Morgoth: MORGOTH - "God Is Evil" single out now!
"God Is Evil", the long awaited first studio recording since 1996 of Germany's most influential death metal band, MORGOTH, has finally been released!
The "God Is Evil" single contains two brand new studio tracks, the title track as well as "Die As Deceiver", and comes with a powerful artwork by Costin Chioreanu / www.twilight13media.com, who also worked with bands like Arch Enemy, Grave, Darkthrone and many more.
Check out a swift video teaser containing recording studio footage for the release here: www.youtube.com
"God Is Evil" is available as digital download and also as 7inch vinyl release on black vinyl as well as limited gold-coloured vinyl (300 copies worldwide only *). Check out the links below to obtain "God Is Evil" in the format of your choice:

* Attention! The 7inch has been exclusively offered on last weekend's PartySan Open Air. All copies of the golden vinyl version were sold out in no time. If you are dying to get one of those rare items, get in touch with the band directly at www.facebook.com. They are the only ones who might have some copies left.
Next up, MORGOTH will team up with mighty Bolt Thrower for a European tour in September and October! And next to "God Is Evil", MORGOTH will also have two more classic releases out in time for the tour: The band's legendary "Pits Of Utumno" demo from 1988 (to be re-issued on vinyl and digitally) and the infamous, long time unavailable "Odium" album from 1993 (to be re-released on CD, LP and as digital download). Stay tuned for more details and pre-order links for both special re-releases soon!
In other news, MORGOTH have recently been confirmed to appear at Wünnstock Open Air in Bad Wünnerberg / Paderborn on Saturday, August 23rd. This show as well the Turock Open Air event a week later will serve as "release shows" for "God Is Evil" and as suitable introduction for the band's new material in a live situation, before the tour with Bolt Thrower (which is sold out in most places already, so take notice!) kicks off.
