Austrian diabolical death / black metal commandos Belphegor are back in the studio to record their 11th still untitled album.
The LP will act as the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2014 recording ‘Conjuring The Dead’. Expect a release date of September through Nuclear Blast Entertainment, followed by an intense touring cycle worldwide.
Frontman / founder guitarist Helmuth Lehner has given an update on Belphegor´s current run in the studio:
"The drums and bass guitar have been executed masterfully by Serpenth (Bass, screams) and German maniac drummer Bloodhammer. A new chapter, a new challenge."
“We've once again created an LP with two different tunings in the manner in which we did ‘Pestapokalypse VI’ (Oct. 2006). We’ve added a lot of new elements and structures to our trademark sound and tuned the guitars down to achieve even more brutal and obscure effects. These are the most furiously heavy, fierce and superior nine sound collages we have ever written and recorded."
Keep an eye out for news on further details such as the album’s title, producer, as well as lyrical and artistic concepts – all coming soon…
Check out this exclusive clip of Belphegor playing 'Totenkult - Exegesis Of Deterioration' recorded live inside their rehearsal bunker. This scorching death/black metal track will be included on the upcoming album. Crank it to the max and go to hell with them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMT9xxBpFK4

Swedish melodic metal forerunners Amaranthe have officially entered the studio to work on the follow-up to 2014’s breakthrough album "Massive Addictive", which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart upon release and which enjoyed unprecedented U.S. radio airplay in support of the singles “Drop Dead Cynical” and “Digital World.”
The new album is due out on Spinefarm in October.
Amaranthe will spend their summer laying waste to stages at all of the relevant European rock festivals before embarking on a near-constant global touring schedule after the album’s release.
"As some of you no doubt have heard by now, we have entered Top Floor studios with Jakob Herrman in Gothenburg to record our fourth album,” said guitarist Olof Morck. “It is extremely exciting to be back in the creative zone after spending two years traveling the whole world in support of "Massive Addictive". We will spend one month here recording drums, bass and guitars before once again moving onto Jacob Hansen's studio in Denmark for vocal recordings and mixing.”
He continued, “We are beyond thrilled about the new material, which is certainly Amaranthe's most diverse so far; our trademark bleeding edge modern metal is ever present, but fused with an even wider range of genres than before, featuring everything from stadium rock, the latest in pop music innovation and danceable super-hits. Expect these tunes to enter your mind permanently, never to leave, later this year!"
In other Amaranthe news, they’ve racked up some new certifications. The band’s single “Nexus” went gold and “Amaranthine” & “Hunger” have gone platinum - all in their home country Sweden.
More details about Amaranthe's latest bleeding edge modern metal masterwork will be revealed soon.
