25 Years Ago: MORTIIS completes The Song of a Long Forgotten Ghost


MORTIIS "apologizes" the musical mistakes comitted on this recording, 95% was done at one tack. So Fuck off!!

After leaving EMPEROR in December 1992, MORTIIS began recording this debut demo the following March. Completed and self-released in June 1993, then re-released later that year by Pagan Records and Witching Hour in Poland.

On leaving EMPEROR:

I liked to pull strings. And we had very different views upon things as you can clearly see compariing MORTIIS and EMPEROR. We're not even a bit similar. Also I wrote all the lyrics and was the spokesman in the band. Probably I said & did things they didn't enjoy. I tended to spread piles of shit to everyone. As well as my temper - it is not always to be trusted!
