Morgana Lefay were one of the first metal bands I found through this forum as a teenager, and I've just revisited the material to remember that they're such a heavy "non-cheesy" power metal band, and their stuff still holds up. After Aberrations of The Mind I guess they disappeared.. does anyone know what they're up to nowadays??

They are playing gigs so there is still a glimmer of hope.

Seeing them on Sunday. For the first time. I am excited as fuck. LOVE their discography, Maleficium is one of my favorite albums and Charles Rytkonen is definitely one of my favorite vocalists ever.

I'll try and ask what are the plans for the future. They reunited two or three years ago, did some shows. Then Tony Eriksson (gtr, primary songwriter) left the band for a while (2017, after they were booked for fest in my hometown! That was cancelled and that sucked ass) and now he is back. Hopefully for good.

First band I saw live, and will see them again at the Stockholm Slaughter festival in april. Great great band...

They hinted a few years ago that they have been writing new material, but the chances of a new album seeing light of day are slim it seems.

Looks like they're doing Stockholm Slaughter again next year, as well.

I saw them in Headbangers Open Air, but I just couldn't quite get into them. Then again, they just performed right after Manilla Road, that's a hard band to go after.

This thread inspired me to give them a go and I'm curious as to a good album recommendation. I tried Sanctified but it didn't quite grab me.

Grand Materia was always my favorite. I'm probably due to go revisit them sometime soon - great band, very unique style.

Maleficium was and always will be my favorite. Fantastic concept album. It's a grower album. Try watching Maleficium, the videoclip. It's what got me into them.

Seventh Seal is also a great album. As is SOS. As is The Secret Doctrine. As is Grand Materia. And Sanctified will click.

(I really love Morgana Lefay!)

They seemed to be popular in the 90s pre-Hammerfall before there were a lot of PM bands to choose from (at least on decent-sized labels). That's my recollection at least.

Maleficium was really great too, yeah.

Since all their shit is on Spotify I am checking out some stuff I never heard like the 'Knowing Just As I' album. This is some great stuff. Just badass, ripping heavy metal with a great gritty, meaty guitar tone and killer Savatage-esque riffs. "Red Moon" is first rate.
