Resurrected German death metallers MORGOTH have issued the following update:
“Barge To Hell was a great way to end the past year of MORGOTH activities as well as to complete the original plans we had for the ‘Cursed’ reunion. We also had a lot of time for cocktails and talks on the cruise and discussed how to move forwards with the band in 2013…
“While we won’t make it as busy of a schedule as the past two years, we decided to remain available for a few casual shows and will have some first dates to announce in the coming days. This way, we will hopefully be able to appear in some places/countries we didn’t visit before as part of the reunion or actually ever before.
“Thanks again for all your support and stay tuned for more news soon.”
MORGOTH released its first-ever live album and DVD, “Cursed To Live”, on June 25, 2012 via Century Media Records. The audio tracks were mixed at Unisound Studio in Sweden with Dan Swanö (OPETH, KATATONIA, DISSECTION).
“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 was 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”. The cover artwork — with an intentional nod to the original “Cursed” art — was designed by the renowned artist Dirk Rudolph (RAMMSTEIN, IN EXTREMO, APOCALYPTICA), who had also created the original artwork for “Cursed” 21 years ago.
MORGOTH 2013 is:
