German death metal band Morgoth will be making their first U.S. appearance in almost 20 years at Maryland Deathfest on this Saturday, May 27th.
In regards to their upcoming performance, the band comments:
“We are very much looking forward to our show at MDF. It has been way too many years since we have last played on North American soil. As we have so many good memories on our previous touring through the US, the time to return is really over-due. Our loyal fan base has kept the name of MORGOTH alive throughout all these years, so our return is also meant as a big THANK YOU to all our supporters who have never forgotten us. Be sure to get the full Teutonic death metal treatment when we enter the stage and prepare to get cursed!”
The band will soon release their first ever live CD/DVD set Cursed To Live which celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary of their all-time classic album Cursed. The cover artwork for the upcoming release was designed by renowned artist Dirk Rudolph (Rammstein, In Extremo, Apocalyptica) who also created the cover for Cursed 21 years ago. The new cover artwork was designed to intentionally allude to the original Cursed album cover. Cursed To Live will be released via Century Media Records.
To celebrate the upcoming release, the band has announced live shows all over the globe. Click here to check out a complete list of live show dates, cities and venues as well as a bigger picture of the album’s cover artwork.
