Perfectly Defect is an album by Mortiis, released 10 October 2010 as a free internet download. Here is 2011 digital download edition with bonus tracks
Raster is putting out an album, Decadent Yet Depraved, from a new duo called Belief Defect. The identity of Belief Defect hasn't been made public, but we're told it's a pair of established artists "familiar with the underground music scene and how its skeptical nature can also be an obstacle to overcome." Decadent Yet Depraved's intense experimental sound, inspired by each members' longtime love of abstract electronic music, would appear to fit in with Byetone's recently retooled Raster imprint. The album is described as "a soundtrack for this apocalyptic time [and] an uncompromising reflection on the state of mankind and its uncertain future." It's due for CD and digital release in late August, about a week after Belief Defect play their first ever live show at Berlin Atonal. A double-vinyl version is expected in October.
The first the world heard of Mortiis was his bassplaying in the norweigian BM band Emperor. With them he released "Wrath of the Tyrant" demo, "Emperor" Mini album, "As the Shadows Rise" 7". After that he decided to start a solo project, simply called Mortiis.
Having discovered the virtue of tunes, he crammed his second full length album The Smell of Rain with pounding melodies that bring to mind everyone from Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails through to the chanting choirs of Enigma. With the MTV-friendly likes of "Parasite God," "You Put a Hex On Me," and "Smell the Witch" casting their industrial spell, Mortiis soon found himself a superstar on the alternative goth scene.
