Mordkaul


New album from the Belgian death metal band Mordkaul…!!!.

On February 16, 2023, Part 1 of the new and second full-length album from Belgian melodic death metal band Mordkaul will be released, called ‘Feeding The Machine’.

“For I Am Machine” can be called the title track of that new album and is about man becoming a machine in today’s society. Heart and mind are biochemical engines. Replace endorfines with gasoline and become pure machine…

Where the songs on Dress Code: Blood were heavily inspired by the iconic Swedish death metal bands from the 90’s, For I Am Machine is one of those songs that go a step further than that. Expect more aggressive dual vocals, shredding solos and a full arsenal of blast beats and groovy parts.

Feeding The Machine – Part 1 was recorded at the end of Summer 2022 at Project Zero studio by Yarne Heylen. Just like with Dress Code: Blood, mixing and mastering was done by Dan Swanö. Release of the album is planned on February 16th 2023.

A dark and evil mood, an infernal drive, and incendiary vocals on top is how MORDKAUL likes to forge their killer songs.

The members of this Belgium based band share a mutual passion for melodic death metal, and with the splitting up of their former bands Diablo Blvd and Hell City, they finalized the tracks Tim Bekaert started writing a few years back.

In May 2020, MORDKAUL’s debut album Dress Code: Blood was recorded by Tommy Goffin (ex-Hell City) vocals, Tim Bekaert (exDiablo Blvd, ex-A Brand) and Vincent Noben (ex-Hell City) guitars and Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates, The Haunted,…) drums. Mixing and mastering of the album was done done by Dan Swano (Opeth, Bloodbath…). Soon after the recording, Jan Rammeloo (ex-Bliksem, Furia, Your Highness) and Tony Van den Eynde (exLeng Tch’e) joined forces. Dress Code: Blood was released in January 2021 on Wormholedeath Records.

After the release several successful and sold out shows where played to promote the debut album, ending in the summer of ‘22 with a killer and critically acclaimed performance at Alcatraz Festival (BE).

At the end of the summer ’22, Mordkaul went back to the studio to record their follow up album: Feeding The Machine.
