Fan-filmed video footage of German death metallers MORGOTH performing a new song, "Snakestate", on February 20 at Blastfest in Bergen, Norway can be seen below.
MORGOTH will release its 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".
The atmosphere of "Ungod" was perfectly captured by Greek cover designer Seth Siro Anton (PARADISE LOST, SOILWORK, MOONSPELL), who transformed it into an eerie piece of delusion and despair.
Comments MORGOTH: "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."
"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.
MORGOTH released its first-ever live album and DVD, "Cursed To Live", on June 25, 2012 via Century Media Records. The audio tracks were mixed at Unisound Studio in Sweden with Dan Swanö (OPETH, KATATONIA, DISSECTION).
