Morgoth - Reunite, Announce "Cursed" Anniversary Shows


German classic death metal act Morgoth has announced its reunion after being on hold for the past 14 years to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut album "Cursed." The first announced anniversary show will be at Death Feast Open Air, taking place from June 23rd-25th, 2011 in Hünxe, situated in Germany's Ruhr district. The official statement reads as follows:


Ever since Century Media Records re-released the 1991 Morgoth album Cursed in 2006 as well as a Best Of compilation one year earlier, there have been constant rumours circulating about an actual comeback of Morgoth. These rumours as well as several offers from festival promoters have finally challenged the band to actively celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original release of the Cursed album by playing some selected festival shows in 2011. The setlist will consequently mainly consist of songs from the Cursed album as well as some cuts from the classic 1989/1990 EPs Resurrection Absurd and The Eternal Fall. The band's line-up for these special shows is almost confirmed by now as well and will consist of [original members] Marc Grewe (vocals), Harry Busse (guitar), Sebastian Swart (guitar), [session member] Thilo Mellies (band) as well as a great drummer, soon to be announced.

Vocalist Marc Grewe comments as follows: "Throughout the next months we will make sure to prepare a great show for us all to celebrate together in 2011. We seriously look forward to seeing old friends, peers and faithful supporters of the band again as well as playing to new audiences during the upcoming string of festival shows."

The first confirmed date for Morgoth in 2011 can now also be revealed: The band will appear on a headlining slot at the 5th edition of the Death Feast Open Air 2011. Death Feast takes place June 23rd-25th, 2011 in Hünxe/Germany and other heavy-weight death metal acts to appear will be Grave, Vader, Pestilence, Krisiun, Misery Index and Gorguts, to mention but a few.

Good news indeed. "Odium" was a pretty good album, not a very big fan of "Cursed", sounds too much like Death, but it's solid.

Let's just hope that they won't make another Feel Sorry For The Fanatic. I'm not saying that its a bad album on it's own, but as a Morgoth album it is terrible!

Actually the Swedish one has already been done a few years ago.
