Hailing from New Jersey, Mörder is a blackened death metal band that, according to their bio (and me), “will pierce the skin, rattle the bones, and captivate the inner workings of the mind.” Mörder was founded in 2009 by vocalist/lead guitarist “Dreadful Gooz,” who then assembled the rest of the band over the next few years. The band has been gigging around the New York City Tri-state area since their inception and recently caught the attention of Randall Amplifiers, who they’re now endorsed by.
Next up on the band’s agenda is opening for legendary crossover band D.R.I. at Webster Hall on Pi Day — March 14 for our nerdically challenged friends — at Webster Hall in NYC. Contact the band on Facebook for discounted tickets!

One afternoon, alone and bored in my mom’s living room in East Harlem, I decided to go to MetalTravelGuide.com. MTG never led me astray, and it had given me a lot of fun suggestions for when I traveled abroad, so why wouldn’t it show me all the best metal places NYC had to offer? Continue reading
