♫ Morbid ♫

I.
Followed with a fascination of war, horror and violence, Pelle Ohlin formed a band in the early 80's.
Due to some problems, this band split-up and Pelle made a new band called "Ohlin Metal".
Unfortunately, this band didn't last very long too.
--------
II.
He met Gehenna (Johan Hagstrom) in a record stores and they decided to form a band called Armageddon.
(only fragments are preserved though).
Few times later, Pelle met Slator (Mats Gonzales) and Anders Gonzales.
In early 1985, the band changes its name to Scapegoat. (logo made by Anders Gonzales).
--------
III.
Once again, the band met some problems.
In 1986 the band evolved into Morbid :
Dead (Pelle Ohlin) : singer
Gehenna : guitar
Klacke (Marcus Klack) : guitar
Slator : Bass
Gehenna's friends : drum.

Later, Dr. Schitz (Jens Näsström) joined the band and replaced Slator on bass, TG (Torbjörn Gräslund Tege) took Klacke's position as guitarist.
Drutten (Lars-Göran Petrov) joined the band as drummer.
First live appearrances of Morbid startedin spring of 1987 especially at Birkagarden and Ultrahuset.
Summer of 1987, Napoleon Pukes (Ulf Andreas Cederlund) replaced TG on guitar.
On December 5th 1987, Morbid entered the studio to record their legendary demo : December Moon.
Around 1987/1988, Gehenna left the band and before the end of January Dead moved to Norway and joined Mayhem.
John Scarisbrick joined Morbid as singer and Zoran as guitarist.
In 1988 they recorded the demo : Last supper.
Unfortunately, without Dead and Gehenna it was not really Morbid anymore...
--------
IV.
In  the fall of 1990, Dead, Dr. Schitz and Gehenna finally got together for a rehearsal, their first for almost three years.
They planed to record a single which would includea new song called : "I love the dead" and a new version of "Deathexecution".
Dead was very serious to reform Morbid and was probably to leave Mayhem.
Unfortunately, he commited suicide on April 8th 1991.
(from : Year of the goat).

We know :
-  One (or more) "Ohlin metal" tape(s) exists.
- A scapegoat logo
- Few Morbid rehearsals
- A lot of live recordings
- Few live videos
The first band logo was inspired by a comic called "The tombs of Dracula", created in 1972.
(There is a picture of Per and Hellhammer reading this comic.)

From The Dark Past...

Tjena alla monsterdiggare!

This blog is dedicated to Pelle Ohlin & Øystein Aarseth.
I started to collect in 1997 and created this blog in 2009/10 (In a different web address at the time).
It is made as a tribute to them for all fans, friends, families, etc...
Also it is made about Morbid and Mayhem from 1984 to nowadays.

--> It is not easy to get some "news"/unseen photos, anecdotes, stories, etc...
Some people are kind enough to share with me what they have, so the least that can I do is to thank and mention them.

If you use these pictures on your blog, personal website, tumblr, facebook, etc, etc.... mention the real owners or the source too, that what is called Respect!
Thank you. <-->
