The long-awaited release of the MORTAL SIN DVD "Out of the Darkness" finally hits Sydney, Australia on Saturday, July 17 with the official launch at The Annandale Hotel — the venue where the DVD was shot. The concert features MORTAL SIN, DAYSEND (who just signed to Metal Blade Records in North America), LYCANTHIA, and THE DEAD REPUBLIC (ex-ANIMISM). Tickets are just $15, available at the door.
The "Out of the Darkness" DVD track listing is as follows:
01. Out of the Darkness
02. My Nightmare
05. Rise or Fall
06. The Infantry Corps
07. All About You
08. I Am Immortal
09. Mayhemic Destruction
The DVD also features some rare footage of the band recording the classic album "Mayhemic Destruction" at EMI studios in Sydney in 1986. You will also find some cameo appearances and short clips from classic Australian bands SLAUGHTERLORD, ADDICTIVE, GRUNGEON and WHITE TRASH — bands that MORTAL SIN members have previously appeared in. A surprise mystery gig is also hidden on the DVD as a metal "egg." Another bonus on the DVD is two film clips recorded in 1987 for the songs "Women in Leather" and "Voyage of the Disturbed".
The DVD is currently only being released in Australia and can only be bought directly from the band at email@example.com and is limited to only 1,000 copies and signed by the band. MORTAL SIN are currently looking for distribution in Europe, USA and Asia and will shortly be recording film clips for international release for the songs "Out of the Darkness", "My Nightmare" and "Deadman Walking". August will see the band touring the East Coast of Australia, then concentrating on finishing songs for the album "Far From Extinction" in the hope it can be recorded by the end of 2004.
