In other news, the band have also offered an update on their new album, which is expected to be released in April 2017:

“We’ve just finished the fourth rehearsal session. The process consisted of 13 exhausting, creative days in a row. Nine compositions took form and already sound massive. It’s important to me that we get better, tighter, raise the dynamics, and have each musician develop his skills with his instruments to bring our sound to the next level. We’ve always done our own thing and continue to do so.

Live ceremonies are still the essence of Belphegor, touring worldwide is our main priority after writing and releasing new musick for our loyal supporters. The new, currently untitled album will be our most obscure and brutal one. It’s the first time we’ve tuned our guitars to H5 and #A6, which is really low, and will add a new touch to our sound. Release date will be in April 2017! We’re forever on fire and ready for new challenges. Progress is experimentation and improvement. An honour – this horror.”

Belphegor Frontman Spat on by Orthodox Christian Activist In Russian Airport

While arriving at the airport for their show in St. Petersburg, Russia yesterday (April 19), Belphegor’s Helmuth Lehner was spat on by an Orthodox Christian activist named Anatoly Artyukh. The offender then continued to act agressively, before being stopped by Nile‘s Karl Sanders. The attack was due to the “blasphemous” nature of the band’s music and a claim that said Lehner started the confrontation, despite the fact that video evidence shows otherwise.
