BIBLE OF THE DEVIL Completes Work On New Album

Veteran Chicago rock n' roll metallers BIBLE OF THE DEVIL have announced the completion of their fifth full-length album and second for Rome, Italy-based label Cruz Del Sur Music. Entitled "Freedom Metal", BIBLE OF THE DEVIL's eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2006's "The Diabolic Procession" marches beyond the epic concept of their previous release toward an effort simply overflowing with cranium-bludgeoning classics-in-the-making. Collaborating again with acclaimed Chicago engineer and producer Sanford Parker (MINSK, NACHTMYSTIUM, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR) for the recording of "Freedom Metal", BIBLE OF THE DEVIL's fans can expect shit-hot and throttling production values for the new material that are the standard at Parker's Semaphore Studio in Chicago.

Having completed the "Freedom Metal" sessions in May 2008, BIBLE OF THE DEVIL has spent the two years since their last full-length release honing the new material live and even discarding songs that the band felt would not make the cut, a luxury that they had seldom been afforded before in the band's history. Vocalist and guitarist Mark Hoffmann said, "This is a true heavy guitar-lover's album. One for people who would rather actually plug a real Les Paul into a Marshall and just lay waste than those who would merely simulate shredding on their Playstation 3. Although, they too are invited to the party." And before the jingoist, big-dumb American implications of including "Freedom" in the title come flying at the band whose cryptic moniker continues to attract endlessly redundant inquiries about Satanism, Hoffmann had to say, "We ain't talking about the perverse concept of 'Freedom' in Dubya's sense. We're talking about 'Freedom' in the purest, Hobbesian sense, 'a free man is he that is not hindered to do what he hath the will to do'. And metal."

Look for BIBLE OF THE DEVIL's "Freedom Metal" in the of fall 2008 on Cruz Del Sur Music.
