The band consists of Christiiaan Morris on guitar and vocals, Nick Cates (ex-3 Inches of Blood) on bass, and Burke Thomas (Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Vendetta Red) on drums. The band has been described by their record label as “an American Grand Magus“. 

Curse of the North


Curse of the North’s new album “Curse of the North: I” is a love letter to all that is great about classic heavy metal and rock. Fusing the modern sounds of heavy bands like High on Fire and Baroness with the classic takes on Black Sabbath and 70s Scorpions, Curse of the North forge the sound ahead with a focus on memorable songs and heavy riffs. Songs like “Sleep While You Can” and “Into The Trees” tear through all that is great about classic guitar riffs and soaring melodic vocals. Whereas songs like “Wheel of Swords” or “The Tower” show off the heavy intricate arrangements the band is more than capable of.
Curse of the North: I” was recorded and produced by Christiiaan Morris at Studio Litho, mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Toxic Holocaust) at Godcity Studios and mastered by Ed Brooke’s and RFI studios.

Curse of the North has toured and performed with bands such as: Red Fang, The Sword, Eyehategod, Destruction, Death Angel, Lord Dying, Valient Thorr, Kadavar, The Shrine, Saviours, The Hookers, Gypsyhawk and many more.
