The Third and the Mortal (often styled The 3rd and the Mortal) is a Norwegian experimental metal-band, founded in the city Trondheim, Norway, in 1992 by Rune Hoemsnes, Finn Olav Holthe, Geir Nilssen, Trond Engum, and singer Kari Rueslåtten. The band started out as a doom metal band mixing distorted guitars and heavy drumming with clean guitars and vocals from Rueslåtten.
