Drum-cam footage of MORBID ANGEL's Tim Yeung performing the song "Curse The Flesh" with his bandmates at the August 6 "Summer Slaughter" tour stop in Pontiac, Michigan can be seen below.
In an August 8 interview with SkullsNBones.com, Yeung was asked when fans can expect to see a follow-up to MORBID ANGEL's 2011 album "Illud Divinum Insanus". He replied: "I don't know. I don't have that answer. I would love to do [a new album] — I'm ready right now — but it's really up to other people to start getting some stuff together. I think there are some songs that are kind of in the works right now. I know there's riffs and stuff like that — I hear stuff here and there — but we aren't actually working on anything yet. But we are working on getting… We're talking about doing maybe an EP, something of that nature. I think that could be a possibility. [We'll] try to shoot for next year. Or 2016, I don't know… Hopefully it's soon. Hopefully next year. So there is talks of it. But nothing confirmed."
"Illud Divinum Insanus" sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 141. The effort marked MORBID ANGEL's first CD to feature bassist/vocalist David Vincent since 1995's "Domination".
Asked how it's been playing with MORBID ANGEL four years after he replaced the band's longtime drummer, Pedro "Pete" Sandoval, so that Pete could recover from surgery for a disc prolapse, Yeung told Monster: "It's been great. MORBID ANGEL has been awesome as far as we work great together. I fit really good with those guys. We're all a little crazy, so I fit in perfectly with that. It's great. It's awesome. It's an honor to work with them. It's fantastic. The fans are really starting to come through also. It was a little hard at first, because Pete's such a great player; he's really irreplaceable. So I really just kind of filled that slot. I didn't really replace him — I just added my own… They just added me to the element there, what was there. So it's been awesome; really great."
With the inspiration of a songwriting mother and artistic father, Tim began playing drums in 1990 at the age of eleven. Within a few short years he was recording demos and playing live shows within the local muisc scene in upstate New York. He attended Hochstein School Of Music in Rochester and got his first big break in 1997 when he joined the death metal band HATE ETERNAL.
Now based in Los Angeles, Yeung has performed and worked with such national acts as ALL THAT REMAINS, HANK WILLIAMS III, NILE, VITAL REMAINS and DECREPIT BIRTH. His straddling of the extreme and mainstream is perhaps best reflected in his work with his band DIVINE HERESY, whose music features elements of extreme death metal as well as more mainstream genres.
