David Vincent formed I Am Morbid one year after concluding his second stint as vocalist/bassist in legendary extreme metal band Morbid Angel. Assembling a line-up consisting of drummer Tim Yeung (ex-Morbid Angel) and guitarists Bill Hudson (U.D.O., Doro) & Kelly McLauchlin (meanwhile replaced with Richie Brown (Exmortus, Trivium), the new outfit focused on classics from the first four Morbid Angel slabs: ‘Altars of Madness’, ‘Blessed Are the Sick’, ‘Covenant’ and ‘Domination’. Calling them a cover band would be wildly disrespectful as I Am Morbid only plays tracks originally written by David Vincent. In 2023 David Vincent & co celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of Morbid Angel’s landmark ‘Covenant’ album with a special set. Both lyrically and musically ‘Covenant’ is Morbid Angel at their blistering best. Originally released in 1993, it was their third, breakthrough outing thanks to a new record deal in the US and the rise of MTV, who gave the album generous exposure. (#GMM24)
