SAMAEL: Listen To New Version Of 'Antigod' From Upcoming 'Lux Mundi' Reissue

December 25, 2018

"Lux Mundi" (which translates as "Light of the World"),the 2011 album from Swiss industrial black metallers SAMAEL, will be reissued in early 2019.

A new version of the song "Antigod", taken from the "Lux Mundi" reissue, can be streamed below.

SAMAEL previously stated about "Antigod": "['Antigod'] was the first single [from 'Lux Mundi'] released on November 19, 2010. Lyrically, the song is a firm stand against any kind of religion."

"Lux Mundi", which took almost three years to be completed, was recorded in 2010 after the band spent a few days in pre-production in Germany with with longtime collaborator Waldemar Sorychta (MOONSPELL, LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT, GRIP INC.). The actual recordings took place in two different locations in Switzerland and the mix was handled by extreme metal specialist Russ Russell in Kettering, England.

This past July, SAMAEL recruited Pierre "Zorrac" Carroz (SCARS DIVIDE, HEROD) as its new bassist.

Longtime SAMAEL guitarist Marco "Makro" Rivao left the group in April "to do something different." Bassist Thomas "Drop" Betrisey has since taken over guitar duties in the band.

SAMAEL's latest album, "Hegemony", was released in October 2017 via Napalm Records.
