After 19 years the deadly teutonic death metal force of MORGOTH return with a brand new studio album. “Ungod” will be released on March 30th, 2015 in Europe and April 7th, 2015 in North America by Century Media Records. The album 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 albums, “Cursed” and “Odium”.
Today you can already check out one new track. It’s the album’s fourth song, ‘Black Enemy’, and a prime example of what’s to come:
MORGOTH comments on the new album and the new track as follows:
“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 parted ways with longtime vocalist Marc Grewe, who was replaced by Karsten “Jagger” Jäger (also in Disbelief). Jagger has already proven being the perfect fit for MORGOTH on his live debut in December and his performance on “Ungod” will further solidify the choice.
Be prepared for the return of MORGOTH and the coming of the “Ungod”.
