Mortemia sees Mort minus band, and it is a solid if uninspired effort. Misere
Mortem is a testament to Veland's compositional aptitude, though not his most
engaged work by far. It contains the elements of what made Beyond The Veil
and (most of) At Sixes and Sevens the defining albums they were but
unfortunately lacks the fluidity of those albums, as well as the full, rich sound,
and Veland may never choose to return to the poetic, gothic lyrics that helped
set BTV apart from the rest - the theme of inner demons here is conveyed in a
straightforward and unoriginal manner, but it's a notable album regardless.
