Mortiis Books US With Mushroomhead, New Album Coming

Mortiis band 2015

Norwegian avant-garde industrial artist Mortiis will make his long-awaited return to US shores this fall, joining Mushroomhead on the “The Devils Be Damned Tour” this October. The shows will be the first for the artist known for his early association with Emperor, and his namesake band in almost a decade. This will lead up to a new Mortiis album, The Great Deceiver.


Mortiis himself commented on the tour and the forthcoming new album:

The idea of going back on the road fills me with a weird sense of excitement and dread…” “The Great Deceiver is not far away – at long last – and we´re getting back out there, brushing off the dust and rust, to get ready for that, and whatever lies beyond.”

“It´s been one hell of a steep climb to where we´re at right now… and knowing me, I´ll step right off of that ledge, and plunge head first into the abyss.”

Ghost Cult has partnered up with the legendary Victory Records to send you and a friend to one of 4 dates of the upcoming tour from Canadian Symphonic Black Metal band Erimha, as they pillage the mid-western USA with the masked psychopaths in Mushroomhead.

The dates of the contest are as follows:

12/11 – St. Louis, MO @ Mad Magician

12/17 – Joliet, IL @ Mojoes

12/18 – Ft. Wayne, IN @ Pierre’s

12/21 – Grand Rapids, MI @ The Intersection

Winners will be chosen at random. Enter to Win by emailing Contest@GhostCultMag.com with your name, age, address, phone number and the specific show you want to go to. The prize includes one pair (2) of tickets to the shows listed above, and only covers entry into the concert. See below for disclaimer and other rules.

Erimha continues to gain attention from the metal masses, following an esteemed climb in the underground that led to their signing. They are hot on the heels of playing every date of last summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and are still out on the road supporting Reign Through Immortality (Victory).

Official Press Release:

Black metal unit Erimha have teamed up with their metal colleagues Mushroomhead for a US tour starting December 11th in St. Louis. Joining the trek are UnSaid Fate and Thira, bringing metal to the masses before concluding in Columbus, OH on December 26th.

We are more than eager to get back on the road, to us it's a war that we need to wage on ourselves and on the world. So join us, so we can channel our energies and fight together as one”, declares Erimha guitarist Kthien.
Turning over new fans on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival this past summer, Erimha continue to support their current album Reign Through Immortality. Kthiem affirms the kinship, “One of the things you always seem to forget when you go on the road is the people you get to meet. We have been lucky to meet some amazing people, some become friends, others more than that and now we are lucky to go back out on tour with our brothers from             Mushroomhead”.
