Black metal pioneers Mayhem are teaming up for a full European run this Autumn with the inventor of dungeon synth, Mortiis.

The extensive EU tour aptly named “Northern Ritual” starts in late September and runs throughout October visiting 14 different countries across Europe

Mayhem commented: “We are proud to announce leg 2 of the very successful Daemon European tour! For this leg we bring Norwegian cult act Mortiis, who should be no stranger to you all.”

Mortiis comments: “The time has come for The Old One to join forces with The Ancient Ones – on my next Era I run I will join Mayhem on their Northern Ritual tour this autumn! I hope you are ready?!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
