Black metal heroes prepare for return

Belphegor began their first rehearsal sessions for their new album last Tuesday in Abtenau, Salzburg (Austria).

Front man Helmuth Lehner commented: “Magnificent nature covered in snow that has arrived in the mountains with -11 degrees [12 ºF] here and we’re freezing our asses off. Just perfect for creating brutal sound collages. With this currently untitled album we will try to develop and bring everything to a new level, since I have the feeling this is the strongest recording line-up we’ve ever had. Regards to blood brother Barth Resch for the photo shoot.”

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, scheduled for a late 2016, early 2017 release.

Belphegor‘s new project will commence two-and-a-half years after the highly-acclaimed ‘Conjuring The Dead’ album, which was released via Nuclear Blast records in August 2014.
