It's most likely that you've only heard the smell of rain. I was at first amazed at the scale of Mortiis' history. His work with the Norwegian black metal band, Emperor, to the darkness of Keiser and Crypt Of The Wizard. This record, Fodt Til a Herske (born to rule) is Mortiis at his best. The ambience is pure genius. Sadly the original version of this album (featuring some nice extras) is hard to come by, however once you listen to this you'll see the music alone makes up for that. Both tracks are almost 30minutes long, i find it best to listen to when reading or late at night when going to sleep. Like Mortiis' old work this album will sadly dissapear in time, i urge you to get it.

as Mortiis himself described the album. A majestic instrumental composition with only two tracks taking up over fifty minutes, which lets you immerse into the imagery of a dark medival fantasy world. The way Mortiis constructs his songs seems like he's trying to tell a story, it's however sort of repetitive. Nevertheless Mortiis is one of the best composers of majestic ambient. The album is a very successful solo debut for this new style of Mortiis after he had played for Emperor for a few years. Don't look for much similarity between the two however. You should definetely consider getting latter albums of Mortiis where he's style developed gradually and becomes more varied.

'Fodt til a Herske' (meaning 'Born to Rule') was Mortiis first venture into the world of dark ambient music that he became well known for after leaving Emperor in the early nineties. What he gives us is two 25+ minute tracks of medieval sounding synth music with very dark. mournful and menacing themes that work ideally in providing the atmosphere they set out to.
There is absolutely no resemblance between this material and the later electro rock of 'The Smell of Rain', which is also a fantastic album, but if its dark atmosphere you're after, then you can't go wrong with this title.

This is hardly a very exciting record. It is two long tracks of eerie keyboard noise with occasional medieval type sounds of some destruction flittering in to add menance.
It certainly creates a very strong dark ambience. If like me you really enjoy that and want something to listen too while reading, this might be for you.

Enter the Kingdom of Mortiis 14 Feb. 2002
By Grimnir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
No words could do "Fodt til a Herske" justice. Suffice to say it's an epic, hallucinogenic journey to another world - a mysterious relm of twilight winter forests and dark mountains.
It's too bad some people can't understand Mortiis' appearance - he is a "method musician". His appearance is just another part of his world which he has chosen to give us a glimpse of through his music. You wouldn't expect music like this to be performed by a guy who looks like Rickey Martin, would you?

Unexpectedly good... 26 May 2001
By panarion@btopenworld.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To be honest, Mortiis' appearance is not his selling point. All the prosthetic malarky he insists on wearing renders him a walking joke, a Goth gone completely and totally to a critical level of camp. Naturally this is probably a bit of a turn off for those who like their gothic ambience/black metal a shade darker and more sinister than what is essentially the flip side to Ronald McDonald, and hardly seductive to the rest of the self respecting consumer environment. But then maybe thats intentional; Mortiis, despite notable black metal roots, has composed on this album, likewise its superior sister 'The Stargate', long anthems of astonishing melody and musical complexity. No lighting fast razor tipped guitar riffs or shrieking, inaudible lyrics to be found, simply slow drawn out and satisfying processions of thematic 'dungeon sound'. Admittedly at times it does seem to slip into a monotony reminiscent of film soundtrack, music that seems to require a visual accompniment to do it justice, and it's not the best example of the 'satanic symphony' (that award goes to, of all things, the soundtrack to Winona Ryder's uber crap 'Lost Souls'), but it is a considerable accomplishment. Shut your eyes and think of fyords.

Fodt Til A Herske 9 Nov. 2005
By Rebecca Lyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off, I must say that this review is coming from a fan of all types of music. I was incredibly fortunate to find this at my local record store. Being a huge fan of Emperor, I was curious to see what Mortiis was all about, so I purchased this without question. This is a very unique album with only two songs that span over 25 minutes each. They are deep, meaningful, and well orchestrated. At first listen, this appeared to be amongst the most depressing albums I had ever heard, but as I listened to it more and more, it's possible to see that there are different emotions put into this kind of music, not just sorrow. The artwork perfectly coincides with the music, as it is very close to what I picture in my head while listening. With the right ear, this album can lead to a very rewarding and blissful experience.

Sheer Brilliance 27 Sept. 2006
By Ashley Nyal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've known of Mortiis for quite some time. The very first song I heard from him was Parasite God and I fell in love with it. Not only was his appearance intriguing, but his music was something I didn't think would come from someone who looked like that. I started growing an ear for industrial and EBM music, and his albums were perfect. I didn't hear "Fodt Til A Herske" until a while after I heard Parasite God, and when I did hear it, I was taken away. This CD is by far superior to almost everything I own. It sounds so beautiful. Very good to relax to, and it puts the most wonderful thoughts in my head. I'm just still upset I had to miss both his tours due to the fact that he did not come to Arizona. Anyone who is a fan of anything renaissance and medieval, I recommend this album!!

This music will rip your black sould apart 1 Jan. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mortiis is one of the most talented ex-black metal men ever to exsist. He was once the bassist for the extreme black metal band emperor but has moved on to darker and more mood setting music, it is VERY atmoshpereric. If you do not enjoy music that is long repetitve songs, very dark,mood setting and sadistic, then Im affraid you will not like Mortiis the multi tanlented man who also has two side projects such as VOND and FATA MORGANA which is also very intresting,dark and mainly lyricless music that will fill your black soul which is no longer a void. I recommand this to any fan of black metal or mood setting music, but beware, can your pure heart handle the wrath of Mortiis? END
