Belphegor to Record New Album, Peter Tägtgren Will Produce
Death/black metal titans BELPHEGOR will enter The Abyss Studios in Pärbly, Sweden on June 19, to start recording the drums for their next album. The band has tapped Peter Tägtgren (Immortal, Celtic Frost, Hypocrisy, Dimmu Borgir) to produce the as of yet untitled album.
Belphegor’s main man Helmuth said: “A new challenge. We’re high on fire and totally motivated. I’m stoked to work together with a dude that needs no instruction, an excellent musician/producer. I’m sure that Peter will create a massive soundwall for our ninth longplayer. We are absolutely focused on the new album. That’s the only reason why we play only a few open airs this summer. The masterplan is to record again in 4/5 sessions til middle of September. Once again letting the tracks slowly take form, with the songwriting and production reaching a new level of intensity.”
Commented Peter Tägtgren: “I am really looking forward to producing/ mixing the new Belphegor album. It’s going to be a blast… you better be prepared.”
Expect an early 2011 release through Nuclear Blast Records.
