Gruesome - Twisted Prayers - promo album cover - 2018 - #233MO33ILMG

“While cribbing the raw sound and style of Death circa Leprosy and Scream Bloody Gore seems like a manageable task given the music’s proud primitivism, achieving Schuldiner’s progression as he distanced himself from mere mortals is a formidable leap. But Exhumed mainman Matt Harvey and collaborators including Gus Rios of Malevolent Creation somehow create an album that works as both tribute and original art…” — Decibel

Twisted Prayers, the newest full-length from death metal defenders of the old GRUESOME, is out NOW via Relapse Records.

Stream it in full below or at THIS LOCATION. 

If you missed it, view the band’s NSFW video for “Fatal Illusions” as well as the Jeffrey Sisson-directed video for “Inhumane” and lyric video for “A Waste Of Life” HERE.

GRUESOME recently partnered with Decibel Magazine to share their cover of “Legion Of Doom” by Chuck Schuldiner’s pre-Death project Mantas. The recording was included the June 2018 issue as a special pictured flexi disc. Stream the exclusive track at THIS LOCATION.

GRUESOME – featuring current and former members of Exhumed, Possessed, Malevolent Creation, and more – returns with its second full-length, Twisted Prayers. The eight-track offering follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. Recorded at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) who has been instrumental in crafting the band’s sonic homage, Twisted Prayers features GRUESOME doing what they do best across over forty minutes of unholy hymns with lurid melodies and vulgar atmospheres. The band has once again teamed up with the legendary artist Ed Repka (Death, Atheist, Massacre) for the album’s blasphemous cover art in addition to legendary Death guitarist James Murphy (Death, Obituary, Testament) for a pair of special guest guitar solos. Bow your heads and worship at the altar of GRUESOME!

GRUESOME‘s Twisted Prayers is available on CD, LP, deluxe LP, cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages are available via Relapse.com HERE and digital downloads/streaming services at THIS LOCATION. The deluxe LP edition of the album includes an accompanying flexi disc featuring companion artwork and a cover of Possessed’s “The Exorcist.”

GRUESOME has announced two exclusive shows in Florida with label mates Exhumed before kicking off a European headlining tour this summer.

“…an extreme reminder of what Death accomplished through seven records and a reason to revisit the work of one of the genre’s architects and symbolic teacher.” – Covering The Scene

“…every track on Twisted Prayers features some truly warped and shreddy solos. Harvey and Daniel Gonzalez set the fretboards ablaze on ‘Lethal Legacy,’ ‘A Waste Of Life’ and on the album-closing title track which can only be described as a tapping buffet.” – Ghost Cult

“…the most technical GRUESOME album to date.” – Metal Trenches
