On September 26, Jo Schüftan of Horns Up Rocks! conducted an interview with drummer Tim Yeung of Florida death metallers MORBID ANGEL at B.B. King Blues Club Grill in New York City. You can now watch the chat below.
As previously reported, MORBID ANGEL was denied entry to Canada over the weekend and was unable to play its two scheduled shows there on September 30 (Montreal) and October 1 (Toronto).
MORBID ANGEL has just kicked off a month-long North American tour with support from Sweden’s DARK FUNERAL and GRAVE. The headlining trek, the band’s first in six and half years, runs through October 21 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Said vocalist David Vincent about the group’s setlist: “We are playing many songs [on this tour] from ‘Altars Of Madness’ and ‘Covenant’. We have put together a setlist that highlights the diversity of the first four classic MORBID ANGEL albums in a way that celebrates the paradigm shifting creativity that has defined extreme music for decades.”
MORBID ANGEL recently announced that it will also play a set of “all-time classic songs” on its upcoming European tour with KREATOR, NILE and FUELED BY FIRE, which kicks off on November 1 in Antwerp, Belgium.
MORBID ANGEL‘s latest album, “Illud Divinum Insanus”, sold around 3,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 141. The effort marked MORBID ANGEL‘s first CD to feature bassist/vocalist David Vincent since 1995’s “Domination”.
