Artist Biography by

Denmark's ubiquitous Nortt is a reclusive vocalist and multi-instrumentalist specializing in what critics have labeled "depressive black funeral doom," and whose closest parallels include Australia's equally bleak and misanthropic Disembowelment. Beginning his experiments in 1995, Nortt has recorded a number of demos (1997's "Nattetale," 1998's "Doeden," 1999's "Graven") and official releases, most of them short-form singles and EPs, like 2002's Hedengang and 2003's Gudsforladt. That same year saw a compilation of his scattered works unleashed as Mournful Monuments 1998-2002, but that's about as big a picture as we're likely to see of this intentionally obscure artist.
