Samael have set "Above" as the title of their upcoming album due to be release in winter 2009.
This is what vocalist/guitarist Vorph says about the record: "After 20 years we've tried to do an album that would represent what Samael is all about and we did "Solar Soul". We feel now it is the right time to remember the people where we come from and that's exactly what "Above" will do. It is like an enhanced version of our three or four first albums, maybe the missing link between "Cermony Of Opposites" and "Passage". With the "Era One" project we've tried to work on different influences, with "Above" we stripped everything down. It is a metal album through and through."
