I AM MORBID, which plays material from MORBID ANGEL‘s “Altars Of Madness” (1989), “Blessed Are The Sick” (1991), “Covenant” (1993) and “Domination” (1995) albums, is performing five shows in Russia in late May, followed by fourteen dates in the rest of Europe. The tour, which is presented by The Flaming Arts Agency, features NECROPHAGIA as direct support.
Vincent recently told Ghost Cult about I AM MORBID: “It’s been discussed off and on for a few years now, but, as they say, actions speak louder than words. While it was exciting to discuss, it was held off for a few years until I decided to go through some personal changes in my life, and really absorb the possibility of it happening. I went ahead and focused on my roots music, but this kept lingering, and now it’s time for I AM MORBID to finally happen.”
Regarding the I AM MORBID setlist, Vincent said: “Like everything I do, I want to make this special. This is very different from MORBID ANGEL. If you want to see a MORBID ANGEL show, you know where to go, but this isn’t it. I’m only going to be performing songs that I wrote on this tour. If I didn’t write it, we aren’t playing it. We are going to throw in things, here or there, to make things more unique, but it’s going to be one brutal show. I can promise you that.”
MORBID ANGEL‘s controversial 2011 album, “Illud Divinum Insanus”, marked the group’s first CD to feature Vincent since “Domination”.
The band recently recorded a new studio album with a lineup that includes Steve Tucker on bass/vocals, Scott Fuller (ANNIHILATED, ERRORGEIST) on drums, and Dan Vadim Von (guitarist/frontman of the American death metal group VADIMVON) on second guitar.
