Belphegor began their first rehearsal sessions for their new album last Tuesday in Abtenau, Salzburg (Austria).
Front man Helmuth Lehner commented:
"Magnificent nature covered in snow that has arrived in the mountains with -11 degrees [12 ºF] here and we're freezing our asses off. Just perfect for creating brutal sound collages. With this currently untitled album we will try to develop and bring everything to a new level, since I have the feeling this is the strongest recording line-up we've ever had. Regards to blood brother Barth Resch for the photo shoot."
Check out this exclusive clip of Belphegor playing 'Totenkult - Exegesis Of Deterioration' recorded live inside their ‘rehearsal bunker’. This scorching death/black metal track will be included on the upcoming album, scheduled for a late 2016, early 2017 release.

Belphegor's new project will commence two-and-a-half years after the highly-acclaimed ‘Conjuring The Dead’ album, which was released via Nuclear Blast records in August 2014.

Since the release of Belphegor’s now legendary debut ‘The Last Supper’ in 1995, band founder Helmuth and his henchmen have relentlessly worked their way to the top with their technical proficiency, sophisticated song writing and truly blasphemous lyrics. Having now risen to iconic status in the art of supreme death/black metal, Belphegor continue to strengthen their craft as one of the most extreme line ups to ever come out of that scene.
The band members describing their hellride as ‘Supreme Death/ Black Metal Art‘.
Belphegor released their tenth studio album ‘Conjuring The Dead‘ in August 2014 – it is an opus that sees the band possessed, on fire and ready to conquer. Their ten latest song compositions unleashed a state of brutality that were yet unknown to mankind as soundscapes of a melodic monstrosity; forceful and fierce with razor sharp precision. The record has been described as a straight in-your-face onslaught with devastating string-slaughtering, blazing machine gun drums and the sickest vocals which exceeded even the sickness of any other Belphegor release to date.
