AZARATH, second band of Behemoth’s drummer – Inferno, has recently finished working on its fifth album “BLASPHEMERS’ MALEDICTIONS” . Recording session took place in January and February in famous Hertz Studio (Behemoth, Vader, Lost Soul) where Wiesławscy Bros were responsible for production, mixing and mastering duties. Cover artwork and layout was painted and designed by Zbigniew M. Bielak (Absu, Watain, Destroyer666, Autopsy), who comments on his impressions in this way: “A new album, a new Azarath. At any given angle – Art Nouveau. Perverse ornaments, masses of air, venomous malevolence in seemingly soothing forms… Forging these virtues into an image was indeed quite some challenge, even though some seeds of the vision were already couple years old. ‘Blasphemers’ Maledictions’ is indeed an unexpectedly crisp waft in the steadily disappointing deathmetal milieu, alas – to anticipate teutonic translation - a WICHTIG Hour strikes!”
