Dutch death metal moloch Bloodgod, featuring (former) members of Disquiet, Hymir and Nuestros Derechos, have revealed details of their upcoming release. Titled ‘Catharsis’, the band’s second EP will see the foul light of day on March 15, 2017.
Five brand new tracks were recorded and mixed at Mass Audio Studio in the Netherlands, and mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Jacob Hansen (Aborted, Mercenary, Volbeat, Pestilence, etc) in Denmark.
The artwork, created by Lisa Röttjers, depicts ‘t Schrickelik Tempeest’, meaning ‘the horrible tempest’ in old Dutch. It refers to the song with the same title and lyrics about the violent storm of August 1, 1674 that hit the episcopal cathedral in the band’s hometown and turned it into ruins.

Following the release of their debut EP ‘Pseudologia Phantastica’ (2013), Bloodgod shared the stage with Can of Worms, Cryptopsy, Skeletal Remains, and Terrorizer among others, and played several festivals including Big Ass Metal Fest, Angelfest Doetinchem and Frisian Brotherhood Fest.
