Download this song!

Author Comments

A cover of the acoustic instrumental from the Morbid Angel album Blessed Are the Sick. If you know the band then you know why its under heavy metal.



I love this track, and I love this album. This is beautiful. You nailed it. If you get around to it, you should maybe consider record yourself playing a track off Altars of Madness or Covenant, even? Either way, cheers!


I enjoyed the crisp and crystal-ish guitar sound, the reverb was very well mixed and the overall ambiance made me think of some water in a magic spring (I'm such a poet lol). The chord progression reminded me of a song by John 5, I think the song is called "2 Die 4". It an acoustic piece with a similar ambiance. I don't have anything to complain about since it's perfect. 5'd.

sweet ill check it out, and in the meantime listen to some morbid angel.

Acoustical <3!

Very cool man. Full acoustical recording or half-acoustic? Anyways, fucking nice. Never really was into Morbid Angel but I guess it's worth checking out. ;)

Somehow this track reminds me of "Secret of Evermore" for the SNES. It does match a song thar.

Btw...1:47...lol? Fuck up or what? xD

Sounds strange in the outro note progression if you ask me but either way the track is very nice. Chills ma nills.


Eternalreich responds:

This recording was full acoustic with a mic. Over my right shoulder and added wind effects, that kinda sound like waves too.

Secret of Evermore is one o my favorite games but i can't place the song.

Not a fuck up at all thats how the song goes, i tried to do it justice. Thanks for the killer view brother.

Really nice.

That's a good acoustic. And good playing. I don't think I've heard much Morbid Angle, but I think I'll check it out.

Now, take a five and keep it up.

Eternalreich responds:

oh man you MUST listen to Morbid. I would recomend Gateways to Annihlation, Domination, Formulas Fatal to the Flesh. but they are all fucking killer.


I was listening to the Blessed are the Sick album a few months back and when I got to this track I played it about 10 times. Fucking excellent, and your cover is perfect!
Sorry I've not replied to your last messages, I've not been online for a while.
