Synthwave producer Das Mörtal recently released his latest single, ‘PIECES’ featuring Dance With The Dead, on the 9th of August. The full LP is set to release on the 13th of October via Lisbon Lux Records. The enigmatic and versatile synthwave producer has already received support from the likes of METAL Magazine, Ottawa Life Magazine, MetalSucks, Cult MTL, Le Canal Auditif, DIFFUS Magazine, VOLT Magazine, and Brutal Resonance to name but a few. All the while, his music earned Most Added New Release on the American college radio chart Top 200 NACC, received spins on CJSW Radio, and was even featured on the prominent NewRetroWave Youtube channel.
‘PIECES’ is a modern track with an unmistakably retro feel. The lead guitar solo makes for a very memorable song, while the 80’s style beat thumps over gated pads and a deep growling bassline. Evoking sounds of ‘80s sci-fi movie soundtracks, it serves a strong dose of action-packed nostalgia reminiscent of Kap Bambino, Crystal Castles, Perturbator, and DEADLIFE. With nihilistic lyrics on the repetitive nature of life, and intricate production, It’s a song perfect for both sweaty boiler rooms and recreational listening.
Das Mörtal had this to say: “Featuring Tony Kim from Dance with the Dead, who was the last person I saw before the world went into slumber, PIECES is the result of the mind’s inability to move forward during that moment in time.”
