Well, it seems that we can expect an early treat for 2014, this time from the Greek prog black metallers Hail Spirit Noir whose debut album Pneuma was released in 2012. Titled OI MAGOI and featuring 7 tracks, the release date for this "black, filthy and psychedelic" trip is set for January 20th, 2014, through Code666 Records. The band has also revealed the artwork and you can see it below.

Here's the official statement, taken from their Facebook page: "It's time people. The sophomore album is almost upon you. Promising a trip into the obscure and all things black, filthy and psychedelic, it bears the title OI MAGOI (transl. "the magicians") and features seven new chapters for you lasting approximately 49 mins. Release date is set for January 20, 2014 from Code666 Recs. Prepare yourselves, the Spirit Noir is at it again."

Yis! Hail "Hail Spirit Noir".

Cool! I don't say no to more wacky prog.

Yessss, finally some news on this

Should be musically fun...

Not impressed cover art though - Venom from Spider-Man on the chest wtf?! 'Pneuma' contains a lot better work.

Edited: Fuck! Venom is also on debut

And with that, life is worth living again.

Wooohoooo! I was in such a state of suspense ever since they announced it earlier and never followed up on the news, but I guess good things come in time. Time for the masters to show us how it's done

Finally...how long did i expect these news!!!
C'mon Hail Spirit Noir blow our minds,once again...
The most difficult for a band who has an amazing debut,is to make a better lp than the first...
Any bets by anyone?

I'm betting (nothing) that this album will be their best, and anything that comes after will be a disappointment.

Why you say that?

Just a hunch. Their debut is weird and pushes the envelope a bit, but it also seems a little... inconsistent. This time around I think they'll have a new-found confidence based on how well they did with Pneuma and they will have matured in the songwriting department. I'm guessing any issues the band had with the debut will be amended here, which will be the height of their career. It's hard to follow up an album like that, so - again, I'm only guessing here - I don't think they'll ever manage to create something better in the future.

I couldn't get into the debut, but we'll see about this one.

You're quite correct about all these.Nice approach of thoughts.The band is not new in the scene,they were ''TRANCENDING BIZZARRE'' once (i think),so about the songwriting i think it's more to the how much inspiration they would have.It is always the inspiration for me that gives good songs...
We'll see how this will work...
Rojin - 29.11.2013 at 15:38  
Cover art is OK. Looking forward to it.

Because they once were in Transcending Bizarre my guess is that they won't be releasing that very much stuff after this one, at least stuff sounding like what they are now. I think of them of that kind that will release 2 or 3 albums and move on, to a complete different project. This could possibly be their last. These guys are awesome and they know it, that's why they didn't even provide a sample on their page to catch feedback. If they recorded something and received sort of a negative feedback they wouldn't try and disappoint again, that's what I think.

That's the same face that was on the stomach of the demon on the cover of Pneuma

Nicely. Have you noticed that my post edit contains exactly the same thoughts
