BELPHEGOR Begin Recording New Album

Austrian death/black metal act BELPHEGOR have entered producer Andy Classen's Stage One studios in Germany to begin recording their sixth album, tentatively due next spring via an as-yet-undetermined label. The group have posted the following studio report on their official web site:

"After two weeks of being in the studio working very intense, here you go for another update... First, it's a real pleasure recording at Stage One — the studio's killer, so I know the next couple of months are gonna be fuckin' memorable, this will be a monster of a record!!!

"Nefastus nailed the ten commandments in less then 6 days of hard snare attacking, wow that's Olympia.

"This is definitely the tightest [and] heaviest drumming you will hear on a BELPHEGOR album till now. The high speed-blast-beats and double-bass drums turned out most precise and brutal, to be honest it's already blowing us away.
The German maniac with polish blood in his veins deserves a gold medal for it!

"We decided for the new Warwick 4-string bass that Barth bought for the bass recordings, with a bit of old-school Master distortion the parts were played directly in the sound desk.

"Helmuth and the producer Andy took only 4-5 hours to find 'the' perfect guitar sound. There were a lot of choices between amps, pedals and so forth, but in the end the gear was the band's Rectifier Mesa Boogie amp, one 800 Marshall cabinett 4x12, and several Jackson Guitars.

"Helmuth and Sigurd shredded the four rhythm guitars in five days, with the most dynamic possible. Well, all we need now is some sick samples, the cold melody/overdub guitar parts and loads of chaos leads, and of course the vocals. Die 10 Werke are starting to show their real form and I can say we're pretty damn pleased, can't wait till this masterpiece is finally finished.

"Well, the second session in Stage One Studios takes place from 22.-29. December."

In other news, a BELPHEGOR have announced that a "serious company for the 'The Goatreich – Fleshcult' opus on LP format has been found. Await the limited edition of 800 cps. via Goatruler Productions (Germany) in early February 2006 (gatefold and heavy vinyl - 180 gr.)."

BELPHEGOR's fifth full-length album, "The Goatreich - Fleshcult", was released in Europe in February via Napalm Records. The CD was recorded at Mastersound Studio in Fellbach, Germany and is the follow-up to 2003's "Lucifer Incestus".
