MORGOTH: New Album “Ungod” Due In March

Wednesday, 14th January 2015

German death metal veterans MORGOTH will release their new studio album, Ungod, on March 30 in Europe and April 7 in North America via Century Media. The CD will contain 11 tracks of dark and dismal death metal, combining the untamed ferocity of MORGOTH’s infamous EPs with the atmospheric density of the band’s two legendary full-length efforts, Cursed and Odium.

A new track titled “Black Enemy” can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.

Comments MORGOTH: “After 18 years, we can finally present a first glimpse at our new full-length album, Ungod!

“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.
