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...

"Who better to lead them on their journey to the undead than the mighty Holy Moses celebrating their 30th anniversary? Not once, because as you know, they do everything twice. You heard right, twice! Here is how it goes: On December 3rd, 40 of the most extreme Metal Bands and 2,000 headbangers from around the world will go to the Caribbean to take over a luxury cruise ship for a 5 day and 4 night trip to the undead!

"The cozy 'Spectrum' that gives you the real club feeling.

"And their jewel: The open air stage on the pool deck. The biggest festival stage to sail the Oceans.

"You can also get all your memorabilia signed at the Meet & Greet sessions. Be part of their infamous Metal Karaoke and many other special activities with the Artists. And last, but not least: Don't forget that they have bars on board that never close! What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done."
