Guitarist/vocalist Helmuth Lehner of extreme metallers Belphegor has revealed that the group is working on material.

The new as yet untitled album, tentatively slated for a late 2012 release, will be the follow up to January 2011's Blood Magick Necromance. From this coming Saturday until next Wednesday, Belphegor will start the first rehearsal session for album X, in Abtenau, Austria. The drum duties will again be handled by Marthyn, who did an outstanding job on Blood Magick Necromance.

Helmuth commented: "Amazing to have the opportunity to be creative again and compose a new album. I begun the compositions in November 2011, after I had to spend five weeks in the hospital and 6 weeks in rehabilitation center, because of my health issues. I survived this hard trial, which still seems unreal. I am not fully recovered, but feel way better now, I can say. Unfortunately we had to cancel all tours until June 2012, when we will get back on the road, and will start with some European open air rituals."

Serpenth added: "At this time, we don't feel the pressure of a hard touring schedule and all the rigors surrounding that, so we can concentrate and create these arrangements in a completely focused way and can even put more energy, blood and guts inside. Working intensely on ten tracks. We are totally concentrated, you know ,the musick reigns above all. Magick. It's time for a new chapter."
