Alkerdeel will be releasing the new album "Morinde" on February 24th, 2012 and the album is now available for pre-order here. You can also check out a recently posted music video from the album at this location.
The band commented on the release:
"No better way to start off the apocalyptical year 2012 than with the unleashing of ALKERDEEL's second full album 'Morinde' upon this world.
"After a few successful demo's/EP'S, these Belgians are pushing up the ante. It's clear ALKERDEEL has progressed quite a bit since the release of 'Luizig'. Although the familiar elements are still present - raw sludge/doom infused with filthy black metal - the compositions have matured and gained more depth. The lo-fi approach of the previous albums made room for a more thoughtful recording process, making it sound perhaps more accessible but also allows the sound to reveal all its sluggish nuances. But rest assured, ALKERDEEL remains ALKERDEEL: a mean putrid steamroller that takes no prisoners!"
