A German-language studio report on the making of “Gates To The Pantheon”, the fourth album by German black/death quintet NEGATOR, can be seen below. (Make sure to click on the “CC” button for English subtitles.) The behind-the-scenes clip features commentary from producer Eike Freese (GAMMA RAY, CALLEJON, DARK AGE) along with interview and studio footage from each of the members of NEGATOR.
“Gates To The Pantheon” will be released this spring in North America via Prosthetic Records. The CD will be made available physically on May 14 and digitally on April 23 to coincide with its European release through Viva Hate Records. The band — whose blistering “panzer metal” has solidified their reputation as one of Germany’s top extreme metal acts — is currently offering a free download of the single “Atonement In Blood” using the SoundCloud widget below.
“Gates To The Pantheon”, NEGATOR‘s first new music in over three years, is the follow-up to their highly acclaimed third album “Panzer Metal”. That release caught the attention of Swedish legends DARK FUNERAL, who subsequently enlisted NEGATOR vocalist Nachtgarm to front their band throughout 2011 and 2012. The new album — recorded at Hammer Studios in Hamburg with producer Eike Freese (GAMMA RAY, CALLEJON, DARK AGE) — features nine bloodthirsty tracks of pounding blackened death, hailed by JOB FOR A COWBOY guitarist Alan Glassman as “one of the angriest-sounding releases I’ve ever heard — a black metal masterpiece.”
