Kult Ov Azazel Delays New Album Release Date

Florida based black metal band Kult Ov Azazel has issued the following statement:

"The release date for Destroying The Sacred has been delayed until June. We were informed from Arctic Music that the North American distributor has refused to distribute the album due to the cover art. This is the not the first time we have encountered problems likes this with our releases be it the graphic or lyrical content. We have already remedied the situation with a slip insert that will go over the cover art and the only real setback is that the original release date has been pushed back.

The good news however is we have streamed another new track on the Kult ov Azazel MySpace page. The song is Storm The Gates and is track 4 on the forthcoming album. We have also confirmed participation on a Venom tribute split with Teratism. This split vinyl release will be titled In League With Satan and released through Negativity Records with a limited run of 666 copies. We are also working on putting together a CD/DVD release to be released later in the year through Arctic Music."

"In one month we will enter Mana Studio in Tampa, FL to start recording the next album, The World, The Flesh & The Devil. Due to personal obligations Nocturath (guitar) has decided to leave the band but will continue to work closely with us in the future doing covers/layouts as he has done in the past. His replacement is VJS from the hordes Demoncy & Incursus, whose first official appearances will be on the split releases with Vrolok and Horn of Valere. As for the splits, the recording for both is complete. The only hold up right now is the art/layout for the 10" split with Horn of Valere and the enhanced video content for the split CD with Vrolok. The video portion will be completed within the next few days at which time everything will be turned over to Arctic Music for immediate release.

Kult Ov Azazel Update

Florida- based black metallers Kult Ov Azazel have issued the following update:

We stormed the US West Coast with vengeful fury full of sacrilegious hate which was in the end very gratifying. We'd like to thank all those that manifested at the California, Oregon and Washington rituals and worshipped with us, we salute you all for the support! We also would like to hail all the bands with us for helping out and their dedication to the tour. However, due to circumstances and reasons that will be left unknown, Kult ov Azazel will now go back to representing and doing things ourselves. From this moment on no one speaks or makes decisions regarding our horde except for us, this meaning that any ties to previous management have been severed.

We'd also like to apologize to all the Canadian maniacs that had to miss the tour due to complications at the Canadian border. All bands were denied entrance and very disappointed about this. Next time around Kult ov Azazel will go about this differently and we will storm Canada with extreme hate and blasphemy!!

Some photos from the tour have been posted in the live section at the official website.

Lauderdale with unholy vengeance and blasphemous hatred!! We'll be covering a good portion of material from '99 up to the last album, Oculus Infernum, which the legions of South Florida have yet had a proper introduction to. The ritual will begin before Deicide and will most likely be the last local performance for another long period of time. Come and worship!!!"
