Mörk Gryning  

Mörk Gryning (the name translates to "dark dawn") was formed in 1993 by the duo of Goth Gorgon and Kimera, the pair remaining the core of the band until early 2004 when Kimera departed. Their early work is more in the traditional black metal camp, but by the time of their most recent album (Pieces Of Primal Expressionism) the band had progressed a good deal, incorporating death and even some progressive elements with a black metal base, forging a relatively unique and quite accomplished sound. Expressionism is a well-developed, mature post-black metal album that is well deserving of the critical acclaim it has garnered.

The band announced its breakup in January 2005, as founding member Goth Gorgon had lost interest in extreme music.
