Belphegor To Enter Mana Studios And Record New Album With Erik Rutan

The death/black metal commandos of Belphegor will enter Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Fla. next month to begin work on their new, yet-to-be-titled album with producer Erik Rutan. The band’s impending 10th studio release is due out late 2012 on Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented vocalist Helmuth, “Around 2006 I [had] contacted Erik the first time, I guess. We talked about the producing of the Bondage Goat Zombie album, but he wasn’t available. This time, we have to do it! Our sound, attitude… or lets say trademark, is a symbiosis of all extremities that came out of this glorious genre...diabolical black death metal.

“Since February 2012 we [rehearsed] and [wrote] hard on nine shredding sound collages. To recordchapter X with Erik is perfect, since he exactly [knows] what we need and how we get this done.

“The thing is, the new compositions are full of intensity and pure aggression. The combination of European Metal coldness, atmosphere and sickest elements - crossed with an American brutal sound, is the master plan. This experiment is going to be ultra-sick!

“I dig to work with motivated, possessed and enthusiastic artists, to keep the fire burning, in all related things (producers, musicians, etc.) No rules, all is permitted. This is the main reason why Belphegor survived almost 20 years!”

“I am very excited to be recording and mixing the new Belphegor album at Mana,” added Rutan. “After many discussions with Helmuth, and hearing some clips of new material, I know that the band is very focused and determined on making a harmoniously evil extreme masterpiece. We shall make one beast of an album that the fans have come to expect from Belphegor!”

Stay tuned to the official Belphegor website for regular studio reports, providing insight into the rehearsal/recording process.
