Album Notes
morgue city - To Love Is To Prey

This album was an unending battle to get finished. Some reasons were due to entire band line up changes and others were self imposed due to the availability of the technology and it's changes. Our first album was released in November of 2006. This was quite an ordeal to get this second album out.

The album as a whole delves into the aspect of relationships between oneself and others as well as with the tangible and intangible.
Be it belief, faith, companionship, locations and obsession.

as Ingmar Bergman's film "The Seventh Seal" so eloquently professed..."Love is the blackest of all plagues".
morgue city has declared..."To Love Is To Prey."

Morgue City is a band that has gone through many many changes in sound and personnel. Like any successful project in the entertainment world it must be made up of resilient and determined people. This is the case with Morgue City. The band that has a rock attack intensity as well as a more sinister edge as it delves into the darker realms of noiz and it’s concurrent drones. Some of the Morgue City sound is very pop rock oriented but there is always a deviant grind of sound laced in the song work. The band consists of two musicians with a very long history in the music business. Founder, SPIKE the Percussionist, is known from a long list of projects that include Astrogenic Hallucinauting, Childman, Doggebi, Delicate Terror and as the music director for the world renowned flesh suspension group Constructs of Ritual Evolution – CoRE. The lead guitar and vocals are handled by Raul who is a multi instrumentalist and has a long history of studio work and touring. Raul hails from such bands as M-87 and was the former bass player for Bozo Porno Circus. The result is a musical conglomeration both hauntingly familiar and refreshingly new as well as powerful and beautifully dark. Combine the likes of everything from classical to jazz and gloom to power noiz with catchy lyrics, sophisticated beats, and musically diverse melodies and the result is Morgue City.
