Morgoth Recording New Album

Morgoth has checked in with the following announcement about recording a new album and gearing up for tour dates:

"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 rumours are true….Morgoth is 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!" More...

Cripple Bastards To Play Obscene Extreme Fest

Italy's Cripple Bastards has been confirmed for the upcoming Obscene Extreme Festival. The following press release was also issued about the appearance:

"You could say this is a 'grindcore hat-trick' as it is the third OEF appearance in 2014 for Italian hate mob Cripple Bastards after headlining the insane Obscene Extreme Asia in Tokyo and Obscene Extreme Australia in Melbourne earlier this year. But if you really want to see the Bastards play at home, then Obscene Extreme Trutnov is the grounds for the final massacre. They have been blasting the shit on stage since the festival's birth back in 1999 and raised the most infernal stage diving pits for countless times through the years that followed.

"26 years after their conception Cripple Bastards still hold the banner high as Italy's most hostile and aggressive grind/hardcore unit around. With one foot firmly in the past and all the vicious savagery of manic fast 80's hardcore extremity, Cripple Bastards are also charging forwards. With bloodshot eyes and a rabid 'get out and bite them' attitude, this band are ready to introduce their brand new 2014 full length 'Nero In Metastasi' on Relapse Records and they will consolidate their ongoing mission of bringing nihilistic, fuck-you-all, grinding hatred to every corner of an underserving mankind. Cripple Bastards will also be introducing for the first time ever on Trutnov's Battlefield their 5 piece line-up with new axeman Wild Vitto on second guitar which will only enhance their wall of hate/grind fury!"

The Obscene Extreme Festival 2014 will take place from July 16th - 20th, 2014, with full details available right here. The confirmed lineup includes the following bands: More...

Brutal Truth To Play Obscene Extreme Fest

The Obscene Extreme festival will be taking place from July 16th - 20th, with ticket information available at this location. Now the festival has announced several new additions to the lineup, including Brutal Truth and Morgoth. The festival organizers comment:

"Few bands represent Obscene Extreme as fully as US grind legends Brutal Truth – they've weathered break-ups and line-up changes, but never once have they halted in their mission to keep pushing the bleeding edge of grindcore.

"Never complacent, each steamroller of Brutal Truth album has furthered their sound and moved the goalposts for the whole damn genre in the process. Now bassist, founding member and extreme metal champion Dan Lilker approaches his 50th birthday, he's stepping back from music and his baby - Brutal Truth - will be no more.

"When the band returned in 2006, it was Obscene Extreme the following year that welcomed them back as very personification of the festival. Now, seven years later we'll bid them farewell with one final performance. Obscene Extreme 2014 – this promises to be unforgettable!!!

"Another band that will be stepping out onto the Obscene Extreme stage this year will be fathers of the German death metal scene, the mighty Morgoth. Originally split in 1998 after only three albums - the coffin-lid hammering of 1991's ‘Cursed,’ 1993's forward-thinking ‘Odium’ and their most divisive albums ever, 1995's post-punk ‘Feel Sorry For The Fanatic.’ More...

Morgoth Going On Hiatus

In regards to the recent reunion and future of the band, German death metallers Morgoth have issued the following announcement:

"After all the great experiences we made on the 'Cursed Reunion' so far, the time is now come to have a closer look at the past 18 months of Morgoth's comeback, which has successfully re-connected us with many old friends as well as also a lot of new fans...

"Summer Breeze and Brutal Assault marked the last two festival appearances which we had scheduled as part of this long journey through time. This reunion has been an amazing run, truly full of awesome experiences which we will cherish for a very long time. Our songs are about 20 years old by now and even though we had been absent from stages for about 13 of those years, we nevertheless managed to once again set free the raw energy of our classic death metal style in a powerful way.

"Our initial concept was to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the 'Cursed' album's release for only one summer season. This now ended up being almost 2 eventful years, if you consider that the reunion's preparation already started around November 2010. During this return, we thankfully also managed to visit several countries where we originally had never managed to play. We are happy and proud for this awesome opportunity!

"After all this recent action, we have now decided to take things slower again to be able to review the reunion on a more personal level and then to be able to gain some distance from things before deciding upon our next steps with the band.

"By playing two final club-shows in Berlin and Essen in early November, we intend to finish off the 'Cursed Reunion' cycle with a personal vibe and a more intimate atmosphere. We are sure it will be a hot and loud farewell, so we are really looking forward to your participation! We are hearing that the pre-sales for these gigs are moving forwards quite quickly, so better hurry up and order your tickets! More...
