Candlelight Records has announced the signing of Italian extreme metal stalwarts BLASPHEMER. The group’s third album “The Sixth Hour” will be released worldwide on January 24.
The band commented:
“The unholy crusaders have found their vexil: the phoenix. Blasphemer’s third opus will see the light under the Candlelight Records banner.”
“The Sixth Hour” showcases twelve songs of pure blackened-death metal, mastered at the famous studio Hertz in Poland, known for their work with Behemoth, Decapitated and Vader. Fundamentally a concept album, “The Sixth Hour”‘s main theme is the way of the cross. In example, the last day of Jesus Christ, the path that led him from the Gethsemane to Golgotha. The aim of the album is to depict Jesus as merely human, trying to transpose into music the agony he felt in the last day.
The band have shared the first new track and video for ‘The Deposition’.
