Superb value 3 CD box set that brings together Mortiis's (Emperor) three early albums that show his dark ambient / industrial beginnings with 'Fodt Til A Herske' through to the far more accessible and alike to his later work 'The Stargate'.
Only available in this reverse opening bookshelf box for a limited time this is the great way to introduce you to one of the Norwegian music scenes greats and at a stunning price how can you resist!
A beautifully crafted set of songs given the remastered and repackaged treatment. Personally remastered by Mortiis with liner notes by Tommy Udo and presented in a deluxe embossed slipcase.
Most adventurous album yet, fleshed out with more instrumentation and female vocals - well worth checking out as Mortiis definately sounds different to how you might think he should.
