Reactivated German death metallers MORGOTH are in the studio working on material for a new studio album. In addition, the band has been confirmed as main support for the upcoming European tour of death metal masters BOLT THROWER in September / October.
Comments MORGOTH: "We are happy to announce that we will be touring Europe with the mighty BOLT THROWER in September / October. This marks the first proper tour for MORGOTH since 1997 and will be a killer package for all of you death metal maniacs!
"And yes, the rumors are true… MORGOTH are currently in the studio working on new material. We decided to team up with Jörn Michutta at Sound Division Tonstudio in Sundern, Germany for these sessions and the results are sounding seriously heavy.
"The atmosphere and the creativity within the band have been inspiringly good in these past reunion years since 2011, so naturally, new ideas started to come up. As consequence, we decided to take some months off from playing shows and properly focus on songwriting.
"We expect to already have a brand-new single out before the tour, so stay tuned for more news and details soon…and see you on tour!!!”
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 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".
