This is the soundtrack to the Norwegian movie Morgenrøde, released on dvd and bluray on 2016/05/09 after collecting an impressive serie of important reviews and prizes at various Sci-Fi movie exhibitions and dedicated magazines.
Music-side, the OST was composed and recorded by Ole Petter Sørum: when not imaginarily bound to the screen, we could define this as a "post-isolationist" / "post-apocalyptic" dark ambient record.
Very minimalist and extremely cold in the choice of sounds, this is not even imaginable as the perfect sound of a nightmare, but what comes after that.....
MORGENRØDE aka. DAWN  - a norwegian post-apocalyptic film
MORGENRØDE takes place at the beginning of a new aeon, in a water polluted world years after a global fall. Surrounded by an endless hazy and drab, bleak desert we follow two survivors who eye each other with the same mutual depraved suspicion as they contemplate their inhospitable surroundings. MORGENRØDE is a mythological chamber play about faith, the beyond and the struggle against dehydration, in the wide-open, post-apocalyptic landscape. Featuring Ingar Helge Gimle and Torstein Bjørklund. MORGENRØDE is the first feature film by Anders Elsrud Hultgreen.

I've come back to this album to give it it's well-deserved due.
The interpositions are coherent and cold, it's all put together really nicely which adds to the effectiveness of it's depressing atmosphere, and to it's faculty-decimating power.
Throughout the album it often reminds me of the great Bathory, which is always a good thing.

It's tremendously difficult to breathe in the thick and gloomy atmosphere NONE creates in this release. It's adorned with riffs so delicious, yet so devastating. The tracks are repetitive, yet never once do they get mundane. Definitely worth the listen if you are into slower-paced DSBM, this is truly a masterpiece. ethan_t

Soyons direct: grandiose ! d'une grande et belle intensité. La parenté, pour moi avec My Dying Bride est évidente, mais on est loin de simples imitations. Qu'il s'agisse du chant, des riffs, de la complexité de construction, le tout est de très belle facture. Une oeuvre sombre et romantique comme on n'en croise pas tous les jours. Par contre deux titres instrumentaux un peu plats par contraste... baudelagon
