Muisical style[eedit | eedit soorce]

Mortem’s muisical style is firmly ruitit in the daith metal, black metal an thrash metal o the 1980's. Mortem’s characteristic hivy soond is defined throu slow an sinister daith metal alternatit wi fast an aggressive coonterpairts. Frantic tremolo pickin in the style o early Possessed an Death biggit on passionate rhythmic percussion topped wi wailin atonal an melodic guitar solos comprise a potent mix which lives up tae the principle o daith metal technique tae craft pundin ritualistic an spiritit daith metal. Vocals are forged frae guttural rasps an aften develop intae heich shrieks while leerics deal mainly wi Occultism an Satanism.
