The Skinny: French black/death metal veterans, Temple Of Baal, have set Mysterium as the title of their next full-length album, due on October 2nd via Agonia Records, and “Divine Scythe” as the first single to be released. The song, which features guest vocals by Georges Balafas (Drowning, Eibon, Decline Of The I) is available for listening just below.

In their 15+ year career, marked by four full-lengths and numerous split releases, the highly respected French coven Temple Of Baal have evolved from a primitive black/thrash outfit into a monstrous black/death metal entity of epic dimensions. Verses Of Fire, the last album (2013), was acclaimed worldwide as a milestone in the band’s career, allowing Temple Of Baal to perform at notable festivals such as Hellfest, Motocultor, Summer Breeze, Kings Of Black Metal and Speyer Grey Mass.
