In a few hours the undisputed inventor of dungeon synth, MORTIIS, is leaving the stunning Norwegian fjords to embark on his second US headline tour.
The king of dungeon synth will be supported by avant-garde black metal hybrid T.O.M.B. The 15-date strong US tour kicks off on 24th January @ The Whiskey Junction in Minneapolis and finishes on 09th February @ The Graduate in San Luis Obispo (CA).
He comments: “I’m very much looking forward to returning and touring North America again. This being a sort of ‘part 2’ of the US tour I did earlier this year, of course with different cities, but hopefully it will turn out to be as cool as the last one I did. On the last US run we jumped a fence in a park and sawed down a bunch of cool looking trees, threw them into a van before anyone knew what happened, then rushed them back to the venue for ‘post-processing, a couple of hours before the show. I guess this will also be part 2 of ‘how are we going to get hold of those creepy trees?’ that we have on stage as part of the show. So yeah, another adventure awaits. That’s for sure!”.

On Friday January 24th MORTIIS will release “Spirit Of Rebellion” – a re-interpreted expansion and continuation of the 1994 Era I classic “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør” – via Omnipresence Productions / Dead Seed Productions.
In the last weeks, MORTIIS shared 7 episodes of an in-depth interview conducted by well-known UK journalist and publisher Dayal Patterson (Cult Never Dies). Watch the full video interview below
Recently the visionary Nordic artist unleashed the video for the song “A Dark Horizon”: https://youtu.be/Yapjm9VrZYQ
The bleak looking video was directed by Finnish director Ari Savonen who MORTIIS also teamed up with for the “Visions of an Ancient Future” video (https://youtu.be/j-RCM61Sb5s).
The godfather of dungeon synth comments: “I had to fend off a lot of demons to get to this point. They’ll be back, they always come back, but at least my vision is no longer clouded…When I was working on re-interpreting my old music for the Cold Meat Industry festival in Stockholm almost two years ago, I had no idea that I´d eventually create an (almost) new record, nor that a section of it would be used for my first Dungeon Synth video since 1996. But here we are”.
“Spirit Of Rebellion” is available on CD, vinyl and digital format. Order your copy now:
