Belphegor Posts New Music Video Online

Diabolical death metal squadron Belphegor have released an atmospheric video for their brand new single, "Virtus Asinaria - Prayer," which is the second single from their upcoming twelfth full-length "The Devils," due out on June 24th. "Virtus Asinaria - Prayer" is a change of pace with its more sustained yet inherently sinister approach, slowly luring you in with entrancing melodies and ceremonial chants, indicating impending doom. The video for the song was partially shot at the scenic and infamous Neudegg Alm in Abtenau, Austria, and it can be watched below.

Helmuth states:
"Our new video for the track 'Virtus Asinaria - Prayer' pairs Belphegor´s bizarre live procession with an intimate ritual of sulphur, passion and blood. For he shall rise, heretic goat of flesh and lust! It stands for what Belphegor has always stood: liberty and the everlasting spiritual and bodily manifestation of carnal sin upon this rotten world!” In Musick, Helmuth" More...

Belphegor To Re-Release "Necrodaemon Terrorsathan"

Belphegor will re-release their third studio album "Necrodaemon Terrorsathan" on November 6th via Nuclear Blast. Originally released in the year 2000, the record will be resurrected as a remastered version available as both CD and LP (also in various limited edition colours) - twenty years after it's first appearance.

Vocalist Helmuth states: "We originally composed this album around 1998-1999, recording and releasing in the year 2000. Our former guitarist Sigurd (1993-2006) who marched with me around the globe wrote three songs on this monster. Session drums were handled by Manfred “Man” Gandler (Mastic Scum) and bass by Mario Klausner (Pungent Stench, Collapse 7)"

The band have re-recorded the song "Necrodaemon Terrorsathan". This digital only single will be released on September 18th - more information to be revealed soon.

Helmuth adds: "20 years later and we´re still here, stronger than ever. I originally composed this song around 1998-1999, tracking and releasing it in 2000. This was a thrilling experiment for me, to have the horde to listen to how 'Necrodaemon Terrorsathan' would sound if we had created the track with our skills and recording capabilities in the present era."

Belphegor To Tour Europe With Suffocation

Legendary bands and Nuclear Blast label mates, Belphegor and Suffocation, are teaming up once again for the second edition of Europe Under Black Death Metal Fire, brought by The Flaming Arts Agency. This time the package is strengthened by the well-known Polish blasphemers Hate. Extremely wide European geography, from the very south to the very north, over one month of touring and 30+ shows, this run simply cannot be missed by the extreme metal lovers.

Having formed over 30 years ago, Suffocation are among the world’s death metal pioneers. On this tour, they’re going to perform songs from their latest album, ...Of the Dark Light, that was mixed and mastered by world-renowned producer/engineer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (Hatebreed, Suicide Silence), as well as hits from the former albums. This is also a great opportunity to check them live with the new vocalist, Ricky Myers.

Since 1993, Belphegor have been delivering their select diabolical death musick, and one album after another has nailed down the tightest black/death performances. The band's lyrics tirelessly explore the darkest, most dismal parts of demonology, witchcraft, and the grand devil, himself. EUBDMF is the perfect timing to catch the band performing tracks from their latest piece, Totenritual, before they hit the studio to record the new album that is set to be released in 2020.

The legendary Polish blackened death gods Hate released their new work, Auric Gates Of Veles, through Metal Blade Records on June 14, 2019, and are offering the European tribes to taste the album live within a massive lineup. The 11th studio album of Hate is more blackened than ever and the tunes from it will definitely make sure the crowds are in an atmosphere as hot as hell. More...

Monument Of Misanthropy Looking For New Members

European brutal death metal stronghold Monument Of Misanthropy announce they are looking for new guitarists and a new bass player. European musicians with their own material are being preferred, but it is NOT mandatory. Get in touch with the band via this email: monumentofmisanthropy@yahoo.de or their official bandpage on FB: Monument Of Misanthropy Official Band Site

Explains the inventor of the Monument Of Misanthropy brand-imprint, band founder and frontman George "Misanthrope" Wilfinger:

"Neither will I be using any empty bullshit phrases like "due to artistic differences", "because of unsurmountable personal differences", nor will I be washing Monument Of Misanthropy's dirty laundry in public. Fact is that after the last very successful years, three awesome European tours and two acclaimed releases, for me it feels like I should carry on with a new team of guitarists and bass player. Artists who still have the fire inside to go beyond their limits and with an iron will to produce a brutal new death metal album for Monument Of Misanthropy with me and one of the best drummers out there in the brutal death metal world. People willing to play festivals, to go on tours, even if the fee won't buy them a Porsche. Musicians who live for the cause. Just sincere, motivated musicians willing to go the extra mile, that's all I'm asking for. Musicians from Europe and with their own material are preferred, but it's NO must."

Monument Of Misanthropy have been recording and touring with drum-gods Romain Goulon (ex-Necrophagist, ex-Benighted), Simon Schilling (ex-Belphegor) and David Diepold (ex-Benighted, Cognizance).

To give you an impression what is awaiting you being one of their new members, the band include their recent touring history below: More...
