Primarily inspired by the works of Darkthrone and Burzum, Mork's third album Eremittens Dal stands as a tribute to the spirit of old-school Norwegian black metal. Raw production and ice-cold riffs combine with the band's dynamic and atmospheric twists and the album effortlessly alternates between the ferocious and the melancholy. Covering themes of hate, death, seclusion and misanthropy, both lyrically and in the way that a one-man-band makes music in solitude, the music is perfectly fitting of the title (translated as Valley Of The Hermit).
Having featured guest vocals from Darkthrone's Nocturno Culto on its previous album, Eremittens Dal includes special guest appearances from Dimmu Borgir's Silenoz who contributes vocals on two tracks, plus additional bass parts from 1349's Seidemann. Eremittens Dal was mixed by Freddy Holm at Kleiva Studio and mastered at Enormous Door in the US. The suitably grim pencil cover art comes courtesy of Jannicke Wiese-Hansen, who famously made artwork for early Burzum and Satyricon releases.
