The upcoming fourth full-length release from the notorious UK act The Meads Of Asphodel, entitled ‘The Murder of Jesus The Jew,’ is set for North American release via Candlelight Records on January 11, 2011, their first for the label. Continuing their notoriously bizarre integration of torrid black metal, infused with countless other styles, and the band’s unique style of theatrical storytelling, the madness runs rampant on the new album, sure to be one of the most talked about black metal releases of 2011.

Proof of this bizarre and intriguing genre-bending mastery can be witnessed today via a Stereogum premiere of The Meads Of Asphodel’s newly unleashed track “My Psychotic Sand Deity” HERE.
