Guest review by

If there was ever a more polarising album I've yet to hear it. There's no "it's not bad" or "it's pretty good," only abject disdain and unparalleled adoration. I may be overstating it somewhat but the case with Blut Aus Nord's most experimental release to date is that it flies so flagrantly in the face of convention you either get it or you don't. Perhaps the biggest reason for this is because there really is no precedent with MoRT. Is it black metal? Is it industrial? It may be both. Then again it may be neither. But then that's part of its ambivalent beauty.

Rating: 9 Yep this is great really challenging and overwhelming in an oppressive way. I don't see myself listening to it all of the time but when I do it is rewarding

Rating: 10 This album really is like a fine wine; it get's better with age:

Rating: 10 This is really a great album. I hope that they come back on their style in MoRT some day.

Rating: 10 Really gets better with each spin. Btw,I think I've read an interview with Vindsval about MoRT that he stated this album is exclusively recorded by himself and no other band member was involved because MoRT has personal value/meaning for him and he couldn't let any body else to have influence on it. Am I right?

  If it's an album that gets better with more spins, I'll never know cause it bored me enough that I don't want to touch it again. The Work Which Transforms God is miles beyond this.

I've long since become so familiar with TWWTG that listening to it gives me very little aside from a few of the tracks. MoRT however is still as fresh and challenging as the day it first came out. MoRT is definitely the most pure representation of the band, and it's most accomplished release for me.

Rating: 10 I find it quite worrying that the MS user called M.o.R.T. gave this album 6/10.

Rating: 9 Maybe he's just a huge Pratchett fan? Although it doesn't make sense considering the capitalization he used.

Rating: 10 Yeah this gets better with each spin. Still looking for bands playing anything similar to this.
My only complain is that it's too short for its own good. By the time the album ends I feel unsatisfied.
I cant wait to hear his other project which is meant to be a combination of MorT and sound of bands like Virus, VED BUENS ENDE and Gorguts.
