Magic Sword are an American electronic trio from Boise, Idaho. They are known for wearing cloaks and masks during their performances, so as not to reveal their faces or bodies.
Das Mörtal begins his adventure in Berlin, a few years ago. Inspired by artists such as Steve Moore and Aphex Twin, the producer develops a sound that is both brooding and nostalgic, mixing expertly influences ranging from German techno to vintage horror and sci-fi soundtracks. 2014 is a busy year for Das Mörtal as he composes music for a short film (Naissance d’un zombie) and releases the EP Hotline Miami II, issued by Lisbon Lux Records. He also releases his first music video, "La Pussy". Launched on Halloween, the clip receives a great deal of attention on influential music blogs. He performs in several Festivals (Osheaga, MEG, Off de Québec and FME) and tours Europe in opening for Perturbator in sold out venues. In 2015, following the success of his EP Never Forgotten, the producer releases ...Now, a single which contributes to his ascension on digital platforms where he has accumulated more than 500 000 plays. In 2016, Das Mörtal launches Risking My Life, a collaboration with the Canadian duo Ghost Twin, which receives accolades from several influential blogs. Risking My Life is the first excerpt of a full-length album to be released in 2017. He also plays at the prestigious French festival Les Transmusicales, where he is warmly welcomed. Das Mörtal released his album Always Loved on June 9 2017, between synthwave, new wave and techno. Come 2019, Das Mörtal reissued his Hotline Miami II in a deluxe edition, and is working on his next full-length album.
