  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Back in stock at last!

    This CD features all 12 songs from the originals sessions, including 4 rare and unreleased songs.

    Originally released in 2011, as a tour and mailorder only CD, limited to 500 copies and featuring only 8 of the 12 songs from the recording sessions, Perfectly Defect, has remained hard to find, and somewhat mysterious. For a limited time, it was available as a free download for anyone that would sign up for our mailing list. As a gesture of respect and gratitude towards our fans, as well as a gigantic "Fuck You" to the record industry, that had done little else than embezzle, trick and rob the band blind, up until that point.

    Perfectly Defect complete 12 song tracklist:

    1. Closer to the End
    2. Perfectly Defect
    3. The Sphere
    4. Sensation of Guilt
    5. Sole Defeat
    6. Thieving Bastards
    7. The Punished
    8. Halo of Arms

Mortiis Oslo, Norway

Joined Emperor 1991.
Fired from Emperor on grounds of a "bad attitude" late 1992.
Formed Mortiis next day.
Planned recordings in Transylvania 1993.
That did not happen.
Released several solo albums in the 90´ies & weirding out the music industry with his prosthetic mask.
Oh those yonder days of media hypocrisy.
Became band. Band died.
Broke ribs, dreams and industry shackles, but remained free.
