Norwegian Black Metal veterans Crest Of Darkness have revealed a track from their upcoming ninth full-length album "The God Of Flesh", which is set for release on My Kingdom Music on the 6th December.
Crest Of Darkness founder Ingar Amlien has this to say about the track, which is titled "The Child With No Head":
"Here we are, yet another chapter written in the book of Crest Of Darkness, with a track that is probably one of the most violent and extreme we have ever written during our career. Turn up the f***ing volume and you'll be overwhelmed by its sense of loss and total lack of hope."

Although still filled with Crest Of Darkness' trademark Satanic themes "The God Of Flesh" marks a change to the feel, variety and depth of the music, showing the band's line-up of Amlien (Bass / Vocals), Rebo (Rhythm / Lead Guitars), and Berhard (Drums), to be as much at home with more progressive and melodic elements, as they are the with the aggressive and dark brutal side, for which they are known.
Amlien recently remarked that "The God Of Flesh", which will be the band's ninth full-length album, was "probably the darkest and most brutal album we've ever made! It's also the most honest work ever from my perspective"
With all lyrics by Amlien and music by Amlien, Rebo and Bernhard, except for the track "Forgotten" where Amlien joins forces with the album's session keyboardist Kristian Wentzel,
Seeking an outlet for his passion for sonic brutality and his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, on which he is an acknowledged expert, Amlien formed Crest Of Darkness in the mid nineties and considers today's line-up to be the strongest in the band's history, as he explains:
"During the whole production of the album I was thinking that now, more than ever before, I wanted to make an album my way! And, as a result, we haven't made any compromises whatsoever, in any direction. And I'm very fortunate to be able to say that I was not alone during the whole process. With the help of my fantastic band mates Rebo and Bernhard, it became possible to bring my darkest fantasies and visions to life through "The God of Flesh"
"The God of Flesh" will be available in Digital, Digipak CD, Deluxe CD Box, and Vinyl formats, and is now available to pre-order at http://smarturl.it/CODFLESH
Crest Of Darkness will be live at Good Omens in Trondheim, Norway, on the 12th October
