Mordkaul announces the release of their new album “Feeding The Machine”. Part 1 to be released on February 16th 2023
After the successful release of their debut album Dress Code: Blood in 2021, Belgian melodic death metal outfit MORDKAUL announces the release of their second album: Feeding The Machine.
Where Dress Code: Blood was heavily inspired by the iconic Swedish death metal bands from the 90’s, Feeding The Machine goes a step further than that. With wider influences of iconic 90’s death metal acts like Morbid Angel and Death, Feeding The Machine hits even harder.
With the typical aggressive vocals of Tommy complemented by the impressive grunts of the band’s new guitar player Stefan, the bar is raised even more. Expect the top class song writing from Tim, signature solos shredded by Vincent and the first Mordkaul recording of drum monster Tony including the full arsenal of blast beats and grooves.
To get the most out of the individual songs and promoting them to their best extent, Feeding The Machine is released in two parts. The focus for part one will be mainly on digital releases including several video clips and singles. Part 2 will be recorded in May 2023 to be released towards the end of Summer 2023. Once both parts are out, physical releases will be done as well.
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.

About the band
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.
