Mortiis

Mortiis (intentional misspelling of the word 'mortis' meaning "Death") is the name of a band from Notodden (Norway) fronted by Håvard Ellefsen. Mortiis started as the solo project of Ellefsen who used to be the bassist and primary lyricist for the legendary black metal band Emperor in the early '90s. He parted ways with Emperor because he wasn't interested in black metal anymore. Immediately after that he formed "Moriis" as an ambient/darkwave band.

Mortiis (intentional misspelling of the word 'mortis' meaning "Death") is the name of a band from Notodden (Norway) fronted by Håvard Ellefsen. Mortiis started as the solo project of Ellefsen who used to be the bassist and primary lyricist for the legendary black metal band Emperor in the early '90s. He parted ways with Emperor because he wasn't interested in black metal anymore. Immediately after that he formed "Moriis" as an ambient/darkwave band. Mortiis' music may be divided into three distinct eras: 1. The legendary widely praised ambient era which lasted till 1999 and "The Stargate" album. 2. The short darkwave/synthpop era with "The Smell of Rain" album. 3. Industrial rock era since "The Grudge" onwards. Most of his first era works, particularly albums as Født til å herske, Ånden som gjorde opprør and Keiser av en dimensjon ukjent are regarded as indisputable masterpieces of ambient/darkwave style. The band's current lineup: Mortiis/Håvard Ellefsen: Keyboards, Programming, Vocals Tim van Horn: Drums Levi Gawron: Guitars, Programming, Bass Mortiis/Håvard Ellefsen's other ambient/darkwave bands and projects: Vond, Fata Morgana, Cintecele Diavolui « hide
