Lerner comments regarding the upcoming album:
“It is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far. The drums are precise and very technical with loads of breaks, fills and tempo changes. The bass is like a panzer tank. Also, the rhythm guitars are completed; utterly aggressive and obscure. You don’t hear guitars like that anywhere with such a massively low tuning.
“I’m really proud of all we have tracked so far and created for the new audial hellspawn. An honor — this horror!!”
Belphegor is also pleased to announce a return to U.K. and Irish shores. Support bands on this run will include Destroyer666, Enthroned, Nervochaos, and Nordjevel. The dates are a part of a wider European hellride which will kick off September 28th in Copenhagen, Denmark.
