06:13 - Fearmeister Yea, I never even finished that album and I was a massive Agalloch fanboi
05:45 - Apothecary Marrow Of The Spirit is definitely underrated, not sure why people say Agalloch went downhill with that album. I definitely don't think they ended on a strong note with Serpent & The Sphere though
23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
Belphegor are currently at Mana Studios in Tampa, Florida with producer Erik Rutan (Goatwhore, Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse) completing recordings of the new yet-untitled album scheduled for a world-wide release in March next year via Nuclear Blast Records. Vocalist and guitarist Helmuth, is busy finishing all vocals, overdubs and lead guitar parts.
"Just returned from Leeds where we nuked the ingenious Damnation Festival. England is always a pleasure to shred. This time was no exception. What a brutal crowd it was!" stated vocalist/guitarist/head blasphemer Helmuth. "I already tracked the four rhythm guitars at Mana Studios in Florida. This album is gonna be brutal, way more death metal blasphemy than the last records. The nine sound collages will reveal a new dimension of chaos, with the uttermost aggressive soundwall possible. It's fantastic to work with Erik! This dude is really challenging us to give our best. You demons deserve it!"
Expect three trailers from the guitar and vocal sessions coming to you within the next months. The as of yet untitled album is tentatively scheduled for a worldwide release in March 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. You can however watch the band tracking the bass and drums below. This will be band's first album since Helmuth's near death experience, which caused the band to cancel several tours in 2011/2012.
