BELPHEGOR Reveals Cover Art For “Conjuring The Dead”Wednesday, 7th May 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 the new album “Gasmask Terror”, “Rex Tremendae Majestatis”, “Take Her, Lucifer!” and “The Inverted Cross”. The cover artwork was created by Greek artist Anthon Siro Seth, who previously worked on BELPHEGOR’s “Pestapokalypse VI” album in 2006.
Commented BELPHEGOR guitarist/vocalist Helmuth Lehner: “The spectacular cover, the offensive lyrical content, the Death Musick. BELPHEGOR’s nine new sound collages are a new dimension of intensity and dynamics.”
Added Seth: “Once you can customize the basic principles of Renaissance painting and deriving energy/data from chaotic reservoir of unconscious… you get BELPHEGOR’s Conjuring The Dead cover art.”
Blood Magick Necromance was released in January 2011 in Europe and February 2011 in the U.S. via Nuclear Blast Records.
