“Red In Tooth And Claw” is the sixth full-length album from MADDER MORTEM, a band who has broken away from established genre boundaries, to develop  an experimental progressive  sound, epitomised by Agnete M. Kirkevaag’s extensive vocal range that can express itself in the most tender of whispers or the harshest of screams.  Undoubtely, the seven years between the release of the band’s previous album “Eight Ways”, and “Red In Tooth And Claw”, have seen MADDER MORTEM’s quirkiness remain intact, whilst the addition of catchy elements and interesting shifts between doomy melodies and hard-hitting riffs have added a new dimension to the band’s sound. Aside from Agnete of vocals, MADDER MORTEM’s lineup includes BP. M. Kirkevaag on guitar & vocals, Richard Wikstrand on guitars, Tormod L. Moseng on bass and Mads Solås on drums.

The ten-track album will first be released in CD and Digital formats on the 28th October,  to be followed by the vinyl edition on the 9th December.

With artwork by Christian Ruud, tracklisting for “Red In Tooth and Claw” is as follows:

  1. Blood on the sand
  2. If I could
  3. Fallow season
  4. Pitfalls
  5. All the giants are dead
  6. Returning to the end of the world
  7. Parasites
  8. Stones for eyes
  9. The whole where your heart belongs
  10. Underdogs

Formed in 1993, and, having started out with a doom metal sound, MADDER MORTEM became one of the earliest bands from the contemporary Norwegian metal scene to break away from set genre boundaries.   With each of its releases MADDER MORTEM continued to develop, seamlessly transitioning into an experimental progressive metal band with a unique sense of groove and contrasting arrangements.

With a  lineup comprised of Agnete M. Kirkevaag on vocals, BP. M. Kirkevaag on guitar & vocals, Richard Wikstrand on guitars, Tormod L. Moseng on bass and Mads Solås on drums, and with seven years between the release of the band’s last album “Eight Ways” and “Red In Tooth And Claw”,  the band still maintains the trademark MADDER MORTEM sound, which is so well defined by Agnete’s massive vocals that range from the most tender whispers to the most violent screams.  All in all, the long-awaited album retains all of the band’s quirkiness, and gives it a catchy boost, with songs shifting between doomy melodies and hard-hitting riffs.

Dark Essence Records have today announced that they have added Norwegian Alternative Metallers MADDER MORTEM to their roster.  The label is set to release the band’s sixth full length album, titled “Red In Tooth And Claw”, later this year, on a date as yet to be announced.  As a taste of what fans can expect, MADDER MORTEM have put together a teaser of some of the songs from “Red In Tooth And Claw”, which can be heard at http://www.maddermortem.com/mp3/teasers/MM_RITAC_Teaser_01.mp3

Formed in 1993, originally under the name of Mystery Tribe, MADDER MORTEM’s music, with its hauntingly beautiful vocals by Agnete M. Kirkevaag,  is atmospheric and melodic, with a very definite progressive leaning, but at the same time the band can show an underlying aggression that gives their sound a harder, more driven edge than one might expect.  Aside from Agnete, MADDER MORTEM’s five-member lineup includes BP. M. Kirkevaag on guitar & vocals, Richard Wikstrand on guitars, Tormod L. Moseng on bass and Mads Solås on drums.

More information about MADDER MORTEM can be found on the band’s website at http://www.maddermortem.com/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Madder-Mortem-10035071567
