"Cernunnos the Seven Darks announces today that a green light has been confirmed for a 7" record release early next year with French underground giant Le Crépuscule du Soir productions.

Moribund Cult Records confirmed today that the next full length release from Haeresiarchs of Dis, originally set for November 27th, has been pushed to Jan - Feb of 2013. The packaging for this release will be presented as a hardcover CD book designed by studio Toadstool Enterprises. This special packaging requires a few more months to execute.
Of the presentation band mastermind Cernunnos commented: "Because this chapter of Haeresiarchs of Dis is translated from a linear piece of ancient text, I wanted a design to reflect this. It will be presented as an old book fragment with annotations and sparse artwork. This I feel better represents the work as a whole."
Cernunnos also commented that there has been a "revolving door" around artwork and design changes, and a finalized version, including cover, may not be available until release.
Haeresiarchs of Dis, which will be releasing new album "Thirty-Eighth Sermon of the Unborn" on November 27th through Moribund Cult, has now issued the following announcement about an upcoming split CD:
"Very shortly UW Records (my micro-record label) will release the long awaited split CD between Haeresiarchs of Dis and Ophidian Forest! Should be available generally everywhere by end of this month. Been looking forward to this project for a very long time!
"This record most probably represents the last physical CD release under the UW Records imprint (because let's face it, times have changed); but we're very proud of what we've accomplished thus far, now with six CDs and a DVD release under our belt, and prouder still to be sticking to our guns to the very end, releasing a purely underground split digipack CD that is 100% raw cult true black metal all the way and not intended for mass crowd consumption in any manner.
"There is no better way to go out than on our own terms, fully compromised, and looking forward to what new technologies await. As a wise person once told me, the record industry is coming to an end; but the music industry has only just started."
Ophidian Forest was covered in the Croatian edition of our "Unearthing the Metal Underground" column, and also took part in our editorial on Christian "unblack" metal versus non-Christian black metal.
Hæresiarchs of Dis confirmed today that the new full-length album "Thirty-Eighth Sermon of the Unborn" is slated for November 27th, 2012 release through Moribund Cult and the album will be presented as a hardcover digibook.
The release consists of twelve tracks, each a section of a fragment of linear text from antiquity. It reveals the trek of an unidentified man seeking some exploit to re-birth the Adversary at the end of human existence.
The band has stated the concept and music are intertwined, being "at once philosophical, adventurous, speculative, and disturbing." The cover artwork can be viewed below. More...
Cernnunos announced today that the Hæresiarchs of Dis part of the "Darkest Origins" split CD with Ophidian Forest is complete. Cernunnos recently approved the final remix and mastering by Toadstool Enterprises. The cover artwork can be viewed here.
Cernunnos' contribution to the collection is a remixing of the 2010 "Dis" demo material released by Toadstool Enterprises in 2010.
"The Toadstool release was extremely raw (though much improved over the original cassette tape from which it came), and while it remains the favorite of all my releases, I felt some adjustments would be beneficial," Cernunnos stated. "In addition to the demo, I pulled some more material from the old tapes, one which was a piano practice session from very long ago."
In total, three additional tracks from the demo era have been mixed, improved upon, and added to the release. As a bonus, Cernunnos has re-recorded a track from the debut "Overture" release.
"I do not play live, so do not have any live performances to share. Re-recording the track was both an experiment and a way to keep alive--in my mind--the older material. The track was originally written around 2002."
The "Darkest Origins" CD will be released later in 2012 by UW records. The track listing is: More...
Cernunnos of Haeresiarchs of Dis has issued the following update about releasing a split with Ophidian Forest:
"The remixing of the Dis demo has been completed for the 'Darkest Origins' release on UW Records this year. The original demo material has been remixed with three previously unreleased bonus tracks from that period. A re-recorded version of 2008's 'Overture' release 'Circle' has also been confirmed. A video release for 'Circle' will follow around time of the CD release."
The track listing for the "Dis" material is as follows:
1) Black Prophecies
2) Chaos Plague
5) Tangible Hatred
6) Heritage of the Night
7) The Devil's Whoremonger
8) Blood and Souls
Occult Black Metal Zine has posted a new interview online with Cernunnos from Haeresiarchs of Dis, in which he discusses the band's upcoming material. An excerpt from the interview follows.
OBM: Can you give us an update on what is going on with the project these days?
The next full release is tentatively entitled “Sermon 31: Clavicle: 1-6 the Third Trine of Satyr’s Cross.” This album is more conceptual than the previous releases, written in a linear narrative that tells the tale of a place called Satyr’s Cross where realities intersect and are erased. While this album has been demoed out for quite some time (a preview is posted on mySpace), I have held off on finishing while I addressed some recording and production considerations. The last two releases “Denuntiatus Cinis” and “In Obsecration of the Seven Darks” were both recorded at the same time and in the same manner. I wanted to step back and take more time thinking about composing and recording. To keep my forward momentum I decided to change up my recording methods and practices, thus offering something slightly different. I do not want to make the same album. So while the new album is completed, it is done with scratch tracks, and the re-recording these tracks I expect to occur throughout winter and spring. There is also a split coming out with Ophidian Forest on UW Records later this year. This split will be material from the now out of print Dis demo released on Toadstool Enterprises in 2010, though re-mixed. I try to post updates to the MySpace site regularly, and there are some feeds from that blog posted on Metalunderground and other sites.
OBM: How would you describe the musical sound of the new album and how it differs from previous releases?
With the new upcoming release, “Sermon 31: Clavicle: 1-6 the Third Trine of Satyr’s Cross”, I would say the sound offers something new while maintaining the Haeresiarchs of Dis format and style. While I freely experiment with Haeresiarchs of Dis, it will always have the same backbone, same flavor: underground metal wet in the occult, religion, and the sick areas of the human condition. Lyrically, the narrative that I use on “Sermon 31” will stand out as different being a continuous piece of prose, though will still maintain the darker themes and ideas I put forth on previous releases. Aside from some different equipment and software, expect the new material to contain all the hallmarks of Haeresiarchs of Dis: fast riffs, slower drones, choirs, ambient, and some acoustics. This album is also written without large breaks between tracks as it is intended as a single conceptual piece.

Front man Cernunnos from Haeresiarchs of Dis stated today that he is re-recording a track off of the 2008 "Overture" release. A statement from the band reads as follows:
"A promo video was created for the track 'Circle' prior to the 2008 CD and never released (A later YouTube video of same song has surfaced recently). When this footage recently surfaced on an old external hard drive, Cernunnos desired to release it. After re-mixing the original Overture recordings, he felt re-recording the track might better suit his current endeavors.
"He is in the process of recording Circle for release w/ the original video for the web, though rumor suggests it will be a 2012 compilation on UW Records (BATONROUGE, Louisiana), same label who released 'Excommunicated' earlier this year."
Cernunnos also stated that this re-recording would not delay the next new full-length release. You can find the band's last recording update at this location.
Cernunnos of U.S. black metal act Haeresiarchs of Dis announced last week that he will be re-recording the scratch demo tracks created for the upcoming "Sermon 31" release this winter.
Of the re-recording Cenunnos states: "The preview provided on mySpace is a demo version. I had always planned to re-record the instrumentation and re-structure song components from the onset, and have recently come upon a means I feel better translates my endeavor."
Cernunnos also added that "dubbing-over" the demo tracks with a more accurate sound was always part of the initial process that started in Spring 2011. "I've come upon equipment and production means that better suit my intent," he stated.
When asked about the delay, Cernunnos said, "I act instinctively with this music. When something feels right, I record it. When I do not feel the inspiration, I wait. In the summer I estimated the end of 2011 for completion and release with Moribund, but have not felt inspired by my current production set up, thus the delay. I have been using the same set up for several years now, and wanted something more for my instrumentation." He also pointed out that "I get bored doing the same sound and process repeatedly."
When asked for a revised release date, Cernunnos could not supply accuracy, but eluded to Spring 2012.
The upcoming Hæresiarchs of Dis full-length studio release will be titled "Sermon 31: Clavicle 1-6 The Third Trine of Satyr's Cross" and consists of 6 main tracks interspersed with sections of variable noise and interludes. The track listing is as follows:
Clavicle 2:0 (06:57:16)
section 2:1 (12:51:09)
Clavicle 3:0 (16:21:09)
section 3:1 (18:17:47), section 3:2 (07:25:16)
Clavicle 4:0 (24:06:68) section 4:1 (25:16:70), section 4:2 (27:36:00)
Clavicle 5:0 (30:20:33)
section 5:1 (33:22:17), section 5:2 (41:30:14)
Clavicle 6:0 (42:23:72) section 6:1 (46:22:54), section 6:2 (48:15:57)

He expects a late 2011 release date.
"Also mentioned was work on new unrelated material for the fourth official Moribund Cult release. On this Cernunnos stated only that future releases may be very different, and has suggested an eight string guitar and more piano work leading the way."

Main man Cernunnos of Hæresiarchs of Dis has announced the band's next full-length album, to be released through Moribund Cult Records, will be entitled "Sermon 31: Clavicles 1-6 the Third Trine of Satyr's Cross."
A press release detailing the album reads as follows:
"Track listing is currently set as a series of six verses. Cernnunos stated that the album is a conceptual piece and more ambitious in concept. Consisting of a series of interlinking tracks using a transcribed piece of linear text, the work will tell (or 'foretell') of a possible future event triggered by the folly of humanity described as a place called Satyr's Cross. Part speculative fiction, philosophy, religious dogma, and enlightenment of the soul through desecration of the human spirit, Cernnunos suggests late 2011 for release."

"After blazing trails with his Denuntiatis Cinis debut for Moribund and reaping unanimously fanatic praise from the international press, one-man maelstrom of miasmic misery Haeresiarchs of Dis returns with his hotly anticipated In Obsecration of the Seven Darks.
"Taking the previous Moribund album to more epic and extreme ends, main man Cernunnos summons forth a frightening and bold vision of black metal: the complexity more entangling, the experimental touches even further out there, the violence absolutely mesmerizing. Haeresiarchs of Dis now enters the uppermost echelon of black metal."
