It's been three years since Gruesome's 2015 full-length debut album Savage Land, though to be fair the band has filled the time between with two excellent EP releases since then. Now we've been informed that Gruesome will release their second full length, titled Twisted Prayers, sometime this summer via Relapse Records! The album was recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida, and "follows Death's paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era." So get stoked, because Gruesome is clearly about to bring you back to the old-school realm of killer death metal.
Gruesome remains guitarist and vocalist Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Expulsion), guitarist Daniel Gonzalez (Possessed), bassist Robin Marzen (Castrator, Derkéta), and drummer Gus Rios (Evil Amidst, Upon Infliction). The band has also announced a European tour for this July and August, and you can get those dates below.
