THE LATEST, LONG-AWAITED FULL STUDIO ALBUM OF BLACKENED OCCULT HEAVY METAL FROM THE ITALIAN LEGENDS. ON GREY VINYL.
 
Cult band Mortuary Drape was formed in Italy in 1986 as a trio, including the long-standing/sole-remaining member, band founder and visionary Wildness Perversion. Highly inspired by the dark arts & combining early influences from bands such as Mercyful Fate & Celtic Frost, Mortuary Drape developed their own unique style, defining themselves as black occult metal & releasing the demo ‘Necromancy’ in 1987 which spread their name throughout the underground; though it was not until 1992 that their first official release surfaced, with ‘Into the Drape’. This was followed by the debut full-length album, the classic ‘All the Witches Dance’ in 1994. Since then Mortuary Drape has been revered for their influential and pioneering work in the firm establishment of global black metal.
 
A further progression from the 2022 mini-album ‘Wisdom – Vibration – Repent’, which gave a firm taste of what was to come after signing with Peaceville Records, the Italians return with ‘Black Mirror’ for a new dose of ritualistic blasphemy. ‘Black Mirror’ is Mortuary Drape’s sixth full-length studio album, and presents a spellbinding, occult-draped journey featuring haunting passages and dark yet melodic vintage metal mastery, bringing to mind acts such as Mercyful Fate with their eerie, classic metal-rooted compositions and atmospherics, expertly crafted and delivered with the band’s own distinguishable injection of wicked intent.
 
The cover art for ‘Black Mirror’ appears courtesy of Misanthropic Art.
 
This edition of ‘Black Mirror’ is presented on grey vinyl, including printed inner sleeve.
