XUN Lots of precious demo versions here!
But I would also recommend to buy an iTunes version of this EP, it has louder and thicker sounding full-lenght version of "Doppelganger" (then the album one). Favorite track: Scalding The Burnt (greatgreat god demo).

Jordan L This may be a surprise comeback for many people, especially for those whom 2010's 'Perfectly Defect' failed to stir much enthusiasm. As before with Mortiis, a new era means a new sound, though this time meaning a revert to a previous style. Specifically the electronically charged gothic rock as heard on 2004's 'The Grudge' which saw Mortiis at their commercial peak. 'Doppelganger' isn't as striking as earlier material but has the ingredients to intrigue newcomers and longtime fans alike. 7/10 Favorite track: Doppelganger (single edit).

Mortiis Oslo, Norway

Joined Emperor 1991.
Fired from Emperor on grounds of a "bad attitude" late 1992.
Formed Mortiis next day.
Planned recordings in Transylvania 1993.
That did not happen.
Released several solo albums in the 90´ies & weirding out the music industry with his prosthetic mask.
Oh those yonder days of media hypocrisy.
Became band. Band died.
Broke ribs, dreams and industry shackles, but remained free.
