Texan death metallers Morgengrau offer up some very raw, organically gory death metal on 'Blood Oracle'. The album opens with this doom-influenced riff but don't let the plodding, chugfest fool you, it's about to get messy in here. At the halfway point, the gloves come off and the band delivers an uppercut straight to the jaw. The majority of the album is heavy and unyielding but the final track returns you to that doom-laden riffage and is a perfect way to wrap things up. The vocals are more of a mix of blackened death than straight forward death growls but they work really well. The production was a touch low but still allows you to hear everything without muddying the waters. Definitely a fun listen for sure.
