OSLO - For the first time ever, composer Martin Romberg has taken on the task of transcribing influential black metal into full classical sheet music, beginning with Emperor's 1994 masterpiece In the Nightside Eclipse.
"Martin has clearly put a lot of time and effort into transferring the Nightside Eclipse record into actual sheet music," said original Emperor bassist Mortiis, "and it's cool to be a small part of that."
The 72-page score includes all instruments and chord analysis for study and performance.
It is published by Raven Music Editions, a sheet music publisher founded in 2014, specializing in producing scores from dark alternative and black metal music genres. It is the first publisher of its kind. The score is available via www.ravenmusic.org.
In the 20 years since In the Nightside Eclipse's release, Mortiis has gone on an eponymous journey that began as solo dark, ambient music and has since evolved into a full band playing equally dark, angry, industrial-influenced heavy music. Mortiis' long-awaited new album will be available March 4.
MORTIIS will be returning to UK shores for a run of seven headline shows in May - the tour kicks off at Newcastle's Cluny venue on May 23 and commences at Bristol's Fleece on May 29. The tour will follow hot on the heels of the forthcoming release of Mortiis' new album The Great Deceiver which is out on March 4 via Omnipresence.
The band comments: "It's about time we came back to the UK for some shows. See you in May, you bastards."

OSLO - In anticipation of Mortiis' upcoming The Great Deceiver album, Mortiis is offering a free download of "The Shining Lamp of God."
Similar to late last year's free download of "Doppleganger," "The Shining Lamp of God" download will come complete with a remix by MELT, the track's recently release music video, artwork, screensavers and other bonus graphics.
"We know fans have been waiting a long time for The Great Deceiver, so this is our way of giving them a little extra gift, as well as wetting their appetites for the full album," Mortiis said.
Fans have the option to donate if they wish, with funds going to offset the costs of recording and releasing The Great Deceiver.
"We are digging deep into our own shallow pockets to finance everything ourselves this time around," Mortiis said. "So, it's certainly not required, but donations are always appreciated!"
The video for "The Shining Lamp of God" can be viewed at https://youtu.be/peiIL5ExGnk.
Mortiis's The Great Deceiver will be released March 4, 2016 via Omnipresence/MRI.
TORONTO - The latest video from Epitaph recording artist SayWeCanFly, "Driftwood Heart," will be unveiled on January 14.
The clip for the second single from Canadian singer/songwriter Braden Barrie's Darling EP focuses on freezing a moment in time.
"There are so many things that come along with connecting with another human being," Barrie said. "I wanted to dive into the first time two people fall in love and tell the story before it happens."
Barrie worked closely with director Micah Adrian, editing footage for nearly 10 hours, looking for the perfect combination of colors, slow motion movements and the marriage of visuals to the song.
"I wanted to fill this video with metaphors and leave it open to individual interpretation, while still creating the vibes I felt when I wrote the song," he said. "It was fun to work so closely on a SayWeCanFly video, and I don't think I've ever been so stoked to release a music video. 'Driftwood Heart' is a special one, and a story that isn't over quite yet."
