Morgoth - Resurrection Absurd/The Eternal Fall ('89 - '90)

Genre: Death Metal
Country: Germany

Morgoth is one of those forgotten bands no one ever really talks about but generally deserves more discussion than they get.  Maybe their problem is that their best material was only on EP's and demos but its not like that's stopped anyone before.  Their riffs and songs had this sort of gloomy tinge to them that's more characteristic of the Finnish scene and that's probably why i like them as much as i do.  Not to mention the vox are like a mixed bag of Chuck Schuldiner, John Tardy, and Martin Van Drunen, which is awesome.  Here's their two best works, the 1989 EP Resurrection Absurd and the 1990 EP The Eternal Fall.  Of the two The Eternal Fall is the better and more unique but they both are essential listens for a promising band that was prematurely killed by the greatest plague death metal ever experienced: groove.

nothing is more metal than tolkien
