Morgue Orgy: Debut Lp For Free!

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse… Then suddenly a cry, a malevolent yell: “You slags will die, you’ll burn in hell!”

TheLastManOnEarthCover323e1dWatch out, for Christmas 2013 maggot-hoarders and death metal mavericks MORGUE ORGY set to release their debut LP as a free gift on December 25 of this year, before officially retailing on January 13, 2014. When an album opens with a song commemorating interspecies breeding between man and alien, you know you’re in for a ride. Such is the case with Morgue Orgy’s first full-length release, ‘The Last Man on Earth’. Spat out of the deepest darkest depths of metal’s spiritual home, ‘The Last Man on Earth’ is an album set to take the Birmingham-based band into spaces more rotten, extreme, and experimental than ever before. Sweating and forging away at the album since their last release in 2010, ‘The Last Man on Earth’ is no mere random collection of songs. As keyboard player Paul Carter comments: ‘We want the listener to have an experience when listening to the full album, to feel the highs and lows, the intensity and the dynamics. We don’t want people to pull 2 songs off the album onto their playlist, we want people to listen to the whole album from start-to-finish.’

Despite this dedicated labour of love, Morgue Orgy are at heart a band set on fun, a mindset which leads to songs about zombie hordes, scarecrow serial killers, and nightmarish circus troupes, as well as live shows alongside Anaal Nathrakh, Evile and The Rotted. Keep those ears out too for track seven (‘Castle Freak’), with lyrics co-written by Drunk of Fukpig. Compared to the rest of the album it’s fairly light-hearted stuff, merely imprisonment, arson, and matricide. In a truly festive spirit, Morgue Orgy are giving the album away for free ahead of its official retail date of January 13 next year.
