“Poland’s death- and black-metal-underground is bubbling hotter than lava in hell! AZARATH is an abominable beast, created with black magic, blasphemy and oversized death-lust. It just needs some seconds of listening to the destructive sounds of AZARATH for freezing and even crushing every kind of felicitousness. Razorblade-like guitars harmonize with distinctive high-speed-drums, played by nobody else than Inferno – the superb drummer of Behemoth, and build up a glorious manifest of epic brutality. On their current longplayer titled “Blasphemers’ Maledictions”, these squadrons of darkness also catch the listeners with apocalyptic sound-trips leading them to the underworld. Get ready for this burning cracker at HATEFEST tour!” (www.hatefest.eu)

“Blasphemers’ Maledictions” was recorded 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) – http://witchinghour.pl/web_new/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/AZARATH-TITLE.jpg

Fifth Azarath album was released worldwide by Witching Hour Productions on 29th June 2011 as exclusive digibook and limited 12” LP. Under this link you can listen to one of the new songs „Behold The Satan’s Sword”: http://witchinghour.pl/web_new/zespoly/azarath?lang=en

AZARATH presents cover artwork for “Blasphemers’ Maledictions”; Tour with Bulldozer and Witchmaster confirmed

May 12th, 2011

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!”

AZARATH – second band of BEHEMOTH’s drummer – strikes back with new album and new line-up! Touring in April!

February 23rd, 2011
AZARATH

AZARATH

Most merciless underground act returns with new release! Recording session of fifth album by the mighty Azarath took place in January and February in famous Hertz Studio (Vader, Behemoth, Lost Soul) where Wiesławscy Bros were responsible for production, mixing and mastering duties. Yet untitled full-length album will be released on 6th of June 2011 by Witching Hour Productions.

Recently Azarath underwent some personal changes – Necrosodom (guitar and vocals) replaced Bruno. Bass duties are now handled by P. Music was composed and arranged by Inferno and Bart, while Necrosodom wrote all the lyrics. 10 new devilish hymns were recorded for this album – as Inferno comments: “The character and atmosphere of music was changed considerably. The music is dark, ominous and spatial – in many parts refers to Black Metal and classics of the genre. Aggression and sonic massacre is not lacking at all – as this is our main frontline”. Here are the titles of several songs – “Behold The Satan’s Sword”, “Under The Will of The Lord”, “Deathstorms Raid The Earth”, “Lucifer’s Rising”.

Azarath  signed with Witching Hour, the label which will first release EP „Holy Possession” and then forthcoming full album. „Holy Possession” consisting of title track and cover of “Rebel Souls” by Damnation will be available as CD and 7”EP since 10th April. CD edition will be limited to 666 units (‘die hard’) and 7”EP will be limited to 333 copies – white vinyl with metal envelope containing also poster and badge. Iconoclastic graphics for full album and LP were designed by Boris Kaluzhny aka Hatefrost, Ukrainian artist residing in New York.

13.04.2011 LUBLIN – GRAFFITI
14.04.2011 RZESZOW – POD PALMA
15.04.2011 KRAKOW – FABRYKA
16.04.2011 KATOWICE – ARKADA
