MORTHOND - Death Time

"Step into the enigmatic world of Morthond, a captivating music project that took shape during the winter of 1990 under the creative guidance of the singular talent, BJ Nilsen. Unlike traditional projects, Morthond thrives on pushing sonic boundaries and challenging the norm. BJ Nilsen's craftsmanship lies in his ability to orchestrate sounds that immerse listeners in a realm where emotions intertwine with auditory perceptions. Urashima's vinyl reissue of Death Time is a mesmerizing portal to the project's formative years. Originally introduced on cassette through Sound Source in 1991, this album serves as the inaugural chapter in Morthond's sonic journey. Death Time not only showcases the debut of the project but also unveils a realm of experimental artistry that defies convention. It's an audacious fusion of experimental compositions and ambient soundscapes, a testament to BJ Nilsen's unrelenting quest to carve out an auditory path that transcends labels. This album stands as an embodiment of Morthond's early ethos: to defy the norm and venture into uncharted territories of sonic expression. The experimental nature of the album invites the listener to relinquish preconceived notions and embrace the unknown. Each sonic element serves a purpose -- from the echoing whispers to the evocative textures -- creating a composition that resonates with thought-provoking depth. Urashima's reissue transforms Death Time into a tangible experience. The vinyl format adds an organic richness to the album's soundscape, inviting listeners to immerse themselves fully in Morthond's world. Death Time isn't merely a collection of tracks; it's a passage through the creative psyche of BJ Nilsen and the birth of Morthond. It captures a moment of artistic inception, where experimental ideas are given voice, and darkly ethereal atmospheres are conjured. This reissue isn't a mere resurrection; it's an invitation to rediscover the avant-garde essence of Morthond. Death Time remains a testament to the enduring power of experimental music to provoke thought and emotion. BJ Nilsen's visionary approach is evident in every sonic layer, making this vinyl reissue a commemoration of artistic exploration and a testament to the ongoing evolution of Morthond's sonic legacy." - Urashima

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
