Swiss industrial black metallers SAMAEL will embark on a European headlining tour in September. Support on the trek — which is scheduled to kick off on September 1 and conclude on October 2 in Spain — will come from SEPTICFLESH and .
SAMAEL recently filmed a video for the song “Luxferre” in Gothenburg, Sweden with director Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company, who has previously worked with DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE and KAMELOT, among others. The clip can now be viewed below.
“Luxferre” comes off SAMAEL‘s new album, “Lux Mundi” (English-language translation: “Light of the World”), which was released on April 29 in Europe and May 3 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD features cover artwork by SLUDGE drummer Patrick Pidoux, who previously worked with SAMAEL on 2007’s “Solar Soul” and 2009’s “Above”.

Announcement from DEMONICAL, the masters of Swedish Death Metal Darkness:
“We are utterly thrilled to announce our first ever battle on US-soil – the Rites of Darkness Festival in San Antonio TX – as well as our first ever shows in Thailand and Spain. We can also reveal that Pablo Magallanes will join us as a second guitarist on the upcoming march through Europe. The addition of a second axe-man for live situations brings us to new heights and we can deliver the tracks – both new and old – with more power and might”
