The metal band MorphiuM was formed in 2005, their music style is difficult to catalogue since it is inspired by a wide variety of musical influences which go from the most extreme metal to the more melodious and melancholic metal.
They record their first album "La Era de la Decadencia" in 2008 .
In 2011 MorphiuM signed with Roadrunner Records' affiliate in Spain, Kaiowas Records. Global/Mass Records launched their debut album. The first LP was described by the media as one of the best albums of the year receiving a valuation of 9.5 out of 10.
That same year MorphiuM initiate their European and American tour. This enabled them to share the stage with bands like Megadeth, Fear Factory, Overkill, Moonspell, Kataklysm, Destruction, Brujeria, All Shall Perish, Tristania, Dark Funeral... in well known festivals like Hell & Heaven Metal Fest in Mexico.
In 2012 they continue to tour around Spain to later in the year start the composition phase of their second album.
In 2013, with the release of "Crónicas de una muerte anunciada" they return to the amercian continent to share stage with Anthrax, Motórhead, Suicidal tendencies, In Flames, Six Feet Under, Exodus, Testament, III Niño, Suffocation... A tour that follows up until June.
Back in Europe they continue to tour in venues and festivals like Ripollet Rock Festival.
"The Blackout" is released at the beginning of 2016, this is their third and latest album, an LP which contains 12 tracks produced in Italy by Eugenio Fresco, mixed by Marco Barusso and mastered by Marco Dagostino.
The launch of the LP is accompanied by a new music video of the single "What lies behind words" that quickly surpasses 40.000 views during the first few days and other thousands of reproductions in streaming from digital platforms.
The presentation of the new material and the promotional acts takes them to tour through China in June and book dates for Spain, some still to be published, which will be followed by international tours which are being announced these days in their up to date social sites.
After being praised by specialized media with all their prior work, this album sung in english is a big step towards MorphiuM's career. The Blackout is giving a lot to talk about, some of the specialised media have already named it one of the best releases of 2016.
¨A 10 out of 10 album, I can't find words to deny this. A masterpiece"
