5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant music of times past. 10 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
I became interested with Mortiis after I bought the smell of rain album, though I liked it I was curious to see if his earlier albums were better, so I bought The Stargate and The Crypt of The Wizard.

These cd's from ERA 1 are, in my opinion vastly superior to Mortiis's newest releases.

I know alot of people will ask how I can compare two seperate genres of music, but I am not, i'm comparing the standard to Mortiis's creativity.

This album is brilliant in every way.

It serves well when concentrating specifically on listening, but it also excels as background music, when writing *or reading a David Gemmel book*

My favourite track would be "World Essence".

It is hauntingly sad but is beautiful with it, it has some of the most beautiful female vocals i've heard in a song, and the woman sobbing throughout is perfect for the mood.

This album is music for a dark faerytale and I think alot of people who enjoy epic fantasy music should invest in this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars *** Mortiis *** 3 Oct 2005
By Gavin Moore VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This album is a masterpiece, I heard the track "I am the World" and didn't like it at first but after a good listen I found it was different and that it had grown on me so I bought the album only to find it was one of the best albums I have ever bought. There are few vocals on the album but the music speaks for itself transporting the listener to other worlds. I think this would have been a good alternative soundtrack to The Lord of the Rings with it's dark medieval vibe, the female haunting vocals (courtesy of Sarah Jezebel Diva) flow nicely over the top of this just adding to the thick atmosphere it creates. This was a brave style of music to undertake as it's not exactly trendy (like his latter offerings) but I suppose it's why I like it. Give it a try :)

4.0 out of 5 stars King Arthur's favourite CD 21 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was not very sure what to expect when I bought this CD. I doubted whether Mortiis' sound would be Death Metal or Gothic Rock or Dark Wave, but I was wrong. It's sort of dark ambient. Stargate is an excellent work, listening to it brings you into the Medieval times. It's so expressive that when I listen to it I feel like if I am watching a film about a Medieval topic, such as Excalibur. I wonder if this is the sort of Music King Arthur would like to listen to (I think he would) as well as Mortiis has the look of one of the foes with whom King Arthur would like to fight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is it really the same group! 4 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
Can this really be the the Dark Mortis,that we know & love! on first putting this on my cd player, i thought they had put the wrong disc in the cd case! Sounds more like a film soundtrack...but the more you play it, the better it gets! Never judge a cd by looking at the cover!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking The Black Metal Chains........... 15 Oct 2000
By Keith Suchland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mortiis, as most black metal fans realize, once played bass with Emperor, and was also the chief songwriter of their earlier releases. Yet, for Mortiis, this was simply a temporary stop on his way to valleys much darker and forboding. Mortiis' music is not black metal, not metal at all. Some call it dark wave or dark ambient, he calls it "dark dungeon music". This discription is appropriate. Each release is primarily instrumental, with the occasional haunting vocals or wails of anguish. Sarah Jezebel provided the vocals on this release. Listening, you are sent on a journey to the stars, on viking ships and other regions....a very haunting and very beautiful release. This import is coupled with a leather bound book, filled with imformation and prose. A must have addition to any collection. Ave, Mortiis.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Stargate 15 Oct 2000
By Örn Erlingsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you really want to hear how to make a classical dark music this is the cd! This pure masterpiece from the Norweigian Mortiis takes you into his adventure world and there's no way back. The best thing you can do is lay in your bed with no light and have headphones put the volume of your cd player on high and really listen becouse this is a unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 28 Sep 2000
By Patricia A. Harvey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Even friends of mine who are less "eclectic" and more conservative in their music taste found this to be excellent listening. I'm a new convert to the "ambient Gothic" sound - and highly recommend Stargate to anyone who wants to try something different.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey to a Land far away. 14 Oct 2000
By A. Tamez Elizondo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Come traveller and sit by the fire and make us, old fools with timeless tales, company. You ought to be tired from your long journey through the misty mountains, don't you? You should be, my friend! Now rest and gain forces, for tomorrow will be a hard day. But never sleep unarmed! You never know what beast might crawl out of the dark forest and attack you.
This is just one small piece of what the real essence behind Mortiis is. This album, is simply fantastic, not only will you be entranced by the atmosphere it creates, but you will make your imagination fly. And if you are already an imaginative individual, (such as myself) your imagination won't fly, but your whole essence will be transported there.
Truly an epic.
4.0 out of 5 stars Think....Lord Of The Rings! 20 May 2009
By CRAZOTOLOGY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Good concept album about elves, dragons, trolls, the end of the world...the age of fire....the cloak and dagger, etc., . It's fun, it's dark, and it's weird. And now it's remastered. Mortiis's The Stargate is essential Mortiis.
