Biografie

Madder Mortem is a female fronted progressive doom metal band. It was formed in 1993 in Norway under the name Mystery Tribe.
In the beginning Madder Mortem was formed in 1993 as Mystery Tribe, and recorded the demo "Days in Sorrow". The name was changed to Madder Mortem, and in January 1997, the MCD "Misty Sleep" was recorded. The result was mailed around, Misanthropy Records reacted and the debut "Mercury" (X-ray Studios) was released in February 1999. "Mercury" was well received, but sadly, Misanthropy decided to close down, which left the Madders with neither company nor contract.


In 1999 Christian Ruud (guitars), Boye Nyberg (bass) and Sigurd Nielsen (drums) left the band to pursue educations and other pastimes.
This was naturally a setback, but after some time Agnete and BP found new musicians. Eirik Ulvo Langnes (guitars), Pål Mozart Bjørke (bass) and Mads Solås (drums) joined the band. All former acquaintances, the new members fitted in perfectly.
In December 1999 Century Media got in touch. The Madders promptly got to work, and in January 2000 a new demo was recorded (Space Valley Studios). This demo, containing three of the "AFIG" songs, saw the Madders turn in a new and heavier direction. Century Media received this demo exclusively and Madder Mortem became a CMR band. Madder Mortem's second album, "All flesh is grass" (Studio Underground, Sweden) was released in February 2001, with cover art from former guitar player Christian Ruud. Reviews were very good, and the aggressive and driven music lent another face to Madder Mortem.

September/October 2001, Madder Mortem supported Tristania, Rotting Christ and Vintersorg on a 23-date European tour. Returning back home, the Madders started writing again. Studio Underground was re-invaded in May 2002, and after a hard-as-hell period of three weeks, "Deadlands" was born. It is darker and groovier than its' predecessor, but also shows even more sides to the Madder face. Music, lyrics and cover art (by Christian) was developed together, and the conceptual whole is a bleak but organic monster not fit for the faint of heart.
"Deadlands" was released 21st October 2002. The End Records licensed it for the US, and on 11th February 2003 we had our first album release in the US.

In February and March 2003 Madder Mortem supported Opeth on the European leg of their "Deliverance" tour. A chance like that doesn't come often, and the reason for it was Mr Åkerfeldt's personal interest in the Madder music. We had 6 fantastic weeks on the road with a band that have mastered both musical and social skills, and we're very grateful to the Opeth guys for giving us this opportunity. In addition to taking us all over Western Europe, the Opeth tour also saw us entering the UK shores for the first time.

2006 saw the release of Madder Mortem's 4th full length studio album, Desiderata. The album is more polished than deadlands and sees a shift back away from any "nu-metal" stylings that had crept into the deadlands album.

Eight Ways is the all new album from Madder Mortem, released in June 2009.

Poslední dobou máme na ty čtvrtky štěstí, nezdá se vám? Došel jsem totiž k poznání, že tento den je prostě metalový, tedy alespoň pro mě. Pokud není koncert (a koncertní čtvrtky jsou v Black Psu časté, mrkněte na data reportů), je nějaká jiná akce nebo máme zkoušku s 1*?5, ale to vás asi nezajímá, co? Tentokrát na zkoušku samozřejmě nedošlo, protože jsme se s MJC týmem nacházeli, jak je u koncertů pořádaných duem Shindy & Violet...

Tři velká jména a jedno, které začíná pěkně vystrkovat růžky, se zastavila nedaleko od Prahy, přičemž vzniklá kombinace stylů byla natolik lákavá, že zaručovala uspokojení jak příznivců kovu černého, tak i toho s kosou. Domněnka se potvrdila až nepříjemně. Klub doslova praskal ve švech - okolo 450-ti hlav stálo, sedělo, leželo kde se jen dalo… Takovouto návštěvu věru nečekali ani pořadatelé, což jim snad pro příště bude stát za pouva...
