The founder and guitarist and the mastermind of Morbid Angel, Trey Azagthoth, recruited the former singer Steve Tucker back to the fold of the outfit along with new second guitarist Dan Vadim Von and the new drummer Scott Fuller. The long waited ninth Morbid Angel album entitled KINGDOMS DISDAINED has eleven songsand shall most certainly crush. Metal-Rules.Com had the pleasure to talk with Steve Tucker about the state of the world as seen from his, and Morbid Angel’s,  perspective.

MORBID ANGEL To Release New Album Kingdoms Disdained This December Via Silver Lining Music; New Track Playing + Preorders Available

October 14th, 2017
Morbid Angel - Kingdoms Disdained

Morbid Angel – Kingdoms Disdained

Legendary death metal unit MORBID ANGEL will unleash their ninth studio album on December 1st via Silver Lining Music and JVC in Japan. Titled Kingdoms Disdained, the record reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker.

Just one play of MORBID ANGEL’s searing Kingdoms Disdained, and you’ll realize that this is the only true current aural document of a world sinking into uncharted despair. “The album title says it all,” says Tucker, “everybody’s fed up and nobody can figure out how to fix it. We’ve got all these miniature wars in neighborhoods, cities, countries, and we’ve got people with varying opinions causing chaos, yet everyone is doing what they feel is right. Which all makes it feel like the world has reached a point of utter madness and confusion.”

As if fate constructed the moment, these forefathers of death metal found themselves witnessing the storm’s eye as they prepared to create Kingdoms Disdained, deciphering it with their ferocious music via long-held Sumerian-based beliefs. “It’s been written but nobody pays attention, because we erase our history,” furthers Tucker. “We don’t understand much about the Sumerian texts because things got erased, buried, and broken up. And for years, Trey and I talked a lot about the idea of those Gods waking up and coming back to show us that they’re angry.”

Recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan (MORBID ANGEL, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, Six Feet Under, Belphegor), Azagthoth, Tucker and drummer Scotty Fuller (Annihilated; former Abysmal Dawn) created eleven pieces of devastatingly dynamic death metal. Compositions such as “Garden Of Disdain,” “Architect And Iconoclast,” and “The Pillars Crumbling” supremely illustrate Azagthoth’s incredible creative alchemy with Tucker as well as his own incomparable guitar work.

“We’re always trying to paint pictures; to create images,” notes Tucker, “and I think this album is a fair image of the world today, but taken from a different perspective; the perspective of those Gods who built this, who may be resting now but are starting to wake up.”

Kingdoms Disdained also features artwork courtesy of Irish mixed-media artist Ken Coleman, who created a series of pieces that further augment the stories being told. Don’t walk meekly around the edge of Kingdoms Disdained, go all-in on the journey and MORBID ANGEL’s intense importance to these times will be crystal clear.

MORBID ANGEL’s Kingdoms Disdained will be available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. Preorders are currently available. A special-edition boxset will be available to order shortly.

Kingdoms Disdained Track Listing:
1. Piles Of Little Arms
2. D.E.A.D.
3. Garden of Disdain
4. The Righteous Voice
5. Architect And Iconoclast
6. Paradigms Warped
7. The Pillars Crumbling
8. For No Master
9. Declaring New Law (Secret Hell)*
10. From The Hand Of Kings
11. The Fall Of Idols
*(Not available on the vinyl format.)

Morbid Angel cancels all the summer festival dates

July 18th, 2017

World Management and Morbid Angel would like to announce that due to unfortunate and last minute, unforeseen problems with a passport for one of the members of the band, as a result the Summer Festival dates slated for late July and August will have to be cancelled. In well over 30 years we have never had an incident like this, nor have we ever cancelled shows in our past. We have been advised by The US State Department / Passport Agency that a new passport will not be forthcoming in time for any of the upcoming festivals. Morbid Angel are extremely unhappy about this loss of shows and want to apologize to all the Fans, Promoters, and Vendors in Europe! We are working to have this issue remedied for the future and are looking forward to coming back to Europe and playing for all of our fans in November!!!

Destructhor leaves Morbid Angel (as well)

June 18th, 2015

MorbidAngel2.jpgAccording to the official facebook of Thor Anders Myhren aka Destructhor has left Morbid Angel as well. Here is the full statement :

“I would like to announce that I, Destructhor, as well am out of Morbid Angel. Due to issues of them wanting to work with someone more local. Actually pretty good news to me since I personally decided to leave Morbid Angel after the last tour we did in Europe nov/dec 2014. It is definitely time for me to move on with the Norwegian extreme act MYRKSKOG. This is where I truly belong and exciting things are happening! A new record is being released next year with coming tours, festivals and so on. So it’s time to step it up and prepare for war with my Norwegian/Swedish brothers in MYRKSKOG.

As for Morbid Angel I wish them all the best with everything! It’s been a lot of great experiences! No hard feelings at all and may the future bring us all to another dimension!

Review by Michael de los Muertos
Pictures and Commentary by Ice Maiden

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with arena shows. While I’ve seen some excellent concerts in large venues, like most metalheads the intimate feeling of a small club is vastly preferable in many ways. Unfortunately when your town is suffering a drought of metal club shows as Portland has been for the last several months, you tend to look upon arena shows as the last bastion of the scene. Local clubs and promoters may not have the balls to put money on the line to bring an underground metal band to town, but the big concert promoters still smell a buck or two on the wind with the big-name acts like Pantera…right?

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st– 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.
