Biography

Ontario, Canada (2001 – 2008)

Cursed was a band featuring former and current members of numerous other Canadian bands spanning from the early 1990s to the present, such as Haymaker, Left for Dead, The Swarm aka Knee Deep In the Dead, Acrid, Ruination, The Black Hand, Countdown to Oblivion, At the Mercy of Inspiration, Shallow North Dakota, Crux of Aux, Quest for Fire, Burning Love and more.

Formed in 2001 a year after the break-up of The Swarm aka Knee Deep in the Dead (three members’ previous band), the founding lineup was originally split between different parts of Quebec and Ontario, Canada, but (following Moumneh’s sudden move home to Lebanon), shifted to Toronto and Hamilton. Known for their trademark nihilistic and dystopian lyrical themes, stark classic horror imagery and loud, abrasive live shows, the band have toured worldwide and released records on Boston’s Deathwish Inc, Ontario’s Goodfellow Records, Syracuse’s hex records and Providence’s Trash Art. Cursed’s debut One made immediate impact in their scene and garnered wide cult support. It was followed up with Cursed Two, and the picture-disc EP Blackout at Sunrise in between, in the same year that also saw a release of a 180gr vinyl only gatefold reissue of 2003’s “I” on the Providence RI label Trash Art. In 2007 they finished up their third LP, III: Architects of Troubled Sleep, which was released in 2008 through Goodfellow Records in North America, Howling Bull in Japan and in Europe through Dutch label Reflections.
