A roundup of the latest news from Napalm Records including updates on Samael, Exit Eden and Thy Antichrist.
Swiss black metal pioneers SAMAEL have already given fans a first glimpse of their upcoming album “Hegemony” in the form of a music video premiere for the track “Angel of Wrath”.
“Hegemony” is not only an exceptional addition to the SAMEL discography alongside albums such as “Passage” and “Eternal” the album will also mark the band’s 30th anniversary!
The band states:
“The creative process that leads to the completion of « Hegemony » took over 4 years. Throughout that time we lived with and saw each song growing into what they finally became.
« Hegemony » is an album that acknowledges the world we’re living in, and emphasized on the effort to take control of that world. It’s all about change and evolution.
It’s a strong statement, a testament of our time and a call for revolution.”
Founded in 1987 as an old school black metal act that was influenced by the likes of Bathory, fellow countrymen Celtic Frost, and Venom, the brothers Vorph and Xy later developed the band’s style further, leaning toward a more industrial dark metal sound.
The highly anticipated album “Hegemony” will be released on October 13, 2017 via Napalm Records!
