unnamed (12)

Since returning from a highly successful European tour with BOLT THROWER, German death metal pioneers MORGOTH have been working hard in the studio for their new album release, Ungod. Earlier this week however, the band revealed having parted ways with long-time vocalist Marc Grewe and commented: “The chance for a further cooperation between us simply wasn’t possible anymore”. In the meantime, MORGOTH has already announced that Karsten “Jagger” Jäger from Germany’s long-running metal act DISBELIEF will be handling the vocals on the upcoming album, as well as on all the next scheduled live shows for the band.

Ungod is currently being mixed, and a (rough mix) teaser of new MORGOTH music featuring Jagger on vocals has already been launched online here: https://soundcloud.com/centurymedia/morgoth-ungod-teaser-rough/

Ungod will be released on March 30th in Europe and April 7th in North America via Century Media Records and will be celebrated with a string of very special release club shows in Germany with support by DESERTED FEAR, as well as local opening acts to be announced soon. See below for dates:
