Samael - New Album Title And Cover Art Revealed

Original news, posted on 21.12.2010

As promised, Samael have revealed the title of their upcoming new full-length. Samael have chosen Lux Mundi (which translate in English as "Light of the World") as title for their upcoming album due to be released in spring 2011.

The album, which took almost three years to be completed, was recorded this summer after the band spend a few days in Germany on pre-production with Waldemar Sorychta. The recording took place on two different locations in Switzerland and the mix has been done by extreme metal specialist Russ Russell in Kettering (England)

Lux Mundi will consist of 10 to 12 new songs including first single "Antigod" and live monster "Soul Invictus".

Swiss metallers Samael have just revealed the cover artwork of their forthcoming album, entitled Lux Mundi.

Vorphalack (vocals, guitar) commented: "For the cover artwork of Lux Mundi I envisioned a series of rays starting or ending at the centre of the cover. I wasn't even thinking about any kind of motives, just black on black using a matte and shining black to make the rays apparent. I spoke about that with Patrick (Pidoux) who did the artwork of Solar Soul and Above and he came out with that idea upon which we immediately all agree."

Patrick Pidoux commented: "I draw a very graphic version of an eye which represents sight, the first human sense able to capture light."

Lux Mundi will contains 12 original new tracks including "Antigod", "Soul Invinctus", "Pagan Trance", "The Truth Is Marching On", "Of War", "The Shadow Of The Sword"... The album will be released in April 2011.

Their album/song titles are getting a bit "monothematic"...

I respectfully disagree. I find it pretty unique and radical, considering its symmetry, shapes, and color scheme. Those three add up to a very worthy picture while not venturing much into complexity (not that there's anything wrong with complexity, of course).

If I could get a 4x4 of that album cover I'd hang it on my wall.
