Having risen to icon status when it comes to supreme death / black metal art, BELPHEGOR strengthened this position with their 2014 masterpiece, »Conjuring The Dead«.
Ever since their now legendary debut »The Last Supper« in 1995, mainman Helmuth and his henchmen have relentlessly worked their way to the top with technical skills, sophisticated songwriting and truly blasphemous lyrics.
After spawning »Blood Magick Necromance« in 2011, BELPHEGOR were back with their highly acclaimed fifth Nuclear Blast release: »Conjuring The Dead« - an opus that saw the band ready to conquer, possessed, on fire and stronger than ever. The ten compositions unleashed a state of brutality yet unknown to mankind. Soundscapes of a melodic monstrosity, forceful & fierce yet fulfilled with razor sharp precision. Straight in-your-face onslaughts, devastating string-slaughter, blazing machine gun drums and the sickest vo-kills, exceeding even the sickness of any other BELPHEGOR release to date!
For the first time ever BELPHEGOR is reinforced by two guest musicians: Joining in for vo-kills on ‘Legions Of Destruction’ are DEICIDE’s Glen Benton and MAYHEM’S Attila.
The production comes from none other than legendary studio wizard and HATE ETERNAL head honcho Erik Rutan, who gave the typical BELPHEGOR sound a menacing depth that will leave you feeling like you've just been run over by a WWII battle tank!
For visual duties the band gathered forces once again with Greek artist Seth Siro Anton, who also painted the cover of »Pestapokalypse IV« in 2006.
