Diabolical Death/Black Metal troop Belphegor have released the debut single off their forthcoming album. The track, entitled “Baphomet” is taken from Totenritual which will see release through Nuclear Blast on September 15.

Main man Helmuth commented on the new album and single: “This LP is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far – everything pushes the limits of anything we have done before. It is highly appreciated when people enjoy our legacy, the possession, the magick surrounding and within BELPHEGOR! “Baphomet”, is a brutal neck-breaking hellride. Push play and crank your speakers to the max!!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
