The French black/death metal masters from The Order Of Apollyon have inked a record deal with Agonia Records, with plans to record a new EP in 2016.
Formed in 2008 by BST (Aosoth, ex-Aborted) and then-drummer Daniel Wilding (Carcass), The Order Of Apollyon is an artistic and spiritual concept. With lyrics based on "the Divine nature of Death, and the prophecy carried on by Death's ultimate servant, man, and a music between death metal and black metal, with martial ambient influences" (as commented by the band), TOOA has developed this personal sound through two full length albums: "The Flesh" (2010) and "The Sword And The Dagger" (2015).
Accompanied by a line-up consisting of members of the elite of the French black metal scene (Hell Militia, Aosoth, Temple of Baal), and starting a new international collaboration with Agonia Records, the band is now focusing on a next release, to be recorded at the infamous Bst Studios. Stay tuned for more info. More...
The Order Of Apollyon premieres the lyric video of "Our Flowers are the Sword and the Dagger" taken from the new album "The Sword and the Dagger". Explains mastermind B.S.T. (Aosoth, ex-Balrog, ex-Aborted): "This track's lyrics are about martyrdom, and how sacrifices win wars. Aside from the obvious allusion to Christ, one can read into this references to the Muslim tradition, as well as various forms of indoctrinations from regimes that lead their devotees to Glorious Deaths".

In the five years since The Order Of Apollyon the blackened death metallers released their debut album "The Flesh", the band’s line-up has undergone a near-complete makeover.

Their new album "The Sword and the Dagger" will be released in North America on March 17 via Listenable Records.

Today, Listenable Records announces March 17th as the North American release date for The Order of Apollyon's "The Sword and the Dagger."
Formed in 2008 by BST and Daniel Wilding (now in Carcass), then respectively guitarist and drummer for Aborted, The Order of Apollyon's aim since the start has been to incarnate the Word and the Wrath of God. Debut album "The Flesh," released by Listenable in 2010, was based on the dichotomy opposing the material world, the world of the Flesh, and the world beyond matter, bathed in His light and His glory.
After a radical lineup change, and the induction of new blood coming from the depths of France's underground black metal scene, The Order of Apollyon started playing more shows, including France’s Hellfest, and prepared second opus, "The Sword And The Dagger," with a more radical approach to both music and lyrics, and including a wider range of influences, from raw orthodox black metal and death metal to martial industrial music. The track listing is as follows:
1. Own the Youth
2. Hatred Over Will
3. Our Flowers Are the Sword and the Dagger
4. Al 'ankabout
5. Hold Not Thy Peace, O God of My Praise
6. Chants of Purification
7. The Curse Is Poured Upon Them
8. By Your Command We Return to Dust
9. Eight Pillars
10. The Hand That Became Weak
11. Omnis Honor Et Gloria More...
