In collaboration with Funeral Industries, Mortiis is reissuing the classic 1994 and 1995 albums “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør” and “Keiser av en Dimensjon Ukjent”. Pre-orders are being taken right now via the official Mortiis webstore.
“Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør” (The Spirit Who Rebelled) is the second full-length album by Norwegian solo artist Mortiis, released a year after his debut album, “Født til å Herske” (1993). The follow-up album is “Keiser av en Dimensjon Ukjent” (Emperor of a Dimension Unknown), released in 1995.
In order to make the reissues as special as possible, both re-releases have been remastered by Jules Seifert, in close collaboration with Mortiis, and exclusive new artwork was created by renowned French artist David Thierree, based on ideas by Mortiis.
Both albums come in 3 different vinyl colors, plus include 12″ sized inserts, in limited editions. The “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør” vinyl (available here) comes in 200x silver, 100x purple, and 450x black. The “Keiser av en Dimensjon Ukjent” (available here) comes in 200x gold, 100x dark green, and 450x black. All formats include a free digital download.
The release date for both albums have been set to November 3rd.
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.
