SECRETS OF MY KINGDOM:RETURN TO DIMENSIONS UNKNOWN
Created back in the 1990s and originally released in a highly limited edition form, Secrets Of My Kingdom provides an unforgettable insight into the otherworldly creations of dark ambient godfather Mortiis. An utterly unique and compelling collection of writings and illustrations (created by a number of talented artists), it significantly fleshes out the rich universe that is glimpsed within those early musical releases.
Considered a legendary tome by fans, the rare original changing hands for literally hundreds of dollars today. Considerably expanded with 100 pages of new material, this ambitious 240 page large format (30x21cm) hardback book contains the original in its entirety as well as previously unseen text and illustrations, an extensive new interview with Mortiis, plus words from peers, the book’s illustrators, musicians from the growing dungeon synth movement (including Mark Riddick, David Thiérrée, Albert Mudrian, Juha Vuorma, Proscriptor, Balrog, Forgotten Kingdoms, Chaucerian Myth and more). The book is due to appear March 10th 2018. It will be released in both standalone format and as a signed box set including embossed box, exclusive shirt, a recreation of the legendary 1993 Født…booklet, 12 piece set of art prints and certificate of authenticity signed by Mortiis himself.
