Legendary Florida death metallers MORBID ANGEL have been confirmed for the Gods of Metal festival, set to take place June 27-29, 2008 in Bologna, Italy. The festival billing is now shaping up as follows:

IRON MAIDEN (headliner June 27)
JUDAS PRIEST (headliner June 29)
CARCASS
YNGWIE MALMSTEEN
MORBID ANGEL
AT THE GATES
MESHUGGAH
ENSLAVED

More bands will be announced soon.

MORBID ANGEL is currently in the studio working on material for its first studio album since 2003's "Heretic". The upcoming CD will mark the group's first release to feature frontman David Vincent since 1995's "Domination".

MORBID ANGEL is presently unsigned, having parted ways with Earache Records following "Heretic"'s release.

Although MORBID ANGEL's upcoming album does not currently have a name, its title will likely begin with the letter "I", in keeping with the band's tradition of titling their albums in alphabetical order beginning with 1989's "Altars of Madness", and continuing through "Heretic".

MORBID ANGEL's current lineup includes Vincent, guitarist Trey Azagthoth and drummer Pete Sandoval.

I hear ya fear. We need more festivals, we should get the scientists working on that right away. Until then all we have to look forward to are smaller tours and the New England Metal Fest

The New England Metal and Hardcore Fest doesn't get nearly the amount of amazing bands that these European fests do. All we end up getting is some good metal bands, and a sh**load of crappy scene bands.

It kinda makes me want to start a decent U.S fest. The only thing needed would be money and convinceing the bands to play. If I ever win the lottery thats what I would do with the money.
