Led by guitarist Christophe Godin and Ivan Rougny on bass, Mörglbl gained an international following with the release of their first two albums in 1997 and 1998. Years of constant touring required the band take a break. By 2007 Mörglbl released Grötesk which drove their popularity all over the globe -particularly in the USA – and were invited to perform at Europe’s famous FrankZappa tribute festival, ZAPPANALE.
Mörglbl shifted in late 2007 when drummer Aurélien Ouzoulias joined the band and kicked them into high gear ultimately resulting in 2009’s highly acclaimed Jazz ForThe Deaf.
2008 saw Mörglbl become the smash surprise of NEARfest X, America’s largest progressive rock music festival where the stunned audience gave a standing ovation and cheered through a double encore.
Intensive touring throughout Europe, Russia, China and the US followed right through 2012’s Brutal Romance album. Along the way they shared the stage with the likes of Liquid Tension Experiment, Panzerballet, Freak Kitchen, Echoline, and Umphrey’s McGee.
Often described as Primus meets Steve Vai or The Beatles meet Pantera, Mörglbl’s live performances veer toward the crazy by mixing substantial metal riffs with subtle jazz harmonies, deep pocket grooves, and their trademark goofball humor.
Mörglbl’s 6th album Tea Time For Punks drops in April 2015.
