Barathrum Releasing New Album

Saturnal Records has set April 28th as the international release date for Barathrum's ninth album, "Fanatiko." Formed in 1990, Barathrum is one of the founding Finnish black metal outfits.

The band's early '90s demos, and especially following first two albums - "Hailstorm" and "Eerie," both released in 1995 - were foundations in establishing the filthy sound for which Finnish black metal became known worldwide, and also for featuring a unique and sinister setup of two bass guitars.

Barathrum would continue to be prolific during the rest of the 1990s and into the early 2000s, before quietly going on hiatus. And although posthumous collections kept the name fresh for a while, only three new songs would arrive on a split 10" in 2010, and thus flowed rumors about the state of Barathrum and whether the band was truly RIP.

This new album shall be released on both CD and vinyl LP formats, along with new merchandise sure to please all old worshipers of Barathrum. The "Fanatiko" track listing is as follows:

1. Hellspawn
2. Pope Corpse Tattoo
3. On The Dark River Bank
4. Sadistic Pleasure
5. Arx Satanas
6. Church Amok
7. Spirit of the Damned
8. Fanatiko More...
