OSLO – Mortiis’ The Great Corrupter album will officially see release this Friday, April 21, alongside the official release of Merzbow’s remix of “Bleed Like You.”
The Merzbow remix will be available exclusively via Bandcamp and will also include the Prurient mix of “Road to Ruin.”
Merzbow joins some of the most well-known names in genres spanning Industrial Rock to Deep Experimental Ambient in deconstructing and “corrupting” tracks from last year’s The Great Deceiver album, resulting in tracks that have taken on entirely new lives. The Great Corrupter also includes previously unreleased material from some of the original mixing sessions featuring Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails).
“A lot of work has gone into this project, from the tracks themselves to packaging,” Mortiis said. “We are excited to finally make it available to fans.”
