The undisputed inventor of dungeon synth, Mortiis is set to release “Spirit Of Rebellion” which is in fact a re-interpreted expansion and continuation of the 1994 Era I classic “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør”. “Spirit Of Rebellion” will be released on CD, vinyl and digital format and physical pre-orders will be available from Dead Seed Productions.

Says Mortiis about the release: “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 taster of things to come for the re-interpreted music of “Spirit Of Rebellion”.

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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. 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 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
