And even though the rest of the members decided to form a new band, Sur Austru, it seems like the Transilvanian Trilogy, started with Tău and Zi, will be finished. It will contain Negru's final drum recordings and contributions from his bandmates from the latest album.

Ordinul Negru - New Lineup And Album Cover Revealed

Romanian black metal band Ordinul Negru have been working on a follow-up to 2015's Sorcery Of Darkness, which was their first album as a band and not just a one-man project of Fulmineos. Now the band is getting ready to release Faustian Nights sometimes this year through Loud Rage Records. The tracklist and the release date are still secret, but we can gaze upon the cover art, made by Alexandru Das:

However, the band will not be in the same formula as the one that released the prior album, as there have been some lineup changes. Fulmineos and Putrid are still in the band, but S couldn't be part of the project due to the distance between their cities. Replacing him are Urmuz on guitars and vocals and Orthros on bass. The band did however reveal that S has recorded vocals for a song on the upcoming album and might be a live guest on future shows wherever possible.
