ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Morphine Angel are most often labeled a goth band, and have often been compared to acts as diverse as Godflesh, Killing Joke, David Bowie, Ministry, and the Sisters of Mercy. However, the “goth tag” is one that sits uncomfortably with Morphine Angel, because their music isn’t really like anything else that has emerged before, Morphine Angel is breaking new ground, creating a space for themselves somewhere between classic gothic and modern industrial rock, with just a little theater thrown in for good measure. The song structures are obsessive, dark, and aggressive -a sound that reflects the intensity of Morphine Angel.

Paul Fredrick was the bassist in the notorious Lincoln NE punk bands Red Max and One Dark Rabbit. Meanwhile, Lead vocalist Johnny Lee, was making noises in his own local music scene as the “Goth Bad Boy.” During his earlier days in a band called Fishbox, Johnny Lee and Paul Fredrick met and began working together in early ’92. After only a few months of development, Morphine Angel became a regular in Lincoln clubs like Knickerbockers and Duffy’s.

It wasn’t uncommon for them to pack a house with only a few days notice. Their first full length CD, Project Isa was produced by the notorious W.H. Tong. Thanks to the power of the songs, and the relentless touring that the band did to support this CD, Project Isa reached instant critical acclaim in goth circles and sold over 2500 copies in the first year, without any help from main stream distribution networks. The band was reviewed and praised as being the new Bauhaus in most national gothic magazines including Alternative Press, Flipside, and Industrial Nation.

Just prior to leaving for an Australian tour, Isa guitarist Wolfe departed from the band to pursue his own side project with his wife. In a bind for a guitarist on the eve ofthe Australian tour, W.H. Tong graciously stepped in to fill the position. On returning from overseas, the band began recording tracks for what was to become their next album, Lovenest + Murderfest (Delinquent Records)
