Polish doom-death veterans MORDOR announce the release of their first album in 21 years, titled “Darkness...” and arriving from Pagan Records on April 20th.
MORDOR were pioneers within Poland’s initial doom / death metal movement of the early Nineties. The band’s releases at that time, 1992’s Nothing demo and the full length albums Prayer To… (1993) and The Earth (1997), received quite positive acclaim and recognition.
Now the band returns, some 21 years after their last release, with “Darkness…” and its six tracks of oldschool heaviness. It was recorded at No Solace Studio with production duties handled by M. of MGLA fame, and is adorned with artwork created by Arkadiusz Zając and graphic design done by MentalPorn.
