32 Years Ago: MORBID ANGEL live in Tampa

MORBID ANGEL live on this day in 1986! The above video, shared by Mike Browning, is a different angle to the more familiar video of this gig but only half the show. Full show below.

Here are some of the items you could order from the Covenant of Death PO Box in mid/late 1986 (including this gig on tape and video) :

4 advanced LP tracks.....................U.S.$ 5.00
live tape, 5/25/86, 45', soundboard....... 7.00
live video, 4/20/86, 6 trax, w/ close ups. 15.00
live video, 5/25/86, 50', no close ups.... 15.00

Taking place around the time they recorded Abominations of Desolation for Goreque Records, the lineup here includes Mike Browning on vocals/drums.

The set was part of a memorial day weekend festival held at the Rocky Point Beach Resort in Tampa. Other bands that weekend included HELLWITCH, MASSACRE and EXECUTIONER (pre-OBITUARY).

A soundboard audio recording exists and circulates. The video below, although complete, has its sound taken from the camera's microphone and is quite blown out.
