As previously posted, MORTAD released a new video clip ,“Waste Of My Rage” which was sponsored by the Alchemy apparel clothing brand and produced by the Manchester-based video production company Video Ink. More than a dozen actors were cast for the video, including Collette Von Tora, who agreed to have her head shaved for this video shoot.
MORTAD‘s forthcoming full-length debut album, “The Myth Of Purity”, was recorded last October with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, EVILE) and is scheduled for an early 2012 release.
MORTAD was formed in 2009 by Iranian vocalist Somi Arian , whose lyrics take aim at the hypocrisy of religion and the government as well as seeking inner truth and strength in the face of such oppression.
MORTAD released a music video and an EP, entitled “Pandemic Paranoia”, in early 2011. This effort brought the band immense attention on the social media sites, placing the group as the No. 1 metal band on ReverbNation London metal chart, and attracting over 40,000 Facebook fans.
DJ Blackdiamond of FIREBRAND ROCK RADIO has conducted an interview with vocalist Somi Arian when the band was getting ready to perform at Hammerfest IV. The interview will be published soon on Metal Shock Finland. Stay tuned!
