SAMAEL: 'Era One' Project To See Light Of Day, Early Albums To Be Reissued

SAMAEL's Vorph and Xy are currently reworking their "Era One" project (originally completed and delivered to Century Media Records in September 2002) for a January 2006 release through Century Media. The Swiss band's former label is also planning to reissue in Europe the group's "Ceremony of Opposites" (1994) and "Worship Him" (1991) albums this fall as a special "deluxe edition."

As previously reported, SAMAEL will spend the next few months writing material for the follow-up to last year's "Reign of Light" album. The group's as-yet-untitled new CD is not expected to surface until late 2006 at the earliest.

SAMAEL's last release was the "On Earth" single, featuring the album version of the title cut, plus various remixes, along with a cover of DEPECHE MODE's "I Feel You", a video for "Telepath" and a live recording of the track "On Earth", recorded in Paris, France.

SAMAEL's video for the song "Telepath" was shot before the start of the group's 2004 European tour in Gothenburg, Sweden with directors Roger Johansson and Alex Hansson. The clip, which reportedly "shows two sides of a personality trying to get in touch with each other," has received airplay via various video outlets in Europe.

"Reign of Light" was released in North American in February via Nuclear Blast Records.
