Mörglbl | Biography


A charming young girl once called to book the band for their first show. Before they even had a name ! M-ö-r-g-l-b-l was the first group of letters that came to Christophe's mind that day !!! Mörglbl was born !

Led by guitarist extraordinaire Christophe Godin as well as the phenomenal Ivan Rougny on bass, Mörglbl gained an international reputation with the release of their two first albums in 1997 and 1998.

In 2006, after a break of a few years, Mörglbl rebanded with the release of « Grötesk » (Laser's Edge 2007) and became quite popular all around the globe and particularly in the US.
In 2008, Aurélien Ouzoulias joined the band. An in demand drummer both for live performances and studio sessions, as well as an all styles performer, he gave a kick to the band's music. Mörglbl released « Jäzz for the Deaf » in 2009.

Mörglbl has released 4 albums for US record company Laser's Edge, and their 5th one, is to be released in early 2012 as well as a live DVD.

Mörglbl's live performances are crazy, and the band mixes together powerful metal riffs as well as subtle jazz harmonies, with a groovy attitude and their trademark goofy humor. The band is often described as Primus meets Steve Vai and Allan Holdsworth, with flavours of Frank Zappa !
