The Best of Mortiis

In the early to mid 90s, Mortiis released a string of 12" records; these were collected in the Crypt of the Wizard compilation. This collection represents a creative zenith for Mortiis, and contains most of his best work. Inspired by Norwegian folkore and music, these bombastic folkish epics trudge along, pushed foward by militaristic percussion. The melodies themselves alternate between accenting the percussion and flowing a long with it. This is highly effective as ambient music, and I would recommend it to fans of Summoning, Lord Wind, and Dead Can Dance.

Great Album

This has to be my favorite of Mortiis early works.
