Happy New Year everyone. To celebrate the new year, we've released some photos taken by NUZRUB at the December 15th show in Philadelphia, PA. The majority of the new pictures are located off the Miscellaneous page of the Photo Archive but can be found throughout the entire archive. Unfortunately, most of the shots that were taken that night were unusable due to use of an unprofessional camera, but oh well. Included in this batch of pictures are the festive Morbid Xmas stockings hung by the drum kit with care. See if you can find them!

Morbid Angel Featured On Dutch Radio This Weekend

Thanx to Harry Maat for notifying us of a radio event going on this Saturday, August 22nd, from 23.00 - 24.00 hours on Radio 3 FM in Holland. The show is called 'Bad Grrl', and the feature is titled 'Guitar Player or Guru? A documentary about one of the founders of death metal, Morbid Angel guitarist Trey Azagthoth'. Here is a translation of the press release for the event that was sent along:

"Dangerous, evil, and aggressive. That's how the average parent describes the Death Metal music their kids are listening to. But what happens when you look beyond the first looks and impressions? What are the consequences when you throw all "your rules" overboard and, without prejudice, take a spiritual trip with one of the founders of death metal: Morbid Angel's guitar player, Trey Azagthoth?

A hot bus, a not-too-fresh toilet, about 10 sweaty men, no showers and hardly any sleep. Why on earth would you spend 3 nights and 4 days travelling through California, U.S.A. in the company of a band called Morbid Angel?

The answer from "Bad Grrl" Mirella Simoncini is undeniable: "Fascination and a big middle-finger that I raise towards society with it's intolerant attitude towards the unknown!"

Trey Azagthoth is not the chaotic death metal guitar player that most people think he is. Through his "mad" geniality, he developed his own religion. "One man's chaos is another man's genius" according to Azagthoth in one of his last interviews before Simoncini decided to hook up with the band in the U.S.A.

With the unfortunate end of her radio show in sight, Simoncini throws all thinkable rules overboard and documents her search between good and evil for the last time as THE Bad Grrl from Radio 3."

If you live in Holland or are in the broadcasting area of Radio 3 FM, be sure to check that out!
