Azaghal To Record New Album

Finnish Black metallers Azaghal will enter the studio to record their 6th album, their follow up to "Codex Antitheus".

Nargath comments: "The studio is booked, we will start recording in 2 weeks. We are using the same studio as last time, but we are going for a bit dirtier and rawer sounds/production this time. The working title for the album is "Luciferin Valo" ("The Light of Lucifer") but that might still change.

The album will feature 9-11 tracks, depending on how they turn out and which combination makes the best whole.

Song titles include "Verta ja Tuhkaa" ("Blood and Ashes"), "Teen Paholaisen Työtä" ("I do the Devils work"), "Kuolonkäärme" ("The Death Serpent"), "Tuhoaja" ("Destroyer") and "Ilmestyskirjan Ratsastajat" ("Riders of the Apocalypse") amongst others.

The material is more midtempo based than on the last album and hmm dare I say, catchier, than on Codex."

In other news, Nargath's project Wyrd inked a deal with Avantgarde Music.
