And yes, the rumours are true!.Morgoth are currently in the studio working on new material. We decided to team up with Jörn Michutta at Sound Division Tonstudio ( in Sundern, Germany for these sessions and the results are sounding seriously heavy.
The atmosphere and the creativity within the band have been inspiringly good in these past reunion years since 2011, so naturally new ideas started to come up. As consequence, we decided to take some months off from playing shows and properly focus on songwriting.
We expect to already have a brand-new single out before the tour, so stay tuned for more news and details soon!and see you on tour!!!"

In the year 2011 MORGOTH announced their long overdue return to the scene after almost 15 years of silence.
