The undisputed inventor of dungeon synth, MORTIIS, has revealed the cover artwork for his forthcoming album “Spirit Of Rebellion”. The album artwork was created by French visual artist & fantasy illustrator David Thiérrée (https://www.davidthierree.com) who is also known for his work with Behemoth, Primordial, Wolves In The Throne Room.
“Spirit Of Rebellion” – a re-interpreted 2 track long expansion and continuation of the 1994 Era I classic “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør” – is penned for release on 24th January 2020 via Omnipresence Production / Dead Seed Productions.
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.”
Check out the recently released video clip for “Visions of an Ancient Future” which gives a first taste of things to come for the re-interpreted music of ”Spirit Of Rebellion”.
“Spirit Of Rebellion” will be released in CD, Vinyl and digital format. Pre-orders are available now.
