TEMPLE OF BAAL Premiere New Track

French death/black metallers TEMPLE OF BAAL premiered the first track off their upcoming album entitled Verses Of Fire. The release is coming out on October 22 in Europe and November 12 in North America via Agonia Records. The stream is available at: http://youtu.be/GH5yedt6otg

INFERNO

Verses Of Fire’s sound has been carefully manufactured by Andrew Guillotin in Hybreed Studios. Focusing on a more organic side thanks to the use of tube amps and natural drums, the production allows the natural old-school feeling of the band to shine through the whole album. Through ten tracks – lasting about an hour – TEMPLE OF BAAL explores a wide spectre of extreme metal: from raging blast beats and thrashing riffs, through haunted mid tempo vibes, and up to the point of band’s primal influence – the sinister sounds of early 90’s black/death metal.

New material will be available in digipack CDlimited double LP and extra limited gold LP (66 copies only).

Fans of the band can expect a fine blend between “Lightslaying Rituals” (sophomore release, 2009) aggression and the last split CD“The Vision Of Fading Mankind”‘s (2011) epic atmospheres.

Tracklist:

1. το αστέρι 418

2. Bloodangel

3. Arcana Silentium

4. The 10th Aethyr

5. Gates Of Death

6. Gnosis Of Fire

7. Golden Wings Of Azazel

8. Lord Of The Raging Seas

9. Serpens Luminis

10. Walls Of Fire
