Mortiis was formerly the bassist and primary lyricist for Emperor (circa the self-titled EP). He formed this band the day after he parted ways with Emperor because he wasn't into black metal anymore.

Mortiis' music is generally seen as being divided into three distinct eras; ambient on all 90s releases, darkwave/synthpop on "The Smell of Rain" and industrial rock from "The Grudge" onwards.
