Madder Mortem announce new album!

One of Norway’s most interesting bands, MADDER MORTEM, has always defied any attempt at genre-labeling. Fronted by Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s unique, wide-ranging voice, it can be said that they pretty much define the “All Things To All Men” category, drawing fans who profess a liking for genres that range from Prog to Metal, Rock to Extreme.

But make no mistake, this is not a band that wanders aimlessly through the genre minefield. MADDER MORTEM know exactly what they are doing and where they want to go, and have had almost 30 years to hone their very considerable skills. Skills that will be used to good effect on what will be the band’s 8th full-length album, which will be titled “Old Eyes, New Heart” and will be out on Dark Essence Records on January 26th 2024.

And while we wait for the release day, Dark Essence have brought us the first single from the album titled ‘Towers’

‘Towers’ can be downloaded/streamed HERE.
An accompanying video by Patrick Scantlebury can be seen HERE.

MADDER MORTEM comment on the track: “Drawing inspiration from grunge, post-metal and 70s rock, “Towers” is about how people sometimes create defences in their heads to protect themselves. However, those defences can become too strong over time, and what was once built to lock out, becomes something that locks in.
