“Around 2006 I have contact Erik the first time, I guess. We talked about the producing of the “Bondage Goat Zombie” album, but he wasn’t available. This time, we have to do it!! Our sound, attitude… or lets say trademark, is a symbiosis of all extremities that came out of this glorious genre,…Diabolical Blackl Death Metal. Since February 2012 we rehearse and write hard on nine shredding sound collages. To record chapter X with Erik is perfect, since he exactly know what we need and how we get this shit done. The thing is, the new compositions are full of intensity and pure aggression. The combination of European Metal coldness, atmosphere and sickest elements – crossed with an American brutal sound, is the master plan. This experiment is going to be ultra-sick! I dig to work with motivated, possessed and enthusiastic artists, to keep the fire burning, in all related things (producers, musicians, etc.) No rules, all is permitted. This is the main reason why BELPHEGOR survived almost 20 years”

“I am very excited to be recording and mixing the new Belphegor album at Mana. After many discussions with Helmuth and hearing some clips of new material, I know that the band is very focused and determined on making a harmoniously evil extreme masterpiece. We shall make one beast of an album that the fans have come to expect from Belphegor!”
