Extrinsic Pathway from Traditional Death Metal foursome MORGENGRAU will be released Tuesday April 2, 2013 through Blind God Records.
The debut effort from the Austin band 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! Yeah, MORGENGRAU are the real deal, folks. 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.”
Extrinsic Pathway will be available direct from the band via BandCamp, as well as through CDBaby, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, AmazonMP3 and Rhapsody. The album was recorded at Amplitude Media in Austin, TX and mixed/mastered at Endarker Studio, Sweden by Magnus (Devo) Andersson of MARDUK.
Album cut “Antithetical” is streaming at this location.
MORGENGRAU will make their NYC debut at the Martyrdoom Fest on Friday, June 28. For details and ticket info visit www.facebook.com/

Come walk the Extrinsic Pathway with MORGENGRAU. Hailing from Austin, Texas, MORGENGRAU is dedicated to the craft of classic death metal. Since their inception in 2010, they 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.
