BELPHEGOR: “Conjuring The Dead” Due In AugustMonday, 17th March 2014
Austrian death/ black metal metallers BELPHEGOR will release their tenth album, Conjuring The Dead, on August August 11 in Europe via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2011’s Blood Magick Necromance was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with producer Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, MORBID ANGEL, CANNIBAL CORPSE).
Songtitles set to appear on BELPHEGOR’s new album include “Gasmask Terror”, “Rex Tremendae Majestatis”, “Take Her, Lucifer!” and “The Inverted Cross”. The cover artwork will be created by Greek artist Anthon Siro Seth, who previously worked on BELPHEGOR’s Pestapokalypse VI album in 2006.
Commented BELPHEGOR guitarist/vocalist Helmuth Lehner: “For over two years we worked on the nine compositions. We got every arrangement to the highest audio potential, added a lot of new, haunting, and compelling structures/ rhythm parts and tritone intervals.
“We decided to record in the USA this time. The combination of European metal’s cold and sick elements crossed with an American brutal sound was the master plan. We’re on fire! Expect more shredding, more magick, more of everything.”
