BAL-SAGOTH: Live Album Error?

May 9, 2005

According to a post on BAL-SAGOTH's official web site, reports have come in that the BAL-SAGOTH track featured on the "Armageddon Over Wacken 2004" live album has suffered from a serious audial misalignment during the process of mastering the track for CD. The raw gig footage, which the band have in their possession, shows that the track "The Empyreal Lexicon" was played correctly during the set, so if there is indeed an error in the final CD it was perpetrated by the sound technicians during post-production, resulting in the guitar track falling out of synchronization after approximately 1:30. As Armageddon Music have allegedly declined to comment on the matter, the situation remains both unconfirmed and unresolved.

BAL-SAGOTH are continuing work on their sixth album, tentatively due late summer/early fall via Nuclear Blast Records. "With over four years separating the fifth and sixth albums, fans of BAL-SAGOTH can rest assured that their patience shall be duly rewarded, and that the new opus will thematically and stylistically represent the climactic culmination of the epic BAL-SAGOTH hexalogy," reads a post on the band's web site. "The new album is certainly set to thrill and enthrall both new fans and longtime supporters alike. THE SIXTH KEY IS NIGH!"

BAL-SAGOTH are scheduled to play at the Tuska Open Air Metal Festival in Helsinki, Finland on July 17. Other BAL-SAGOTH live shows will be arranged for later in 2005.
