BELPHEGOR Release Lyric Video For New Song ‘Baphomet’
July 14th, 2017

Salzburg, Austria-based death / black metal band Belphegor have released an official lyric video for the track ‘Baphomet’, which can be viewed below.

Belphegor issue 11th full-length studio album Totenritual on September 15th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.

Frontman Helmuth Lehner commented: “It is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far. The drums are precise and very technical with loads of breaks, fills and tempo changes. The bass is like a panzer tank. Also the rhythm guitars are complete; utterly aggressive and obscure. You don’t hear guitars like that anywhere with such a massively low tuning. I’m really proud of all we have tracked so far and created for the new audial hellspawn. An honour – this horror!!”

The outing was recorded at Stage One Studios in Borgentreich, Germany with producer Andy Classen, and at Studio Mischmaschine in Austria. Mixing will be handled by Jason Suecof with mastering being undertaken by Mark Lewis, all at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida.

A third official trailer from the recording sessions, documenting frontman Helmuth Lehner laying down the rhythm guitar tracks, can be viewed below.

Cover artwork duties fell to Seth Siro Anton, who previously painted the cover artworks for Pestokalypse VI (2006) and Conjuring The Dead (2014)
