Texas death metal troupe MORGENGRAU will release their debut album, Extrinsic Pathway, on April 2nd via Blind God Records.
Extrinsic Pathway features eight tracks of classic death metal in the vein of PESTILENCE, ASPHYX, and IMMOLATION. In other words, death metal in the early '90s style. Extrinsic Pathway explores the left hand path, atrocities and suffering. No politicizing, proselytizing or preaching - just head banging, double bass and catchy riffs. In the words of the band: "We play, you fuck yourself up in the pit. Simple."
The album was recorded at Amplitude Media in Austin, TX and mixed/mastered at Endarker Studio in Sweden by Magnus (Devo) Andersson of MARDUK. The tracklisting is as follows:
'The White Death'
'Grave Of Lies'
Since their inception in 2010, Morgengrau have established themselves as a formidable live act, garnering particular attention due to being fronted by former IGNITOR front woman, Erika (Tandy) Morgengrau, and ex-MANIFESTATION drummer, Reba Carls. Both women are well known in the Texas scene for their fierce performances, with Erika having fronted several other well-known bands of various genres, including AUTUMN TEARS. The band focuses conceptually on death worship in all its forms: war, occultism, and horror.
