MORTIFICATION vocalist/bassist Steve Rowe has issued the following update:
"The big news this month is that everything ever released by Nuclear Blast from 1992 to 2002 is being reissued by Polish label Metal Mind Productions. Under license from Nuclear Blast, eight CDs will be reissued in deluxe digipak format packed full of extras like bonus songs, photos, media clippings, linear notes and complete new layouts. I have been completely involved with the art direction with each CD. We will have these available through the Soundmass.com store within the next weeks. The reissues include 'Scrolls Of The Megilloth', 'Post Momentary Affliction', 'Bloodworld', 'Primitive Rhythm Machine', 'EnVision EvAngelene', 'Triumph Of Mercy', 'Hammer Of God' and 'The Silver Cord Is Severed'. For all you avid collectors, I will be making a very special price for all the people who order the entire set of eight CDs. No one is more excited about these re-issues than myself. Metal Mind have been around for 20 years and have been really great to work with these past weeks in getting all these digipaks just perfect!
"The 'Conquer The World' DVD is also in the process of being reissued through Metal Mind in Region 0 format, which means it can be watched anywhere in the world. The artwork has been redone with the classic logo replacing the not-so-popular sword logo. The 'Silver Cord Is Severed' will also feature the classic logo. The reissue of the 'Conquer The World' DVD will also contain bonus footage from the 2002 Black Stump Festival, with classic songs 'Grind Planetarium' and 'Brutal Warfare' included.
"Talking of DVDs, the 'Live Humanitarian' DVD will finally be finished in edit by early next month. No fixed release date just as yet, though. I have seen some of the final edits and the 'Live Humanitarian' DVD will be the finest MORTIFICATION live release to date. With a seven digital camera shoot and 5.1 Dolby surround sound, this is a MASSIVE production, 18 months in the making. It outdoes 'Live Planetarium' hands down for sound and picture quality. It will also have some bonus footage including classic songs and on-tour antics from last year's 'Live Humanitarian' European tour."
