Philadelphia’s Morgul Blade writes traditional heavy metal with a nod to second wave Scandinavian black metal, combined with the lore of the great J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, and other subjects including history and folklore. The 4-piece outfit explores the darker, more sinister side of heavy metal with harsh vocals interspersed with heroic clear ones. Telling tales of magick and might, forlorn battlefields, heroic deeds, and beings of unlimited power, the band released their hotly anticipated debut full length; Fell Sorcery Abounds” (No Remorse Records) in 2022. Morgul Blade hopes to transcend the subgenres of metal and create music that builds worlds and takes you away from crushing modernity.
The members of The Out-Sect all met while living in a Philadelphia junkyard. On weekends, they would gather to drink beers inside a broken down 1982 GMC Caballero with a copy of Back From The Grave stuck in the car;s cassette player. Instantly being drawn to the trashy sounds of those pimple-faced mid-60s punks, they figured they could write a song half as good as any of them. And that’s just what they did! Using instruments they, quite literally, found in the trash, the band has managed to write a handful of deranged “songs” that will leave you asking yourself “What is that smell?” and “Dear god, can they just stop playing!?”
