Morgoth To Issue Live Album
Oh yeah, bitch-ass.
Resurrected German death metal dudes Morgoth have announced that they will drop a live album and DVD called Cursed To Live on June 25.
The band’s first live offering will be released by Century Media Records. The audio tracks were mixed at Unisound Studio in Sweden with Dan Swanö (who, of course, has worked with Opeth, Katatonia, and the almighty Dissection).
A press release claims “Cursed To Live is the documentation of Morgoth’s ongoing 20th-anniversary celebration of the band’s all-time classic album Cursed (released by Century Media Records in 1991). It will be released on CD, a limited DVD+2CD as well as a limited deluxe 2LP.
“The live show featured on the album was recorded at the band’s triumphant show headlining Way Of Darkness festival 2011, at which Morgoth performed an extensive set of 15 songs, with the main focus on the songs off Cursed.”
I can dig it. I never got into these guys hardcore. I may have been given a burn by The Goat at some point. But I will definitely be checking this shit out, and maybe grabbing a copy of Cursed.
Hey — I am not afraid to admit when I don’t know a band. You can’t know ‘em all, right? You can try, but you can’t know ‘em all.
Morgoth will return to North American ground by appearing at Baltimore’s acclaimed Maryland Deathfest on May 27.
The band will also perform at Neurotic Deathfest (The Netherlands), Brutal Assault (Czech Republic) as well as the following events in Germany: Winternachtstraum (Arnsberg), Walpurgis Metal Dayz (Passau), Rock Harz (Ballenstedt) and Summer Breeze (Dinkelsbühl).
