Norwegian industrial rockers, Mortiis, are now streaming two songs off their newly-announced album The Great Corrupter, a remix album with new renditions of songs off the 2016 release, The Great Deceiver.
Due out on April 21st, The Great Corrupter includes song from the previous album, deconstructed and masterfully “corrupted” by Chris Vrenna, Rhys Fulber, Die Krupps, John Fryer, GODFLESH, Merzbow, Apoptygma Berzerk, In Slaughter Natives, Raison D´Etre, Je$us Loves Amerika, PIG, and many more. It will also contain unreleased material from the original recording sessions.
“The tracks on this album are very broad,” said Mortiis. “They range from retro sounding, heavy industrial to very deep ambient type music to electronic/industrial club type shuff.”
Mortiis will also release a free download of the ferocious remix by German industrial legends Die Krupps, as a taste of things to come. The single will also feature a non-album remix by club heroes Leæther Strip. The download becomes available on January 23rd via Bandcamp.
Moreover, Mortiis have announced a 9-date March 2017 UK co-headlining tour with PIG aka industrial pioneer, Raymond Watts.
Said the group of the tour: “We always have a great time in the UK, so being able to go out on tour there again, and with old heroes PIG no less, makes it even more exciting! What makes this tour even more special, to me personally anyway, is the fact that we just remixed each other. PIG are on our upcoming remix album The Great Corrupter so it´s a double whammy!”
