deceiving you, Mortiis has truly reissued his first solo record. Unfortunately the original artwork was lost so Mortiis was forced to release "Født til Å Herske" with new artwork created with the help of Sam Roesenthal. For those of you who have been waiting years to acquire this hard to find release, now you have a chance to acquire it. As with most Mortiis albums, "Født til Å Herske" consists of only a few rather extended pieces instead of a multitude of shorter tracks. As a result this album is intended more for the privacy of your own home rather than in in a club or on the radio. The one thing that strikes me the most about this album is how Mortiis utilizes modern synthesizers and digital recording equipment to mimic classical instrumentation so effectively. The woodwinds, harpsichord, and piano sound amazingly crisp and resilient even though they are generated by a computer, while the percussion maintains the deep bass tones one would not normally expect from an artificial sound source. It just goes to show you how effective a good set of digital equipment really is when placed in the hands of someone who knows how to use it to it's fullest extent.
