Morbid Angel releases Blessed Are the Sick

Blessed Are the Sick is the second official release from death metal band Morbid Angel.

It features an overall slower musical sound, although containing very fast riffs, and reveals another side of the band, with classical music undertones (main composer Trey Azagthoth would dedicate this album to Mozart). Tracks 8, 9, 10 and 12 are re-recorded songs, including material from the 1986 unofficial demo, Abominations of Desolation.

The cover painting is "Les Trésors de Satan" by Jean Delville (1867-1952).
