Mortiis Announces New Zealand Shows

Friday 16th February, 2018 12:17PM

Norwegian black metal badass Mortiis is venturing to Aotearoa for the first time in August, playing shows in Auckland and Wellington. Mortiis cut his musical teeth playing bass in seminal black metal band Emperor before releasing as slew of stylistically varied solo albums, which covered musical ground such as industrial and dark ambient and arguably paved the way for today’s thriving dungeon synth scene. His forthcoming appearance will see him performing a reinterpretation of his classic 1994 sophomore album Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør, which translates to "The Spirit Who Rebelled". Details below…

Wednesday 1st August - Valhalla, Wellington
Thursday 2nd August - Whammy Backroom, Auckland

Press Release

For the First Time.. Mortiis (Nor) is coming to New Zealand for Two Shows Only!

With a very Special Performance of the Cold Meat Industry Classic Ånden Som Gjorde Opprør on show…

After Mortiis left Emperor, the Norwegian black metal band he was part of starting, in late 1992, he started Mortiis as a solo project, and released a number of solo records between 1993 and 1999. Reinvented as a proper band, Mortiis released several albums and toured fairly consistently for the past 15 years, and has shared the stage with a variety of artists and bands spanning genres ranging from black metal, to punk to industrial and EBM. Some of the bands Mortiis has toured with are Danzig, Behemoth, Apoptygma Berzerk, Combichrist, Christian Death, Mushroomhead, The Genitorturers, Deathstars, etc.

Mortiis has recently made a Return to the Era 1 style of music, and starting in November with the Cold Meat Industry and Messe des Morts festivals, will perform a solo 2018 reinterpretation of the 1994 album Ånden som Gjorde Opprør, on Saturday 21st of April, 2018 in Athens. “I don’t just want to do the record as it was back in 1994, but rather excavate it from 1994 and drag it into the new light of the current world, while retaining the atmosphere of the original sound,” - Mortiis.
