Formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1990, Morta Skuld has been in the American death metal scene for 25 years, and has played with such bands as Death, Obituary, Slayer, and Napalm Death among others. Morta Skuld went on to sign with England's Peaceville Records. After breaking up for number of years, the band reformed with a new breed and take on their genre.
Dying Remains was the band's debut, originally released in 1993 and recorded at Cornerstone Studios. The band brought a refreshing blend of heavy and brutal death and doom along with more atmospheric and melodic elements instead of straight forward fast and brutal death metal releases prevalent in the US scene at the time, an element which helped to distinguish them from many of their peers.
This edition of Dying Remains, arriving over 20 years after the initial release, has been fully remastered with the process overseen by the band, and comes pressed on limited edition 180-gram vinyl.
