OSLO – Pre-orders for all editions of the upcoming Mortiis release, The Great Corrupter, are now available.
The Great Corrupter will officially be available worldwide on April 21.
The Great Corrupter is a collection of previously unreleased tracks, as well as deconstructed and “corrupted” versions of songs from last year’s the The Great Deceiver by some of the most well-known names in genres spanning Industrial Rock to Deep Experimental Ambient. The previously unreleased material comes from some of the original recording sessions featuring Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails).
The Great Corruptor’s visual presentation will be equally remarkable, with each format presented as its own art package with collectible artwork. The vinyl will be limited to 500 copies in five different vinyl colors, all limited to 99 copies each, with a unique center-opening gatefold. Four vinyl colors will come with its own exclusive poster, only available with that specific color, and one with a large woven patch.
The CD version will be made up of eight-panel, DVD sized Digipak, containing a 24-page booklet of exclusive photos. The two-CD set will also include additional remixes exclusive to the deluxe CD package. This package will include download cards for three previously censored videos. This deluxe version will also be limited to 500, after which the CD will be available in a less elaborate standard format. The CD version will also be available digitally.
Each Jeetus the Feetus figure measures approximately16cm x 6cm x 6cm and is handmade and handpainted by Claudia Rindler, the artist who made the same Mortiis fetus that appeared in the “The Shining Lamp of God” and “Doppelganger” videos. This bundle is limited to 20 copies.
