Morthound was the creative alter-ego of the man we now know as BJ Nilsen between the years of 1990-96, starting when he was just 15, so all this stuff must’ve been over by the time he was 22! You certainly can’t fault his creative drive, can you? Anyway, this is a beautifully presented box which contains four full-length albums and then a fifth CD titled ‘Unleashed 1990-1996’ which mops up any other recordings that might’ve been lying around.
It’s spooky stuff of course, and very difficult to try and make a proper evaluation of a five CD box in the short time we have to describe the week’s releases. Largely this is steady and sinister dark ambience with lots of gliding drones and mystyckal atmospherics, like Dead Can Dance died and made some recordings as ghosts. Clocks tick, distant solar winds whoosh, drones drone, the tones are very understated and sensitively constructed considering how young he was! A fascinating and gigantic collection.
