MORGOTH - cover artwork for 'Ungod' album revealed
“When you have the mission to visualize a legendary band like Morgoth, you must seek ancient traditions to properly transmit classic darkness!“ Seth Siro Anton
MORGOTH have revealed the cover artwork for their upcoming studio album 'Ungod', which is set to be released on March 30th, 2015 in Europe and April 7th, 2015 in North America through Century Media Records. The atmosphere of 'Ungod' was perfectly captured by Greek cover designer Seth Siro Anton (Paradise Lost, Soilwork or also Moonspell, etc.), who transformed it into an eerie piece of delusion and despair.
MORGOTH comments on the collaboration: “We are very happy to have worked with Seth for the cover artwork of the album. We knew it wouldn’t be very easy to put the title “Ungod” into a design that is vivid, brutal and aesthetic at the same time. We had received a couple of good different suggestions for the artwork, but Seth’s simply was the one who pictured exactly what was already in our minds. It can roughly be described as God drowning in the void, killing its own creation and becoming the “Ungod” - The dawn of the Antichrist.”
