MorgothGerman destroyers Morgoth have parted ways with growler Marc Grewe, the only person to stand behind the microphone for the band since its inception in 1985. Addressing the issue, the death metal heroes issued the following statement on 5 December 2014:

“Today we must bring you the unfortunate news that we have parted ways with our longtime vocalist Marc Grewe. The chance for a further cooperation between us simply wasn’t possible anymore. This has been an extremely tough decision for us to make, and one that was not made easily, but we believe it to be the best for the band at this stage. That said, we are already working with a new vocalist on our upcoming album. The record will be entitled ‘Ungod’ and will be released in spring 2015 via Century Media Records. More details about the recordings and a string of new shows for next year will be revealed soon. Please notice: All upcoming confirmed shows will be performed as planned! Thank you and kind greetings, Morgoth”

No further announcements have been made by either party on why their co-operation was no longer possible.

No further information has been made available regarding the new singer’s identity, either. Meanwhile, however, a rough teaser from Morgoth’s upcoming album Ungod can be heard here:
