Ever since Century Media Records re-released the 1991 MORGOTH album "Cursed" in 2006 as well as a "Best Of" compilation-release one year earlier, there have been constant rumours circulating about an actual comeback of MORGOTH. These rumours as well as several offers from festival promoters have finally challenged the band to actively celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original release of the "Cursed" album by playing some selected festival shows in 2011. The setlist will consequently mainly consist of songs from the "Cursed" album as well as some cuts from the classic 1989 / 1990 EPs "Resurrection Absurd" and "The Eternal Fall". The band’s line-up for these special shows is almost confirmed by now as well and will consist of Marc Grewe (vocals), Harry Busse (guitar), Sebastian Swart (guitar), Thilo Mellies (bass) as well as a great drummer, soon to be announced. Vocalist Marc Grewe comments as follows: "Throughout the next months we will make sure to prepare a great show for us all to celebrate together in 2011. We seriously look forward to seeing old friends, peers and faithful supporters of the band again as well as playing to new audiences during the upcoming string of festival shows." The first confirmed date for MORGOTH in 2011 can now also be revealed: the band will appear on a headlining slot at the 5th edition of the Death Feast Open Air 2011. Death Feast takes places June 23 – 25, 2011 in Hünxe / Germany and other heavy-weight Death Metal acts to appear will be Grave, Vader, Pestilence, Krisiun, Misery Index and Gorguts, to mention but a few.
