Recorded in October 1993 at Australia’s iconic Black Stump Festival, Live Planetarium was the fourth Mortification release on Intense Records and their first live album. And what an incredible live show it was, almost flawlessly performed in front of a wild crowd! The set list is a selection of classic songs from their first 3 albums, capturing the diversity of the band’s vision. This is truly Mortification at their greatest, their innovative blend of extreme metal styles setting them apart from the crowd. Their intensity, energy and variation are perfectly captured on this recording – Steve’s thick bass and powerful voice, Michael’s sharp guitar chops and Jayson’s precise drumming – with the incredible production making every instrument clearly heard.
The original computer-generated front cover has been replaced by a brutal depiction of the band drawn by Troy Dunmire (who became Mortification’s go-to cover artist). This 2020 jewel case version of Live Planetarium also includes the studio version of Time Crusaders as a bonus track and an all-new layout – a 12-page booklet with alternate cover art, lyrics, an abundance of photos and an album history written by Scott Waters (Ultimatum/NoLifeTilMetal). This is a must for fans of this pioneering Aussie band and any true metal enthusiast.
