Marrow is the seventh album from Madder Mortem, and the record following up Red In Tooth And Claw to years ago. The band also have two successful European tours with fellow Scandinavians Soen. Marrow showcases a hungry band with focus on to develop and experiment. The music on Marrow is heavier than ever, but it`s a complex record with a wide register of genres and expressions.
The music alternates between folk, progressive moments to avant garde, from pretty music and ballads to challenging modernistic tonality and harshness. With Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s dynamic and powerful vocals on top, as always. Lyric wise, the album is about sticking to the essence of yourself. Your ideas, your thoughts, your values. To stay true to your roots – your Marrow.
Their most doomy album to date, and at times both heavier and catchier than it’s predecessor Red In Tooth And Claw, Marrow might for many real music lovers be a perfect album for those thunderous autumn storms coming soon. Marrow is produced by BP M. Kirkevaag & Madder Mortem, mastered by Peter In De Betou at Tailor Maid.
Line-up: Agnete M. Kirkevaag – Vocals, BP M. Kirkevaag – Guitars, percussion and vocals, Anders Langberg – Guitars, Tormod L. Moseng – Bass, Mads Solås – Drums, percussion and vocals
