Long a mainstay of the US death metal underground,
Morta Skuld enjoyed a fine run in the mid-nineties.
They released three albums on the respected
Peaceville Records label in England,
but the failure to get a US release for any of
those three frustrated the band, and so they turned to
Records for their 1997 effort, Surface.
They broke up a year later, and some time after that two of the guys
came back together, but with a switch in style more akin to
They originally went by the name MS2, and then 9MM Solution, and
under that name a 2004 EP was released.
But that band ran its course as well, and the same pair put
Morta Skuld back together in 2012, though now only
Dave Gregor remains from the old days.
