Totenritual

Having risen to iconic status when it comes to the supreme death / black metal arts, Belphegor are now strengthening this level with their new masterpiece, ‘Totenritual’. Ever since their now legendary debut ‘The Last Supper’ in 1995, mainman Helmuth and his henchmen from Salzburg, Austria have relentlessly worked their way to the top with technical skills, sophisticated songwriting and truly blasphemous lyrics.

After spawning ‘Blood Magick Necromance’ in 2011, Belphegor triumphed with their highly acclaimed fifth Nuclear Blast release ‘Conjuring The Dead’ in 2014 - an opus that saw the band ready to conquer, possessed, on fire and stronger than ever. The ten new compositions unleashed a state of brutality yet unknown to mankind. Soundscapes of a melodic monstrosity, forceful and fierce yet fulfilled with razor sharp precision. Straight in-your-face onslaughts, devastating string slaughter, blazing machine gun drums and the sickest vokills, exceeding even the sickness of any other Belphegor release to date.

For the first time ever Belphegor were reinforced by two guest musicians: joining in for vocals on ‘Legions Of Destruction’ were Deicide’s Glen Benton and Mayhem’s Attila. The production came from none other than legendary studio wizard and Hate Eternal head honcho Erik Rutan, who gave the typical Belphegor sound a menacing depth that will leave you, feeling you just been run over by a WWII battle tank. However, controversy is never too far away from the band, with mainman Helmuth being spat on by a member of a Orthodox Christian organisation during a visit to Russia in 2016.

Now Belphegor return with ‘Totenritual’. Mixed by Jason Suecof (Trivium, Death Angel) and mastered by Mark Lewis (Devildriver, Whitechapel) and featuring nine of their most diabolical black metal tracks to date. No wonder Metal Hammer have described them as “an assault on the senses.”
