MORTIIS has been busy writing and recording new material for a new album, to be released 2007 through an as-yet-undetermined label (the band is no longer signed to Earache Records).
"The music so far is pretty varied," said frontman and band namesake Mortiis. "There's a bunch of really heavy stuff in there, probably the hardest stuff we've done so far, really guitar-driven shit. Then there's some really ambient sounding stuff, very drone-y and atmospheric, as well as some more electronic sounding songs too."
Mortiis notes that the songs are still in various stages of completion, leaving them open to many shifts and changes before the follow-up to "The Grudge" is recorded.
"It sounds really interesting right now," Mortiis said. "Some old vibes came back to us on some of the songs, some 'Smell of Rain' vibes and some 'Grudge' vibes and some new vibes. It's all totally dysfunctional and fucked up in one way or another. Diseased or hurt minds never really heal up, I guess, and because of that, all in all it's going to be a really hard, attacking kind of album with the moody stuff in between."
Some of the working titles are: "Zeitgeist", "Great Deceiver", "The Ugly Truth", "Looking Glass", "Doppelganger", "Sins of Mine", "Scolding the Burnt", "Live Forever" and "Road to Ruin".
Mortiis also recently completed remixes for ZOMBIE GIRL and DOPE STARS INC.'s upcoming releases.
