MORGOTH picture
MORGOTH are a German, Meschede, North Rhine-Westphalia based death metal/ industrial metal act formed in 1985. The band were one of leaders of the european death metal scene in the early to mid nineties. MORGOTH released two EPs ( "Resurrection Absurd" and "The Eternal Fall") in 1989 and 1990, before releasing their debut full-length studio album "Cursed" in 1991. The band changed direction on their second full-length studio album "Odium" (1993) by including industrial elements to their core death metal sound. "Odium" is still a death metal album though which can´t be said about the band´s final album "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic" (1996) which completely took the plunge into a KILLING JOKE like industrial metal sound. MORGOTH split-up in 1998.

MORGOTH reunited in 2010 and released the "Cursed to Live" live album in 2012. The first taste of new music came with the release of the 2014 "God is Evil"

MORGOTH Ungod

Album · 2015 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Ungod" is the 4th full-length studio album by German death metal act Morgoth and the first studio album by the band since "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic" from 1996. The album was released through Century Media Records in March 2015. Morgoth disbanded in 1998, but reunited in 2010 to play select shows. The reunion became a bit more serious along the way and Morgoth released the "Cursed to Live" live album in 2012. The "God Is Evil" single from August 2014 was the first new studio recording by the band since "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic (1996)" though and it was meant as a teaser for a new full-length studio album. However before entering the studio to record "Ungod" lead vocalist Marc Grewe left the band, and was shortly after replaced by Karsten "Jagger" Jäger (Disbelief). "Ungod" was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Sound Division Tonstudio Sundern, Germany in November-December 2014.

If Morgoth had continued the trend of changing their sound radically between studio album, as they did on the three albums released in the 90s, it would have been hard to predict the music style on "Ungod". But as they predominantly chose to focus on material from "Cursed (1991)" and the preceeding EPs (with a few nods toward the material from "Odium (1993)") on "Cursed to Live (2012)", and the two tracks from the "God Is Evil (2014)" single is old school death metal through and through, it isn´t too surprising that the music style on "Ungod" is old school sounding death metal. There are a few nods toward "Odium (1993)", but other than that it´s mostly "Cursed (1991)" and the early EPs which "Ungod" sounds like.

The compositional quality is relatively high throughout the album although there aren´t many tracks which stand out. I´d mention album opener "House of Blood", video track "Voice of Slumber", and the re-recorded version of "God is Evil", as some of the highlights. "Ungod" features 11 tracks and full playing time of 46:23. Out of those 11 tracks, 2 are instrumentals. The title track is one of them and at 6:13 it overstays it´s welcome by at least a couple of minutes, while the closing "The Dark Sleep" (which is the other instrumental on the album) is a bit more interesting. The rest of the material is of a good quality but not spectacular.

It´s obvious that Morgoth are a seasoned bunch of guys, and the musicianship is on a high level throughout. New lead vocalist Karsten "Jagger" Jäger does a very good Marc Grewe impersonation, and while that ensures that "Ungod" sounds unmistakably like Morgoth even though there is a new lead vocalist singing, I think I would have preferred to have heard a more personal vocal delivery from Jäger. "Ungod" features a raw and well sounding production which suits the music perfectly, and upon conclusion "Ungod" is a decent comeback album by Morgoth. It´s not another death metal classic like some of the band´s earlier releases, but less will do, and it´s great to have them back. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

MORGOTH God Is Evil

Single · 2014 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"God is Evil" is a single release by German death metal act Morgoth. The single was released through Century Media Records in August 2014. "God is Evil" marks the studio recording comeback for the German death metal veterans and features the first new original material recorded by the band since "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic (1996)". Morgoth initially disbanded in 1998 but reunited in 2010, playing sporadic gigs, and in 2012 they released the "Cursed to Live" live album, which mainly focused on the early old school death metal part of their discography.

Therefore it´s not surprising that "God is Evil" does not continue where the industrial rock/metal tinged "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic (1996)" left off. Listening to the 2 tracks on the 7:48 minutes long single, it´s obvious that the band have gone for a sound that´s as close as possible to the sound of their most celebrated release "Cursed (1991)". So this is pretty much "classic" old school US, Florida influenced death metal and references to acts like Obituary and late 80s Death are as obvious now as they were back when "Cursed (1991)" was released. Actually to a point where I was unsure if it was Obituary playing when the title track kicks in, but Morgoth soon start to play their signature riffs and Marc Grewe also settles on a more personal vocal style.

Quality wise the title track is a memorable, raw, and brutal death metal track, fully on par with their late 80s/early 90s material, while "Die as Deceiver" is slightly less interesting. It´s less catchy and overall just a bit more standard in quality. The sound production is raw and powerful, and suits the music well. The single is arguably an enjoyable old school death metal listening experience, but it´s overall slightly less interesting, than I had hoped for. Still it´s a promising recording comeback for Morgoth and a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

MORGOTH Cursed to Live

UMUR
"Cursed to Live" is a live album release by German death metal act Morgoth. The album was released through Century Media Records in June 2012 and marks Morgoth´s comeback after they initially disbanded in 1998. "Cursed to Live" was recorded at the Way Of Darkness Festival, Lichtenfels, Germany on October the 7th 2011. The band reunited in 2010 and played sporadic gigs, but "Cursed to Live" is their first recording in 14 years. Germany didn´t produce as many high profile death metal acts in the early nineties as countries like USA and Sweden, but Morgoth were one of the few prolific acts from the country (Atrocity (early) were another act that deserve a mention). They released a couple of EPs and two highly acclaimed studio albums in "Cursed (1991)" and "Odium (1993)", but then turned towards a more alternative/industrial sound on "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic (1996)", which wasn´t received very well by neither fans nor critics...

...on "Cursed to Live" the band only concentrate on playing material from the two EPs, "Resurrection Absurd (1989)" and "The Eternal Fall (1990)", and from "Cursed (1991)" and "Odium (1993)". The much criticised "Feel Sorry for the Fanatic (1996)" is not represented by a single track. "Odium (1993)", which had already alienated some of the most hardcore old school death metal fans, is only represented by "Resistance" and "Under the Surface", so it´s safe to say that Morgoth went "back to the roots" on this release. Their most popular release "Cursed (1991)" is represented by no less than seven tracks. I´m sure most fans of the band are happy with the tracklist, but personally I could have wished for more tracks from "Odium (1993)", which to my ears is one of the best death metal albums out there. Still it´s hard to complain when we´re treated with one death metal classic after another. Tracks like "Body Count", "Exit to Temptation", "Sold Babtism" and "Burnt Identity" are old school death metal at it´s best.

The performance of the tracks is also flawless. Great energy and a really convincing vocal performance by Marc Grewe, who sounds a bit different from how he sounds on the studio releases, but no less powerful, aggressive and brutal. His interaction with the audience in his native tongue is perfectly measured and adds to the great energy of the recording. The whole thing is packed in a powerful and raw sound production where all instruments are audible in the mix.

It´s not often death metal live albums put a smile on my face. They are often true copies of the studio recordings but with poorer sound quality or in most cases lo-fi recordings that don´t do the music much justice. I´ve been left frustrated time and again. I´ve often had the thought that extreme metal live concerts in general work much better when you are actually present at the concert than it does on albums. It´s simply hard to capture the raw live energy and brutal sound of the performances on tape, but "Cursed to Live" are thankfully one of the few exceptions to that rule and a 4 star (80%) rating is fully deserved. Welcome back!

MORGOTH Cursed

Cursed is the debut full-length studio album by German death metal act Morgoth. The album was released in April 1991 by Century Media Records. The band had already released a couple of critically acclaimed EPs in Resurrection Absurd (1989) and The Eternal Fall (1990) and Cursed was a much anticipated release for fans of the band. A lineup change had taken place since the release of The Eternal Fall as lead vocalist Marc Grewe gave up the bass duties. New bassist was Sebastian Swart. Cursed went on to become quite succesful, which was also helped on the way by promotional videos for the songs Isolated and Sold Baptism.

Morgoth have honed both their playing skills but also their songwriting skills on Cursed compared to the music on the two EPs. The music on Cursed is still unmistakably the sound of Morgoth though. old school death metal with Marc Grewe´s distinct brutal vocals in front. His Chuck Schuldiner meets John Tardy type vocal delivery is greatly enjoyable IMO. He sure is brutal but not undecipherable. The 9 tracks ( Cursed is a 2 minute intro and Darkness is a 3 minutes long kind of outro track, so there are actually only 7 "real" death metal tracks on the album) are all well written old school death metal tracks and each of the tracks are memorable and different from the others. Tracks like Body Count, Exit to Temptation, Opportunity Is Gone and Sold Babtism stand out IMO but there´s not a single sub par track on Cursed. It´s a highly consistent album. As the playing time is 40 minutes the album never overstays its welcome either. A perfect length.

The production by Dirk Draeger is detailed and powerful. Cursed always stood out soundwise because it didn´t have one of the time typical Sunlight or Morrisound Studios productions.

Morgoth is often labelled a "cult" death metal act but I find that label a bit unjust. Because not only were they very successful in the early nineties, but Cursed should also be considered a seminal death metal album IMO. The album has got a distinct sound which is something that can´t be said about a great many death metal albums. A 4 star rating is fully deserved. I find Cursed highly recommendable to fans of old school death metal.

MORGOTH Resurrection Absurd / The Eternal Fall

Boxset / Compilation · 1990 · Death Metal

Resurrection Absurd / The Eternal Fall is a compilation album by pioneering German death metal act Morgoth. The compilation contains the two first EP releases by the band Resurrection Absurd (1989) and The Eternal Fall (1990). The compilation was released in 1991 by Century Media Records.

The 10 tracks from the two EPs are some of the earliest examples of German death metal and in that respect both EPs are quite essential. Morgoth´s music is brutal death metal but with memorable hooks and the strong vocals by Marc Grewe. His Chuck Schuldiner meets John Tardy type vocal delivery is greatly enjoyable IMO. The tracks from the The Eternal Fall is a notch better than the tracks from Resurrection Absurd but the quality is high throughout. The same can be said about the sound production.

Resurrection Absurd / The Eternal Fall is a great opportunity to get two EPs that are probably very hard to find in their original form on one CD and if you like your death metal old school, this compilation will certainly apply. Today Morgoth is often refered to as a German "cult" death metal act, which I feel is an unjust description. Back when Morgoth released their EPs and albums they were considered one of the leading acts on the death metal scene and most of their releases received high praise from the metal community back then. Time seems to have forgotten them though which is rather sad really. A 3.5 star rating is deserved.
