For the first time ever, Mortiis will be performing shows in South America during the ‘Era 1 South American Mini Tour’. The following shows have been booked for November:
- 14/11 – Santiago, Chile
- 15/11 – Buenos Aires, Argentina
- 16/11 – La Paz, Bolivia
- 17/11 – Quito, Ecuador
During the gigs Mortiis will do a special performance of “Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør”, his second full-length album that was released in 1994, a year after his debut album, “Født til å Herske”.
Era 1 refers to all works previous to “The Smell of Rain”. All of the Era I albums were notably composed entirely on synthesizers, creating a sound that Mortiis described as “dark dungeon music”. The last album of this era, “The Stargate”, went a step further by introducing a wider range of instruments including acoustic guitars, flutes and dark vocals; mainly provided by Sarah Jezebel Deva.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
