Out of fire-blasted Texas comes Morgengrau returning with sophomore album â€œBlood Oracle. The band’s German name belies its American origins just as much as its combination of Euro-death riffs and rhythms with the Floridian originators of the genre will keep listeners guessing. With a vicious approach reminiscent of Asphyx Pestilence Deicide and Celtic Frost â€œBlood Oracleâ€ is eight tracks deep with the kind of death metal that the genre’s most loyal fans will devour. It was produced by the great Harris Johns (Celtic Frost Kreator Pestilence Voivod and too many more to list) ensuring that its sound is honed to a fine edge. Featuring atmospheric artwork by Nick Keller (who has done concept paintings for numerous movies including The Lord of the Rings and Mad Max: Fury Road in addition to his stellar cover art for many bands) this album aims to surpass in every way Morgengrau’s self-released debut.
