Biography

MORTEMIA is the solo project by gothic metal giant Morten Veland, the founder of Tristania and mastermind of Sirenia.

MORTEMIA’s debut album “Misere Mortem” continues to justify the Norwegian mastermind’s outstanding reputation within the dark scene over the years. His signature compositions deliver smashing metal songs enveloped in sonorous and mythic choral arrangements, as well as sensual melody lines. The classical passages fit in perfectly with the overall atmosphere, refining with myriad details MORTEMIA’s unique and melancholic sound, as only Veland can. It is the master himself, who lends his aggressive vocals to the nine new tracks, further embellishing them with a darkened aura. Coupled with the mastering expertise of Finnvox Studios, Morten Veland has created a gothic metal album not only far removed from any inkling of kitsch and pop, but also one that will thrill fans of Tristania’s classic “Beyond the Veil”. “Misere Mortem” is already a gem of the somber scene and will undoubtedly allow the gothic metal of the glory days a well deserved comeback!

    I still like Mortemia. It's just Sirenia without the female vocals. I mean I love both but it's really nice. It reminds me of NDAAD without Monika (which is my fav Sirenia album). I really hope he makes another album but the new Sirenia album was good so no loss either way really!

    Strange, I seem to be on the wrong page. I thought I clicked on "mortemia", not "sirenia", "tristania" or "click here to bitch about a dude". [2] lol

    Forgettable. Looks like Morten Veland got tired of making good music to start creating this laughable crap, how could someone say this is better than Tristania? Are you fucking kidding me??

    The old Tristania albums haven't magically disappeared from the world, you can still listen to them & Vibeke as much as you like but that doesn't change the fact that many of us would like to see a new Mortemia album. Although I admit it would be cool if Veland got Vibeke to do some guest vocals on it. Though then it might just be too similar to Sirenia...
