Sion, Switzerland-based metal group Samael have signed an album contract with Napalm Records, revealing this development on January 23rd, 2017.

Samael issued the following statement: “We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve tightened the knot with Napalm Records for the release of our new album! We’re looking forward to this exciting alliance for what will undoubtedly be the most important record in the Samael history!

“We’ve been around long enough to appreciate the importance of collaboration when it comes to turn projects into reality. We still have many great things to achieve and our partnership with Napalm Records will most certainly help us in doing so.

“2017 is the year! With a dynamic and enthusiastic team behind us and with the help of our dedicated fans we’re more than ready to unleashed new music upon the world… More to follow soon!”

Napalm Records A&R Sebastian Münch shared the following words, meanwhile: “I could not be prouder! Today we would like to announce the worldwide signing of the Swiss cult band Samael! Samael has created some of the most lethal and authentic black metal albums with Blood Ritual (1992) and Ceremony Of Opposites (1994)! With a more industrial approach later on, masterpieces likes Passage (1996) and Eternal (1999) saw the light of day! To make a long story short, Samael are musical geniuses and we are happy to continue, together, this success story! Welcome to the Napalm family!”

Samael’s line-up is as follows;

Vorph (vocals and guitars)
Makro (guitars)
Drop (bass)
