Today MORTIIS unleashes a brand new album teaser for ‘Spirit Of Rebellion’.

The cover artwork for “Spirit Of Rebellion” was created by French visual artist & fantasy illustrator David Thiérrée ( who is also known for his work with BEHEMOTH, PRIMORDIAL, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM.

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” will be released in CD, Vinyl and digital format. Pre-orders are available now.
