BiographyDiscographyGallery
Swedish cult act MORBID have teamed up with Century Media Records to release “Year Of The Goat”, a 100% official vinyl and CD offering covering the seminal band’s first demo “December Moon”, live and rehearsal recordings on April 4th, 2011 in Europe.

“Year Of The Goat” will be available as ultra deluxe triple-gatefold LP with three 180g vinyls, printed inner sleeves and slipcase as well as deluxe kingsize 2CD mediabook in a slipcase packaging. All material has been collected and compiled by Dr. Schitz in cooperation with Napoleon Pukes, Drutten, Klacke, and TG and also features liner notes by Daniel Ekeroth (author of “Swedish Death Metal”) along with an in-depth interview by Metalion (taken from the final issue of Slayer Magazine). Rounded off with cover artwork and entire layout being done by Erik Danielsson (Watain), “Year Of The Goat” is the first comprehensive MORBID release that truly honors the band’s musical legacy and memory of legendary vocalist Dead – also renowned for his time in Norwegian black metal act MAYHEM – who committed suicide on April 8, 1991.

Dr Schitz states in his interview with Metalion (Slayer Mag):

“I would have been quite content if MORBID would have remained in utter obscurity, but the Norns wanted otherwise and who am I to argue with them? Seeing all the bootlegs (over 35 last time I counted, and they keep coming) and interest in MORBID we decided that it would be proper to bring some closure to it all by doing a final, ultimate release. Not to cash in; on the contrary as we have decided to not make any profit but rather donate the proceeds to worthy causes. Of course, also to pay respect to our fans, to the memory of Dead, and to whatever we shared back then. I am very pleased and proud that just about all the old members have actively been involved in the production, without a trace of ego-bullshit. We have spared no efforts in making the very best we could. It should prove to be utterly essential to any fan of MORBID (and Dead)!”
