On June 25th 2012 the curse shall be fulfilled. The release of MORGOTH‘S first-ever live release „Cursed To Live„, the band’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of their all-time classic album „Cursed”, has been just recently announced. In order to give all you worshippers and dedicated followers of death metal a first glimpse into what’s to come, the band has just launched a video clip of the track „Isolated” (Live at Way Of Darkness festival 2011) on Century Media’s Youtube channel.

The cover artwork was designed by the renowned artist Dirk Rudolph (Rammstein, In Extremo, Apocalyptica), who had also created the original artwork for „Cursed”, 21 (!) years ago.
