MORGOTH Issues Lyric Video For “Snakestate”

Tuesday, 24th February 2015

Long-running German death metallers MORGOTH have released the lyric video for “Snakestate,” a song from their forthcoming Ungod album. The album is due on March 30 in Europe and April 7 in North America via Century Media.

Says the band: “We started with the songwriting in January 2013 and finished the recording process by the end of December 2014. It was an awesome experience to go through the sometimes very complex and challenging process of writing and recording an album again.

“Our goal was to present some real MORGOTH-style death metal, which closes the gap between ‘Cursed’ and ‘Odium’. We hope that we have achieved this goal and our supporters and friends will like the final outcome.The idea behind the song ‘Black Enemy’ is that this evil force rests within all of us and all we can do is trying to keep that beast under control. The ‘Black Enemy’ represents the dark and destroying part inside of us and the lyrics deal with someone who is not able to control it anymore, committing a murder in the end.”

Ungod was recorded, mixed and mastered in November and December 2014 by Jörn Michutta and Matthias Klinkmann at Sound Division Tonstudio in the band’s initial home area of Sauerland, Germany, after having already successfully tested the studio for the God Is Evil EP.

MORGOTH recently recruited singer Karsten “Jagger” Jäger (DISBELIEF) to replace the band’s longtime vocalist Marc Grewe.
