To be released by NWN in late 2011.






Statement from Mordor:

Quote:
When in 2009 Bunkur proposed us to make a cover of a song from an old metal band for a split CD, we chose to pay homage to Venom, which was before Bathory, Celtic Frost/Hellhammer and Voivod one of our first metal influences. If there is debate about the right labeling of the music of Venom and the seriousness of their attitude, there are no doubts that they brought an important step in extreme metal. Back in 1981, the album "Welcome to Hell" was really something new at this time and thus we decided to make a cover of "In League with Satan", the heaviest song of the album. Primitive but powerful, this song was for us the most appropriate one to be arranged in Mordor’s way. Despite several covers done by other bands, the original song sounded perfect for us. So we decided to make a new arrangement and thus to re-appropriate to ourselves the song, in somehow similar to Laibach‘s way of work.
In the same spirit, this cover will deal not with Satanism but with Northern Germanic Tradition and will be dedicated to the Lord of Valhalla. The original lyrics will also be rewritten and new musical parts will be added, including extracts from the Rúnatáls-ţáttr-Óđins of the Hávamál, speaking about the origins of the runes and the sacrifice of the Raven-God to Himself for winning more wisdom and to reveal the runes.
This cover song renamed “In League with Wotan” will last between 15-16 minutes and we will keep us informed on the progress of the recording. It will be released by the label Nuclear War Now.

"I know that I hung,
on a wind-rocked tree,
nine whole nights,
with a spear wounded,
and to Odin offered,
myself to myself;
on that tree,
of which no one knows
from what root it springs."

Hávamál, Poetic Edda, Brodeur translation

Good news. Is it already foreseeable if both editions of this record will contain different renditions of each band's track in regards to restrictions of length concerning sound-quality on vinyl?

Either way, it's great to hear of new Mordor activity.

Edit: with Bunkur I've always felt that, while being an interesting and partly well-executed idea, "Bludgeon" rather was a so-so affair (it was too sterile and vapid, mostly). Their "Devolve" track on the "Church of Flagellation" tape, on the other hand, was mind-numbingly great. - Now, how did their 2009 album "Nullify" fare in this regard?

Oh so eagerly anticipated release on my side as I'm tremendously curious about Mordor's sound in 2011.

And remastered, at that. "Odes" needs additional low-end.

"Cesjthe" always sounded to me like decrepit and retarded cousin of "Into the Pandemonium", so I'm not too keen on that one; although it certainly has its questionable charm (similar to the essentially abominable electronica albums of Beherit).

Exactly how I feel about them. Their cover of Beholding the Daughters of the Firmament on their split with Moss was OK, too.
Manuel had an imaginary label, Comaworx, that were supposed to initially release Cthonic Rites and some other stuff. I sent him 18 Euro for CR and never saw hide nor hair of it again. I was at the Ashes to Ashes... Doom to Dust Fest in 2005 that he organized and it was fantastic but I believe he ripped off the bands. His name is mud at this stage.
