Swedish death metal act Blood Mortized will be releasing the new album "The Key To A Black Heart" via FDA Rekotz on May 18th, 2012. Drummer Mattias Borgh has now posted the following track by track description of the album:
1. Unleashing The Hounds
Album opener which we wrote with one thing in mind: go for your throat, kick you in the guts! A (for us old bastards anyway) fast song with a lot of two beat umpa-umpa drumming. This song has a slow doomy section in the middle which I like a lot, the tempo drops like a stone during this slow break down, which makes it really fun to play.
The spoken part in the middle was recorded into a mobilephone and then the mobile phone was recorded via a microphone, haha, but it did the trick it sounds very much like an old cassette recording haha!
The song title popped up in my head through an old joke we have in Arcana (where I also play) We met this really rich snobby guy when playing a gig and we had a joke about him ordering his Butler to "Unleash the hounds, spare no one" when some one poor person had trespassed his property, haha... The lyrics ended up dealing with some one having ehhh a bad realtionship and a very eeehh strange way of ending that relationship... Rick Rozz plays a great "Rick Rozz going crazy on the whammy bar" guitar solo on this one!
2. The Heretic Possession More...

Both the CD and the download version will feature the exclusive bonus track 'Shadow Of The Quarter Sun.' Expect a crushingly morbid cover and 12 page booklet and layout by Dutch tatoo meister and mega star Thomas Kynst.
"Chaos Records will take care of the mega exclusive gatefold vinyl release and the cassette release. Both the cassette and the vinyl will feature the exclusive bonus track 'Burn & Die.' The vinyl has face ripping artwork and layout by Thomas Kynst and the cassette release has artwork by the super talented Daniel Devilish. These releases are distributed by Code 7."
Drummer/producer Mattias Borgh comments on the album, "In a time when many people a long time ago, when it comes to recording an album, have thrown away their amps and real drum kits and by doing so have replaced imperfection with perfection by using the aid of computers, we have strived in the opposite direction. All drums were recorded in one take, no time correction or other modern trickery has been used, likewise for the guitars and bass were we used real tube amps pushed to their limits and a simple microphone set-up. What you hear is what we played, period! More...
