8TH SIN To Release Final Album 'Cosmogenesis'

November 5, 2012

Swedish industrial metal veterans 8TH SIN will release the final edition of their trilogy, "Cosmogenesis", on November 23 in Europe and February 3, 2013 in the USA via Soulseller Records. Over six years in the making, the CD contains 15 tracks, six of which are bonus tracks. Among them are two stunning covers of DEPECHE MODE's "Walking in My Shoes" and VENOM's "Black Metal".

Apart from the frontman IT (from VONDUR, OPHTHALAMIA, ABRUPTUM, WAR),8TH SIN consists of well-known metal masters Michael Bohlin, Johan Husgafvel (both part of the band PAIN) and Zacharias Ahlvik.

Michael and Johan have been touring relentlessly all over the world with PAIN for the past six years so the project was delayed.

Michael completed work on "Cosmogenesis" right before the big European PAIN tour kicked off in late 2012.

The track listing for "Cosmogenesis" is as follows:

01. Teonanacatl (Flesh Of The Gods)
02. Perfectly Wrong
03. Precession Of The Equinoxes
04. ID Zero
05. Safety Exit
06. Plumed Serpent Rise
07. Ekpyrosis
08. Cosmogenesis
09. The Eight Sins - Part III

Bonus tracks:

10. Walking In My Shoes
11. Black Metal
12. Irreligious - Mobhead 12 Mix
13. A Sleepover At The Feeling Of Death - Mobhead 12 Mix
14. Irreligious - Rectifier Club Mix 135
15. The 11th Commandment
