Check out "Emerge" here:
As was previously announced, power/thrash metallers Bejelit have signed a deal with Bakerteam Records for the release of their fourth full-length album "Emerge." The band has now issued the following press release about the upcoming album:
"Bejelit debuted in 2004 with the critically acclaimed album 'Hellgate' and since then they've built a solid reputation by releasing two more top-notch efforts and hundreds of shows all over Europe, most notably their 2008 and 2011 appearances at Slovenia's Metal Camp festival. 'Emerge' displays 13 heterogeneous and energetic power metal songs enriched by deep lyrical themes and epic scenarios.
"The music is aggressive but non-destructive, willing to drive the listener to emerge from any adverse situation. Instruments such as accordions, classical guitars and violins have been added to the mix (with a special mention for the guest appearance by Laura Brancorsini of Furor Gallico), giving it an unusual flavor which will no doubt attract even the most demanding audience.
"'Emerge' was mixed by Nino Laurenne (Sonata Arctica, Amorphis, Wintersun, Elvenking) at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland, and mastered by Svante Forsbäck at Chartmakers Studios (Rammstein, Korpiklaani, Amorphis). The beautiful artwork was handled by Seth Siro Anton (Kamelot, Exodus, Paradise Lost). More...
