Morgion (band)

Morgion was a

On April 19, 2008, former members Boardman (Vocals/Guitars), Christian (Bass), Griffith (Vocals/Guitars/Keyboards) and Surowski (Drums) played a short Morgion set at the Murderfest in Hollywood, California to commemorate the release of Relapse Records' "Morgion: The Relapse Years." The appearance was planned to be the "Solinari" lineup, but a fallout between members changed plans. The Relapse release contains the recordings "Among Majestic Ruin" and "Solinari," along with previously unreleased songs, demos and rehearsal tracks from the Relapse era, all remastered February 2008 by Griffith and Mathais Schneeburger (whom co-produced the albums "Solinari" and "Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth").

A compilation of early demo recordings entitled "God of Death & Disease" was released in 2012 by Dark Descent Records. The original "Solinari" lineup was invited to play a reunion gig at Maryland Deathfest in 2012, but the bassist sustained an arm injury that forced the band to reschedule the reunion for the following year. Just a few short months before they were set to appear at Maryland Deathfest 2013, the lineup once again suffered a fallout between members and were forced to cancel their appearance.

Dragonlance, coinciding with their debut Rabid Decay and is where the band took their name from. Their album 'Solinari' is also named after a god in the Dragonlance world, Solinari as a god of magic and ruler of those who wear the white robes. Rhett Davis (lyrics and titles), not knowing his Dragonlance lore very well, stated that 'Solinari' was the black moon in Dragonlance lore, but 'Solinari' is in fact the name of the white moon. 'Nuitari' is the name of the black moon and, given the album artwork, is likely 'Solinari's' true intended album title.
