In the past, Ragnarokkr has brought luminaries from across the metal world to Chicago to play for all true metal warriors, including Virgin Steel, Helstar, Cage, the reunion of metal legends Brocas Helm and, for the very first time in the U.S., Wizard out of Germany and Voltax out of Mexico. 2013 promises to the best year yet...by far."

Relapse Records is pleased to announce the vinyl reissue of Morbid Saint’s criminally underrated debut album "Spectrum of Death." Relapse commented:
"Originally released in 1988, this death/thrash cult classic, produced by Eric Greif, was light years ahead of its peers, leaving posers crushed in a heap of destruction! The long out-of-print album has been repressed in celebration of the band’s reunion performance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest X.
"Spectrum of Death will see a June 19th re-release with pre-orders and an officially licensed exclusive shirt available now at this location. A full list of upcoming Morbid Saint reunion shows is available below."

The Day Everything Became Nothing was forced to cancel their appearance at Maryland Deathfest X, as one of the members has a commitment that he can't get out of around that time. The band tried but was unable to find a fill in for the upcoming U.S. shows.

After a painfully long hiatus, thrash band Morbid Saint will be playing its first live show in almost two decades on December 10th, 2011 in the band's home town of Sheboygan, WI.
“It currently is the purest form of Morbid Saint in all its brutality,” says founding member and current guitar player for Morbid Saint Jay Visser about the show in Sheboygan. “We will be playing mostly all of Spectrum of Death, songs off Destruction System, and new Morbid Saint Songs at the December 10th show in Sheboygan.” The show will be held at the SpeakEasy Bar and is part of a tribute to the late great Dimebag Darrel.
Although a full-length tour is not planned at this time, Morbid Saint will be playing shows in the United States in 2012 and is working on re-releasing the 1989 album “Spectrum of Death” with new songs added. You can see Morbid Saint live at the SpeakEasy bar in Sheboygan, WI on December 10th, 2011. For more information about the band visit the Morbid Saint Facebook profile here.
