Germany's Morgoth are set to release their new studio album,Ungod, on March 30th in Europe and April 7th in North America via Century Media Records.

The band has also premiered the track "Black Enemy,"which you can listen to below.

Ungodwill contain 11 tracks and is the first to feature new vocalist Karsten "Jagger" Jager (also of Disbelief).

The band released the following statement regarding Ungod:

"After 18 years we can finally present a first glimpse at our new full-length album, 'Ungod'! We started with the songwriting in January 2013 and finished the recording process by the end of December 2014.

It was an awesome experience to go through the sometimes very complex and challenging process of writing and recording an album again.

Our goal was to present some real MORGOTH-style Death Metal, which closes the gap between 'Cursed' and 'Odium'. We hope that we have achieved this goal and our supporters and friends will like the final outcome.

The idea behind the song 'Black Enemy' is that this evil force rests within all of us and all we can do is trying to keep that beast under control.

The 'Black Enemy' represents the dark and destroying part inside of us and the lyrics deal with someone who is not able to control it anymore, committing a murder in the end."
