Rowe Productions have just released a re-issue of the classic Mortification - "Live Planetarium" video on DVD and it is now available!
Steve Rowe's back-cover blurb best sums up this DVD: "I guess many bands don't realise it when they create ground-breaking music. According to most who love this band, our early era was our definitive time. The combination of Jayson Sherlock's blistering drum skills, Mick Carlisle's rhythm genius and my ability to smile while playing death metal was, and is, amazingly hailed by fans still to this day.
Unfortunately, Jayson never toured with the band internationally, choosing to leave the group in ealy '93. Mick and myself toured the US mid that year with Vengeance Rising drummer Johnny Vasquez. When returning from the trip, Jayson briefly regrouped with us to record this highlight live material. Possibly this concert footage is the finest moment in Mortification history.
Drummer Phil Gibson replaced Jayson and, following the recording of the Blood World album, toured Europe with us in '94. Included on this DVD is full length concert footage, Scrolls Of The Megilloth and Grind Planetarium concept clips, as well as exclusive interview footage. Bonus material includes a number of zany snippets of myself at my old rental home in '93, my 28th birthday party in the studio recording Post Momentary Affliction and an interesting underground show in Andernack, Germany, in '94, with Phil Gibson on drums".
