Recorded in January / February 1991 at Morrisound Studios, Tampa, Florida.

The artwork is taken from the 1894 painting The Treasures of Satan by Belgian symbolist painter, writer, and occultist Jean Delville and was also used in Hexenhaus's first album A Tribute to Insanity (1988).

A music video was made for the song 'Blessed Are the Sick'.

Blessed Are the Sick Reviews

Reviewer :    (75/100)
Date : 
발표하는 앨범마다 우열을 가리기 힘든 명반이라는 칭송이 따르는 Morbid Angel이다. 짜임새있고 정돈된 구성아래 멤버들의 살벌한 하이테크닉이 빛나는 두 번째 앨범 Blessed Are The Sick으로, 두 기타리스트의 스윕, 얼터네이트피킹 속주와 드러머 Pete Sandoval의 투베이스 드러밍이 돋보인다. 리더이자 기타와 키보드를 연주하는 Trey Azagthoth의 치밀한 송라이팅 아래 단순히 몰아부치는 것이 아닌 키보드와 어쿠스틱기타의 사용으로 어느정도 굴곡이 있고 공간감있는 사운드를 구사한다. Morbid Angel은 본작 Blessed Are The Sick 이후, 기타리스트 Richard Brunelle가 탈퇴하고 3인조 체제로 Covenant를 공개한다.
