Austrian blackened death metal outfit BELPHEGOR has commenced the rehearsal sessions in Abtenau, Austria for its upcoming album recordings.
Commented guitarist/vocalist Helmuth Lehner: “All good so far. We just finished the second rehearsing session. Currently we’re working on nine sound-collages, added a lot new arrangements, elements and structures. Serpenth, Marthyn and me shredded our asses off in these eleven days. There will be three more ’till we enter the studio by end of May 2012 and start to tracking drums. The titles on the setlist are working titles. Hell awaits!”
Several photos from the rehearsal sessions can be found at this location.
BELPHEGOR‘s as-yet-untitled new CD will be released in late 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band’s last album, “Blood Magick Necromance”, was released in January 2011 in Europe and February 2011 in the U.S. via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was produced by Peter Tägtgren (IMMORTAL, CELTIC FROST, HYPOCRISY, DIMMU BORGIR) at his Abyss Studios in Pärlby, Sweden and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren.
