Norway's legendary eccentric artist MORTIIS has set "The Grudge" as the title of his new album, due in September through Earache Records.
The follow-up to 2001's critically acclaimed "The Smell of Rain" was recorded over a six-month period at Silvertone Studios in Fredrickstad, Norway by Mortiis (vocals, synths, programming, sound design), Levi Gawron (guitar), Asmund Sveinunggard (guitar) and Leo Troy (drums) and has been co-produced by Vegard Blomberg. Mastering duties will take place at Norway's premier facility, The Living Room, in Oslo.
Mortiis himself is saying very little about "The Grudge" at the moment other than "It may have taken a while, but we all feel that it was right to spend the last couple of years on the album. We're now working to meet deadlines and I think people will be mighty surprised again."
"The Grudge" will contain ten new tracks, including "Decadent And Desperate" and "Broken Skin", with all the songs drawing from an eclectic mix of inspirations, emotions and experiences,
Once "The Grudge" is completed, MORTIIS will be spending the summer months rehearsing for their mammoth upcoming autumn European tour, details of which will be announced in due course.
