Morbikon (Municipal Waste, Etc.) To Play First Live Shows This Month


Morbikon, the black metal duo featuring guitarist/bassist Phil “Landphil” Hall (Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, etc.), drummer Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Discordance Axis) and vocalist Matthias “Vieth” Lillmåns (Finntroll, etc.), have announced their debut live shows.

Lillmåns will be unable to perform with the band for those shows, so a revamped live lineup will be fleshing out the performances. Hall l aid that out as follows:

Morbikon was started as a passion project between myself and my writing partner Quotidius in 2020 to express our love of early ‘90s black metal while simultaneously blowing off some steam trapped in a quarantine. Getting Dave Witte involved pushed the music to a new level, then an awesome opportunity came to work with the outstanding vocalist Mathias Lillmåns from the Finnish band Finntroll.

We completed the album Ov Mournful Twilight in the middle of the pandemic not considering any live show prospects. Now, three years after the inception of the band, we finally have the opportunity to play the music live.

Unfortunately, the logistics of bringing Mathias Lillmåns all the way from Finland has proved to be infeasible. Stepping into the role of vocalist will be original lyricist Quotidius.

We are also welcoming guitarists Toby Swope (Psychosomatic) and Adam Guilliams (Cannabis Corpse). Drums will be handled by Dave Witte. We are looking forward to playing live and bringing these awesome tunes to everyone soon!”
