There are at least several bands named Mordecai: 1) A ramshackle noise rock band from Butte, Montana. The kids in Mordecai can't be a day over 22. They live in Butte, Montana. According to their MySpace comments, they spend a lot of time drinking beer on the street.
Their name could be a reference to the hawk in The Royal Tennenbaums or some unselfconscious attempt at being hard. The only thing that's certain is that their music has absolutely no right to be this great. Their tracks sound like the lost recordings of some forgotten early-'80s No Wave act, sprung fully formed from the loins of the lost Asheton brother. Are they the Shaggs or the second coming? 2) Mordecai is a Melodic Black Metal band from Finland - formed in 1998.
They have released one little EP, that was featured on a split album and they often have a strong portrayal of a sensational, cold and dark view on Christianity. The only thing recorded was a four track song on the EP entitled "Immortal Souls - Mordecai" released in 1998 and later split as "Divine Wintertime/Through The woods, Towards The Dawn". It often reflects stories of how Christ saved them in a cold, winter atmosphere. For a while they were on a label called Little Rose Productions but, went fully independent.Make Mordecai Playlist
