Morgoth - The Eternal Fall/Resurrection Absurd
From the Sauerland hailed Death Metal combo MORGOTH. Their EP "Resurrection Absurd" originally had been planned as a demo, but convinced Century Media right away, so that they pressed the whole thing on vinyl. A bit later the second EP "The Eternal Fall" followed suit, which in turn got released on CD, together with the first EP.

Back then MORGOTH also had not been really original, DEATH and AUTOPSY definitely have been among the biggest influences of the band. But the CD has got something going. The thing presses and presses and… With all the pressing I almost have shit in my pants now! Anyways, what the band belts out here drives your eyes from your head. It was quite something!

More filigree than lumberjack Metallers such as MASTER or SARCOFAGO and more chunky than for example MORBID ANGEL on "Altars Of Madness", MORGOTH play the ultimate Death reign with incredible passion and fire in their souls. Guaranteed memorability! Songs such as the two grenades "White Gallery" and especially the incredibly great "Pits Of Utumno" have to stand in every good Death Metal collection.

Not that the rest of the songs was weak, God no, but these two hammers go into the ear immediately. And Marc Grewe's vocals then give you the rest. The production also is damn powerful, as said before, it presses and presses and …now I have to go damn fast! (Online January 29, 2004)
