Morgoth: video for "Traitor" launched
Morgoth:  video for "Traitor" launched
"Traitor, what have you done?
Traitor, to the unprotected ones
Traitor, your hands are stained with blood"

MORGOTH have recently shot a video clip for the song "Traitor", taken from the band's recently released and critically acclaimed comeback album "Ungod". The lyrics of "Traitor" deal with the topic of child soldiers. The disturbing pictures of the video perfectly underline this dark death metal tune with and its harsh lyrics. The video is brought to you by Metal Hammer Germany. Check it out here:


Harry Busse (guitar) comments about the song "Traitor" as follows: "The first idea that existed for 'Traitor' was the marching riff you find in the verse of the song. After we wrote the bridge and the chorus, the song was almost finished from its instrumental side. I still had no idea in which direction the lyrics should go. Only when Sebastian came up with the clean guitar, that introduces and completes the song, did I have the idea for a theme that would perfectly match the sadness and desperation of this interlude, followed by the brutality and mercilessness of the song itself. A child soldier, betrayed by the ones supposed to protect him, betrayed by the "Traitor'."

The previously released live video for the song "Voice Of Slumber" still can be found here:


Both clips were directed by Dirk Behlau for Pixeleye Interactive, who is known from his work with bands such as Arch Enemy, Dr. Living Dead! and others.

MORGOTH's new album "Ungod" is available as a standard CD version, a limited Digipak version with extended booklet and two bonus tracks, on LP (180 g vinyl, printed inner sleeve) as well as digital download/stream. Get your copy here:
