Austrian death/ black metal metallers BELPHEGOR
have commissioned Greek artist Anthon Siro Seth
to create the artwork for the band's new album. Seth
has already started working on the cover art and some magical images. He says in a statement: "It will be a great challenge creating the artwork for BELPHEGOR
's new masterpiece. My mission is clear: creating the most disturbing artwork I have ever made!"
: "It’s good to have Seth
recruited again. He did the 'Pestapokalypse VI'
graphics back in 2006.
"The lyrical content deals with blasphemy, exorcism, and blackest romantic. He's the perfect choice for the atmosphere we are looking for."BELPHEGOR
's new album is tentatively due in August 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records. The third and last recording session for the CD took place from November 29 through December 14, with Helmuth
laying down the final vocals, overdubs and the guitar solos. The follow-up to 2011's "Blood Magick Necromance"
was recorded at Mana Recording Studios
in St. Petersburg, Florida with producer Erik Rutan
, MORBID ANGEL
, CANNIBAL CORPSE
: "This album is gonna be brutal, way more death metal blasphemy than the last records. The nine sound collages will reveal a new dimension of chaos, with the uttermost aggressive soundwall possible."
He added, "It's fantastic to work with Erik
; this dude is really challenging, to give the best... 'cause you demons deserve it."
