Norwegian-Ukrainian pop black metal band SEMARGL has set “Satanic Pop Metal” as the title of its fifth album, due in early 2012 via Twilight-Vertrieb. The CD will contain 13 tracks, including the song “Tak, Kurwa”, the video for which can be viewed below.
According to a press release “Satanic Pop Metal” represents “an evolution of SEMARGL music, a new genre, a mix of different ideas and experiments.”
SEMARGL‘s fourth album, “Ordo Bellictum Satanas”, came out last year via the German label Twilight Vertrieb. Additional guest musicians on the album are Iscariah (IMMORTAL, DEAD TO THIS WORLD, NECROPHAGIA), Novy (DIES IRAE, BEHEMOTH, VADER) and Vrangsinn (CARPATHIAN FOREST, NATTEFROST, A.W.O.T.).
SEMARGL‘s current lineup is as follows:
Rutarp – Vocals
Shaddar – Guitars
Hannibal – Bass, Vocals
Tom V. “Fordervelse” Nilsen (ARVAS, KOLDBRANN, FROSTWORK, SLAVIA, RAVEN TONGUE) – Drums
SEMARGL describes its sound as follows: “Aggression of satanic black metal, technical elements of old-school thrash and dynamism of rock’n’roll’ combined with a totally unexpected lyrical piano parts and clean female vocals and industrial electronic samples. The lyrics touch on issues concerning Satanism, anti-Christianity, philosophy, war.”
