Producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL) recently stated: “I have been working with ENGEL since their very first rehearsal room demos and already back then they sounded like a million bucks!! I have been most fortunate to be working on the last two albums and taking part in this amazing band evolving into what they are today: a strange yet extremely powerful mix between MORBID ANGEL and BON JOVI, hehe… Strange… Crazy… But almost true. They write extremely catchy songs that stick in your mind forever. The faultless playing and musicianship is outstanding. I am already waiting eagerly for the next album to happen which I hope to be a part of again.”

“Blood of Saints” is available for pre-order on Season of Mists e-shop and the exclusive “Songs for the Dead” digital EP can be purchased on iTunes.
