’Tolling 13 Knell’, Mortuary Drape’s third full-length album, was originally released in 2000. Often regarded as one of the band’s strongest works, the album delivers an eerie concoction of evil metal riffing & dark occult atmosphere to unnerving effect. Now remastered with bonus tracks. On CD & double LP.

It was 1986 when Mortuary Drape was founded by the central core of three people, one of which is still in the band (Wildness Perversion).
Music and trends that inspired the founders are from the 'black metal' style with an esoteric-necromantic current both for the lyrics and for the stage design impact: they decided to baptize their style as 'black-occult metal'.
In 1987 they released first demo 'Necromancy', which gained a great response in the underground scene, a demo that in the years to come became an authentic cult for the lovers of this genre.
During the period from 1988 to the first half of 1991 the line-up stabilized and also saw the releasse of the band's second demo, 'Doom Return'.
