French black metallers Temple Of Baal will release their fourth full-length album Verses Of Fire on October 22nd in Europe and November 12th in North America via Agonia Records. The follow-up to Lightslaying Rituals will focus "on a more organic side thanks to the use of tube amps and natural drums, the production allows the natural old-school feeling of the band". You can already listen to some new tunes on the video teaser below.
It has been a while since we heard from French black metallers Temple Of Baal. Well, the group is currently putting the finishing touches to their fourth album. The recording sessions are taking place at Hybreed Studios with Andrew Guillotin (Glorior Belli). The new album will consist of ten tracks with a running time of about one hour, and shall be released by Agonia Records in the fall of 2013. The band describes the effort as "a blend between Lightslaying Rituals aggression, and the last split CD The Vision Of Fading Mankind's epic atmospheres."
French black metal outfit Temple Of Baal has uploaded a rare track, " Undead Soul", taken from the band's Satanas Lux Solis rehearsal tape, originally self-released in 1999, in only 200 handnumbered copies. The song can be streamed at the band's Soundcloud and it was the very first track composed for the band.
As reported back in April, French black metallers Temple Of Baal were looking for a new drummer after parting ways with Antares. Now, that search has ended, as the band has a new drummer, named Skvm . In a short statement, the band said:
"Temple Of Baal is proud to welcome drummer Skvm (Nightshade, Choking On Bile, oOo) within their ranks. The band is now working on the successor of Lightslaying Rituals and is looking for gigs around Europe. Next live ritual will take place on 11/09/2010 in Liège, Belgium."
