A weekend in Reykjavik for a MORTIIS photo shoot on friday and the Reykjavik Goth Night at Gaukurinn on Saturday. The event was really cool, but more about that later when I can check the pics from the venue. Need to sort out pics from the shoot first.
We got some obstacles and restrictions (lights, weather, temperature etc etc xD), but we had the most awesome help from Tómas and Anna, who drove us around and assisted when needed:) So we worked with what we got and I think we did alright. What a fantastic country!!!
“Era 1 Performance.
A re-interpretation of the 1994 album “Ånden som Gjorde Opprør”.”

Amongst other cool merch in the MORTIIS webstore you can find a few posters. This one is a photo I took at the Cold Meat Industry 30 year anniversary festival i Stockholm for about a year ago when he performed the “Era 1 ” set for the first time in ages.
It really does make a great poster:D The “Era 1” show was awesome btw. MORTIIS has done some extensive touring the past year and there´s still concerts coming up if you have missed out. Dates & venues HERE.

Havard Ellefsen/MORTIIS – the head troll of Dark Dungeon Music performed “Ånden som gjorde Upprør” (Era 1) with some additions and modifications. Extreme amounts of darkness and smoke. Good for the atmosphere, bad for the pictures:)
“I don’t just want to do the record as it was back in 1994, but rather excavate it from 1994 and drag it into the new light of the current world, while retaining the atmosphere of the original sound,” – Mortiis [bravewords.com]
