Bloodportals 03:44
BLOODPORTALS based on the character “Levantin“ from the novel “Bloodportals“ by German Dark Fantasy author Markus Heitz my thoughtful face reflects in a puddle of rainwater the worms claim that water is the essence of life only few of the lowest had been chosen to learn that they just live to serve the high ones just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood and gore just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood shall take me home I traveled far – sailed an ocean of blood painted my desires in red lines on their skin countless servants would touch the divine by my grace still I am searching for the chosen one just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood and gore just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood shall take me home protectors of heaven who dare to stand in my way insist on justification – I am a god just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood and gore just one way out – bloodportals dark rites of blood shall take me home they shall take me home shall take me home bloodportals bloodportals bloodportals dark rites of blood shall take me home

THE ARCHITECT another breathless week lies behind you and the exhaustion is real everyday's life is crawling up your mind giving your thoughts no more room to breathe but you gotta breathe – inhale, exhale night and day – birth and death welcome to a world of duality if you could ask one question to the one and only almighty, all-knowing, omnipresent, intelligent force of the universe whoever that might be – what would you ask? think carefully, but don't rush the simple fact that these words finally found you states one thing for sure: your awakening has begun wake up so what would you ask? well, no matter what it is would it not be your very defining moment? I won't tell you what my question would be because you can only lead a man to the water but he needs to swim to the other side himself but I can tell you this: I can feel a purpose everywhere I can feel it within all materialized ideas that have been created by thoughts in the first place I can also feel it in the trees, in the water, and even in the wind maybe you don't see the connection yet, but you will as soon as you start tuning in to the thoughts of the architect

ASMODEUS based on the invisible chains that hold us back from chasing our dreams, whatever they might be... I can see the fire in your eyes, Asmodeus - you are not alone! magic rings and chains of fire cosmic wheel and 7 seals banished - far from desire black steel cage without a key forever banned - chokehold of aspiration child of the damned - disrupted by temptation Asmodeus - a demon soul, a heart of light Asmodeus - a demon soul alone tonight rusty chains and broken marrow solid stone - these walls are old a skeleton and broken arrows all are gone but one dark soul forever banned - chokehold of aspiration child of the damned - disrupted by temptation Asmodeus - a demon soul, a heart of light Asmodeus - a demon soul alone tonight forever banned - chokehold of aspiration child of the damned - disrupted by temptation Asmodeus - a demon soul, a heart of light Asmodeus - a demon soul alone tonight Asmodeus Asmodeus Asmodeus - a demon soul alone tonight

FOR A GREATER CAUSE the tides are changing – I can feel it deep within it has been written in the wind divine creation that once has been a paradise keeps on drowning in decadence and sin we came to reclaim what is left of us we traveled far to reach the edge we are the ones that have been touched by the hand of god but there's no heavenly applause not for the fame, not for them to know our name we came to die for a greater cause we came to die for a greater cause we came to die for a greater cause doubt is strong as we look into the eyes of the ones impaired by flames exalted spirit reconnects with what we are a hidden force within a name a spoken word – a mighty breeze as angels rise I feel serenity and peace as I let loose we are the ones that have been touched by the hand of god but there's no heavenly applause not for the fame, not for them to know our name we came to die for a greater cause men of this world are unaware of our fight we're planting seeds into their dreams throughout the night an angel of hope is putting scores into array listen closely and you might hear him play we are the ones that have been touched by the hand of god but there's no heavenly applause not for the fame, not for them to know our name we came to die for a greater cause

CHAMBER OF SOULS path of existence – the root of creation ancient knowledge that got lost underway I hear the whispers of god in my ear words of wisdom as my thoughts become clear "wake the children and break the control this world is more than just a chamber of souls" a constant threat – the queen of nuclear inferno she smiles at us – we'll never know when she'll spit I hear the whispers of god in my ear words of wisdom as my thoughts become clear "wake the children and break the control this world is more than just a chamber of souls" calling for signs about where to begin pawns poisoned by serpents from deep within "only one at a time, but make sure to do it fast we'll never know how much longer we last" I hear the whispers of god in my ear words of wisdom as my thoughts become clear "wake the children and break the control this world is more than just a chamber of souls" this world is more than just a chamber of souls this world is more than just a chamber of souls

VALLEY OF WOLVES based on the novel “Wolfsherz“ by German Fantasy author Wolfgang Hohlbein the valley lies in darkness – mountains rise on either side the air is cold and starts to whisper urban legends, tales of death face to face with evil – what could possibly go wrong? then a shot in the head and we were bound to go down silver shining fog blood on snow looks black at night an ice cold wind and the tears of a child in the valley of wolves I gave my life and lost my soul to the valley of wolves something's growing from within the strength of a mother to kill the demons of her past the will to protect and the force of desperation she embraces the child as life keeps drowning in blood I could escape from the valley but it won't leave me alone so take me home silver shining fog blood on snow looks black at night an ice cold wind and the tears of a child in the valley of wolves I gave my life and lost my soul to the valley of wolves now the beast is taking over moonlight addiction a hidden instinct rises and sharpens my awareness it's time to kill time to kill silver shining fog blood on snow looks black at night an ice cold wind and the tears of a child in the valley of wolves I gave my life and lost my soul to the valley of wolves I lost my soul forever and the beast keeps taking over like so many times before moonlight addiction a hidden instinct rises and sharpens my awareness it's time to kill time to kill

BRIMSTONE BAPTISM not based on but inspired by those characters from the novels “Ritus“ and “Sanctum“ (by German Dark Fantasy author Markus Heitz) that seek to find ways to get rid of their revenant curse while their nemeses seem to even embrace it the candlelight's my only friend the vial steady in my hand I'm sitting baffled on the floor dark souls knocking at my door I tallow warm blood on my skin hear ghost-like voices from within dark pathways to the realms of sin self exorcism – incantation brimstone baptism – blood hydration now eyes are burning – fingers bleed I keep on counting millet seed a whizzling noise – a rotten smell the holy water burns like hell waves of demons rain on me like blood that spills from arteries insights of past life tragedies self exorcism – incantation brimstone baptism – blood hydration now "my disciple! take these ancient scripts and follow the instructions to its very detail. you are going to trade hell on earth for the very depths of hell itself. remember: your demons won't haunt you any longer, but be aware that you will not be coming back..." self exorcism – incantation brimstone baptism – blood hydration now commencing transcendence as human flesh turns into mud my severing soul turns into a spirit soaked in blood

about

"Morbid Tales Of Terror" is so much more than just another GumoManiacs record. During the "Corona Pandemic Summer" of 2020 many artists were at the edge of losing everything and when GumoManiacs mastermind Daniel "Gumo" Reiss went on social media to tell his beloved Thrash Metal Family that there are no means left to keep going as a band the ultimate magic happened:
Within a few weeks the community sent enough financial means in the "Your Name In The Booklet" donation run to help make a seemingly lost album happen after all. Like this "Morbid Tales Of Terror" became a symbol of Heavy Metal unity during difficult times and therefore is clearly the most meaningful record the band has ever made.

Musically "Morbid Tales Of Terror" takes you out for a savage ride on 11 burning bullets of intense German Thrash Metal.
Huge powerful riffs that have been forged on the anvil of high class Metal guitar playing lay the foundation for Gumo's ripping guitar solos, that take a respectful bow to heroes like Michael Schenker or Dave Mustaine, while still passionately embracing the unique rawness of Teutonic Thrash Insanity.
The thunderous growl of the highly professional rhythm section, consisting of Michael "Air" Hofmann on drums and album producer Robert "Hubi" Hofmann on bass, furiously yells at you with an unique 3-Piece-Band interpretation of Gumo's deadly compositional cocktail of 80s Thrash Metal, Classic Speed Metal and NWOBHM that makes even an almost Priest & Scorpions-styled track like "Last Man Standing" sound like a juggernaut of heaviness.

Daniel "Gumo" Reiss, the raspy voice of independent German Thrash Metal, is back from his vault of meditation to inspire and tell stories that go from almost spiritual spheres on atmospheric tracks like "The Architect" or "For A Greater Cause" to reinterpretations of world famous tales like the 1982 movie "Conan The Barbarian", which the high speed track "Of Warlords And Vengeance" is based on.

At least once in a lifetime any true German Thrash Metal band needs to have a cover artwork by the one and only, the legendary Andreas Marschall, who is world famous for his work for bands like Sodom, Kreator, Grave Digger, Blind Guardian and many more.
The title track "Morbid Tales Of Terror", which is based on one of the most famous and powerful spiritual teachings of our time called "The Power Of Now" by Eckart Tolle, laid a great foundation for creating another classic Marschall Manifest.
