What could you call a power trio that veers seamlessly between shredding peaks, jazzy moods and fat funky grooves? Morglbl, of course! Often compared to Primus meeting Steve Vai, Morglbl hits like a heavyweight jab and makes you laugh while you bleed! Morglbl ~ the punch you don't see coming!

Biography

Mörglbl, led by extraordinary guitarist Christophe Godin, gained international acclaim with the release of their first two CD's in 1998 and 1999, but it was "Grötesk" in 2007 which gained Mörglbl considerable renown in the US capped by their jaw dropping breakout performance at NEARfest that year.

In 2005 Godin was voted 5th best international guitarist by a magazine readers poll and is widely known as the best in France. When a student asked how he got to be so good, Godin joked it was because he crosses his eyes to watch each hand simultaneously. Later the poor kid came to him in tears after attempting this for weeks and failing!

Mörglbl is anchored by Ivan Rougny on Bass and Aurelien Ouzoulias on drums. Their music is a careening high-speed chase with amazingly tight turns and startlingly quick yet fluid starts, stops, and transitions. It's fusion with a metal edge and a whole lot of humor just to keep it sane. Once you've seen them live you'll know you've been Mörglbled!
