MORBID ANGEL To Begin Work On New Music

MORBID ANGEL frontman Steve Tucker says that the band is preparing to begin the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2017's "Kingdoms Disdained" album.

"I'm gonna actually start writing some new music, and I think Trey [Azagthoth, guitar] will probably start writing some new music," Steve told Metal Wani in a new interview (hear audio below). "We'll probably do a couple of more tours throughout the year. We have some stuff that's being talked about now, but nothing concrete. It's that time. It's been a little bit over a year since the last album came out. I've kind of got the urge and desire myself to write some more music. So we'll start getting into that and continue doing shows."

Later this month, MORBID ANGEL and CANNIBAL CORPSE will join forces for the first time ever in America to co-headline the 2019 Decibel Magazine Tour. Rising Bay Area brutalizers NECROT and space-obsessed Denver death dealers BLOOD INCANTATION round out the bill. New York death metal icons IMMOLATION will join the final week of the tour as main support to MORBID ANGEL, as CANNIBAL CORPSE exits the tour after the New York City date.

Last April, Silver Lining Music released a special two-disc digipack edition of "Kingdoms Disdained", featuring seven instrumental demo tracks previously only available as part of the deluxe box set.

"Kingdoms Disdained" was released in December 2017 via Silver Lining Music in the U.S. and JVC in Japan. The disc, which reunites founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth with bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker, was recorded at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and produced by MORBID ANGEL with Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL, SIX FEET UNDER, BELPHEGOR).

Joining Azagthoth and Tucker during the recording sessions for "Kingdoms Disdained" was drummer Scotty Fuller (ANNIHILATED; formerly of ABYSMAL DAWN)

MORBID ANGEL in January 2017 announced the addition of Dan Vadim Von (guitarist/frontman of the American death metal band VADIMVON) to the band's lineup on second guitar. He joined the group as the replacement for Norwegian guitarist Destructhor (a.k.a. Thor Anders Myhren), who left the band four years ago.
