BELPHEGOR main man Helmuth comments: “We’ve rearranged and re-recorded a medley of two songs off the BLUTSABBATH album  as a promotional single for the re-release of our first two full-length LPs due 14th January 2022 in double CD and single LP formats. Florian Klein, aka Torturer, tracked the drums, and the “BLACKEST SABBATH 1997” was mixed & mastered at Jens Bogren´s Fascination Street studios in Örebro, Sweden. It was a thrilling experiment to re-record this song I wrote in 1996 with a new soundwall, our current skills and recording capabilities 25 years later. We hail you demons, enjoy this special offering from us!”

Better be quick and keep your eyes and ears open since BELPHEGOR already have new aces up their sleeves waiting to surprise and mesmerize their listeners in the next weeks…
BELPHEGOR was founded in 1993 and spread like a virus within the underground. Meanwhile, their »Bloodbath In Paradise« demo has become legendary and paved the baleful path into the souls of thousands of listeners. Anti-religious with nihilistic tendencies as well as provocative topics, BELPHEGORmoved on. The debut album »The Last Supper« (1995) let the community of followers and opponents grow. Inexorably, the band pushes their destructive ways forward in the following years. BELPHEGOR become louder, more obsessed and more dynamic, and their albums now have cult status. To think about the scene doesn’t work without thinking of BELPHEGOR. In 2008, the band sent their followers to the edge of hell with »Bondage Goat Zombie« and sparked an all-consuming Death Metal fire with blasting black metal influences. This masterpiece, inspired by the Marquis de Sade, is one of the most demanding works the genre has offered to this day. BELPHEGOR showed themselves equally brutal and baleful on the successors »Walpurgis Rites – Hexenwahn« (2009) and »Blood Magick Necromance« (2011). The band received a lot of great feedback for their intense live performances as well, and reached out to a big and loyal fan base. Their obscure rituals full of diabolical magick have haunted the world several times – next to extensive tours through Asia and Europe, BELPHEGOR have also completed eleven tours through North America and hundreds of open airs. Their last album “Totenritual“, internationally lauded by fans and press, dropped on September 15th 2017 and marks the eleventh hailing from BELPHEGOR.
