European diabolical death/black metal kings Belphegor have successfully finished the drum tracking and bass recordings for their new sinister masterpiece.

This eleventh full length album is to be entitled “Totenritual” and it will present nine new tracks laced with obscure magick and full of furious brutality on September 15th, 2017, worldwide.

Right after its unleashing, Serpenth (bass, grunts), Bloodhammer (drums) and the singer, guitarist and founder Helmuth Lehner will embark on an intensive worldwide touring cycle.

Helmuth Lehner states:
“It is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far. The drums are precise and very technical with loads of breaks, fills and tempo changes. The bass is like a panzer tank. Also the rhythm guitars are completed; utterly aggressive and obscure. You don't hear guitars like that anywhere with such a massively low tuning. I'm really proud of all we have tracked so far and created for the new audial hellspawn. An honour – this horror!!”...

Check out the trailer from the studio, below, where you can watch Bloodhammer torturing his kit.
