MORTIIS - New Single Out In Few Days

  • Print

Norways dark industrial/electro masters Mortiis will issue the fourth free download single, "Geisteskrank", in support of their latest album, The Great Deceiver, which was released by Omnipresence Productions in March this year. The single will be out in a couple of days, exactly on 26th August. The song "Geisteskrank", which is actually a non-album track, began as a remix of The Great Deceiver's "The Shining Lamp Of God" before eventually mutating into its own song. "Geisteskrank" made its debut earlier this year as the soundtrack for Norwegian Grindhouse filmmaker Reinert Kiil's short film Vardøger. The track has never been available for download until now.
"The original title of "The Shining Lamp Of God" was "Zeitgeist" in its embryonic stages, and we eventually changed it", Mortiis said. "When "Geisteskrank" took form, it sort became this nod towards those early stages of that song, title wise if nothing else. Eventually Reinert Kiil began his mini film trilogy, and wanted to use "Geisteskrank" as the soundtrack for the first part, and that´s how it made its debut, so to speak." Kiil's Vardøger film will also be included in the free download. So, on 26th August head over HERE and get for free the single and Reinert Kiil's short film Vardøger. Link
