Mortemia releases new official lyric video for ”Devastation Bound” featuring Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum, The Dark Side of the Moon), strong aural beauty of pure gothic divinity!

After 11 years of silence Norwegian multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist Morten Veland is once more active with his solo project Mortemia, this time with a brand new concept. ‘The Pandemic Pandemonium Sessions’ is a series of songs  released on a monthly basis, each song featuring a well known and highly profiled singer in metal. After the releases of the latest fifth song, he releases the new official lyric video for the ”Devastation Bound” featuring Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum, The Dark Side of the Moon).

Madeleine Liljestam (Eleine), Marcela Bovio (Stream of Passion, Ayreon, MaYaN, The Gentle Storm, Dark Horse White Horse), Alessia Scolletti (Temperance) and Liv Kristine (ex-Theatre of Tragedy, ex-Leaves Eyes) were the four first special guests on this project. And Melissa Bonny is the fifth one.


Here is the part of the review for the official premiere of the song from Journalist and Owner of the magazine Vladimir Cincovic:


”Melodic parts of the song are also very strong and special – adding to the Mellissa excellent vocals more power and more aural beauty. The passage from piano part to the crushing fast riffs at some point of the song, is just done in a masterful way – that passage added more tension to the song and quality. And this is the fifth unique gothic experience of true divine gothic symphony from paradise. Dive into the aural beauty, that awakes all gothic senses.”


Morten Veland states this about the collaboration and new song:

”I am proud and honored to introduce Melissa Bonny as my special guest for ‘The Pandemic Pandemonium Sessions’. The fifth song is entitled ‘Devastation Bound’, and will be available on all digital platforms on the 8th of October 2021. I discovered Melissa’s musical works a few years back and I have been following her career since then. Melissa has an absolutely beautiful voice that has the power of turning every song she performs into pure gold. I feel truly privileged and thankful to have Melissa onboard this project, and I am really looking forward to sharing this song with you all.”


Melissa Bonny states this about the song and collaboration:

”The musical universe of Mortemia is truly fantastic. I discovered Morten’s creations earlier this year and I was very enthusiastic when he asked me to record for him. This song really transports you and gathers so many emotions and power…! I am very proud to be part of it and excited to share it with the world.”
