Corpus Mortale was founded in early 1993 by Nicholas
Masch?ln(drums) and S?ren Jensen(guitar). After some line-up
changes Martin Rosendahl(vocals & bass) joined in Spring 1994.
At the time the band was kind of a hobby band, nevertheless, a
demo-tape was recorded in May 1995. The tape received positive
reactions in the underground press, and the band went on with more
serious intentions! After playing a couple of shows, the band
recruited a fourth member. Morten Jensen joined the band early in
1996. Only three months later the band went to the studio, to
record their second demo, the mcd "Integration". This time the band
got even better recognition, and the full pressing of 800 copies
was sold out in 7 months.
The following years (1997-1999) was spent playing shows both in
Denmark and Germany, and composing new material. S?ren and Morten
grew tired of Corpus Mortale, and after the crashed album attempt
"Spiritism", they decided to leave! While searching for
replacements, Martin and Nicholas continued to write new songs, and
when Brian Eriksen (guitar & vocals) and Jens Lee (guitar)
joined in September, it didn?t take long before the band was ready
for the recording of their final official demo. The mcd "Succumb To
The Superior" was recorded and released, and once again the critics
were overwhelming! Loads of good reviews, interviews and a couple
of (unfortunately bad!?!) contract offers.
In the summer of 2001 Jens Lee left the band due to lack of time
and dedication. Just a few months later Roar Christoffersen
(guitar) joins in and in December the label-only "Sombre And
Vile"mcd, was conceived! Once more, only bad contract offers
In the summer of 2003 Brian was no longer into playing metal no
more, he left a few months later. The year of 2003 was spent
shopping the album "With Lewd Demeanor"! A couple of quite
interesting offers slipped right through, but in the end? in
October 2003 the bands signed a contract with Dutch label Neurotic
Records ! The album was released on 23rd of November, just 10 days
after the band had returned from a 12 date European tour.
Material for the second album "A New Species of Deviant" has been
written after that, and has now been recorded completely. This
album will see the light of day through Neurotic Records in mid
2007. Corpus Mortale is currently looking for a proper guitar
player! Mads Haarl?v will fill in on the rhytm guitar spot as a
session member, until a replacement shows up!
