Editorial Reviews

2009 release, the fifth album from the Norwegian Metal band. Eight Ways was recorded out in the calm of the countryside during the summer and fall of 2008. The album was recorded, produced and mixed by Madder guitarist BP M. Kirkevaag, mastered at Maor Appelbaum Mastering. The 12 songs are unmistakably Madder Mortem, travelling through a wide array of musical landscapes. You will detect traces of Tango and shuffle beats, Death Metal riffing or Folk music tonalities, but the main focus is as always the song. The soundscape is meticulously textured, allowing room for both the grand gestures and the minute details. Peaceville.

My first experience with this band, got a nice heavy sound and a lot of stylistic variety, sort of a cross between Korn and the Cranberries

2009's Eight Ways is the fifth studio album from Norwegian metal band Madder Mortem. I'm actually not sure what tag to give this band? Progressive? Avant-garde? Noise? Whatever it is, it's weird. I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this disc up in a clearance bin, but this bizarre platter of metal experimentation is definitely not it.

I'm sure the people who "get" this type of music will rave about Eight Ways. Unfortunately I'm just not in that camp. The music - technically proficient as it may be - is too jarring and unmelodic, and the vocals - distinct and powerful as they are - are simply too discordant and abrasive for my tastes. There are very few moments on Eight Ways that seem like a "real" metal album, and that's probably why I have such a hard time with it. I enjoy progressive bands like Leprous and Age of Silence, but Madder Mortem is just a little too far out there for me.

If your tastes run toward the avant-garde end of the metal spectrum (I'm talking Diablo Swing Orchestra and Stolen Babies here), you'll probably enjoy Eight Ways. It's not my kind of music, but I can still give Madder Mortem credit for creating real art here and not just aping Nightwish or After Forever's sound.

...Madder Mortem prove that they can create some of the most discordantly harmonious metal in existence!
