Mortiis Reveals "The Great Corrupter" Remix Album

Mortiis has revealed further details on the complete packaging of the upcoming "The Great Corrupter" release, available worldwide on April 21st via Omnipresence Prodcution.

"The Great Corrupter" is a collection of previously unreleased tracks, as well as deconstructed and corrupted versions of songs from last year’s "The Great Deceiver" by Die Krupps, John Fryer, Godflesh, Merzbow, Apoptygma Berzerk, In Slaughter Natives, Raison D´Etre, and Pig. Previously unreleased material is also included from some of the original recording sessions featuring Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails).

“I went pretty crazy on this one and reached out to so many awesome artists, from people I knew, to people I happened to come across on YouTube and whose material I liked” says Mortiis, adding ”As each reworked track came in, I got more and more excited, and I just kept reaching out to people asking if they´d be interested in being part of the project. I guess I got hooked on the high that it gives, to hear your music twisted and mutilated in any conceivable way”.

Mortiis further adds: “The LP has completely different art from the CD. I always liked the idea of creating variations of the same thing. We were able to license a couple of awesome Hieronymus Bosch paintings for that one. The CD is a homage to an age of film long gone by. One of my personal favorites. If you do some research, I am sure you will figure it out.”
