Morgoth To Release Live CD/DVD Set "Cursed To Live"

German death metal act Morgoth will release the band's first ever live album and DVD, "Cursed To Live," this coming, June 2012. "Cursed To Live" marks the band's live documentation of the currently ongoing 20th anniversary celebration of the "Cursed" album (released via Century Media Records in 1991).

"Cursed To Live" will be released digitally in North America on June 26th, and the limited DVD+2CD will be available exclusively at CM Distro. The live show featured on the album was recorded at the band's triumphant show headlining the Way Of Darkness Festival 2011, where Morgoth performed an extensive set of 15 songs.

The cover artwork for "Cursed To Live" (which intentionally alludes to the original "Cursed" artwork) was designed by artist Dirk Rudolph, who also created the original artwork for "Cursed" 21 years ago. The audio of the live recordings was mixed by legendary death metal producer Dan Swanö.

In regards to this upcoming release, Morgoth comments: "By the end of June we will be finally releasing our career's first-ever official live DVD / live album 'Cursed to Live'. Get ready for the full power of Morgoth during the 2011/2012 'Cursed' reunion! The package's main show is a 70 min. live recording of the 'Way Of Darkness' festival show that we played on October 7th, 2011 in Lichtenfels, Germany. Next to this main feature, we also added plenty of extra bonus-material for the DVD format (like the early, original promo clips and more recent live footage) and its companion bonus disc (composed of live songs from Rock Hard Festival and Wacken Open Air, both in 2011)...Watch out!"
