Album Review: Morgoth - Ungod (7/10)

Morgot UngodFollowing At the Gates’ 2014 first studio LP in 19 years, fellow European death-metallers Morgoth follow suit with a new record that’s the same number of years in the waiting. Ungod likely won’t crack as many album-of-the-year lists as At War With Reality did, but that’s no knock on these German diehards. Proving they haven’t grown soft with age, the band lays down a brutal assault from start to finish, even on the titular instrumental track, which could’ve easily functioned as a six-minute smoke break. – Kurt Orzeck
