According to a posting on their official web site, Sweden's LORD BELIAL have been confirmed as the headliners of the fourth annual Jalometalli Festival, set to be held August 19-20 in Oulu, Finland. The complete list of artists currently confirmed to appear at the festival is as follows:
DE LIRIUM'S ORDER
FOR MY PAIN…
NATIONAL NAPALM SYNDICATE
SWALLOW THE SUN
As previously reported, LORD BELIAL are currently writing material for their new, as-yet-untitled album, which is set to be released later this year on Regain Records. The CD's musical direction will be "a natural developed continuation of [last year's] 'The Seal of Belial'," according to a posting on the group's web site.
The recording sessions for the upcoming album will once again take place at Andy La Rocque's (KING DIAMOND) Los Angered Recording studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
