Interview With Helmuth

By Peter Atkinson

Photos from https://www.facebook.com/belphegor

It takes a tough son of a bitch to survive for more than two decades in the extreme metal underground. And Helmuth Lehner – or just Helmuth, if you please – is a tough son of a bitch to be sure. As frontman, guitarist and driving force behind Austria’s self-described “diabolical death musick” deviants Belphegor, he’s kept the band going through myriad lineup changes, injuries that prompted the departures of bassist Barth in 2006 and co-founding guitarist Sigurd in 2007, and his own brush with death in 2011 after contracting typhoid fever during a South American tour in support of the Blood Magick Necromance album.
After a year-long struggle to get himself back in fighting shape, Helmuth and Belphegor were back at it – albeit it a bit less rigorously. In late 2012, the band slowly began working on what became their 10th album Conjuring The Dead with Hate Eternal mainman Erik Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios in Florida. The album, which finds Belphegor not losing one iota of their brutality or depravity, was issued in early August.
A few weeks prior to Conjuring’s release, in responses to e-mailed questions, Helmuth offered the following about Belphegor’s endurance, his own return from death’s door and the new album’s celebration of “Diabolical Death Metal.” The ALL CAPS and creative spellings are his own.

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2013

September 1st, 2013

Bloodstock Open Air 2013

@ Catton Park, Derbyshire, UK

8th – 11th August 2013

Review by Anna Dumpe & Ben Spencer

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.

Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!

This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.

Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

BELPHEGOR: Upcoming Release Pushed Back Until 2014

March 23rd, 2013

Belphegor_live_4.jpgBELPHEGOR´s highly anticipated as-of-yet-untitled album has been postponed for a  worldwide release sometime in early 2014 via Nuclear Blast Records. This will be band’s first album since founding member Helmuth Lehner‘s near death experience (detailed here and here), which caused the band to cancel several tours in 2011/2012.

“Drums, bass and guitars are all tracked. It sounds brutal,  more aggressive and more death than what was heard on the last LPs,” commented Lehner. “The soundwall is massive – just as expected. Thanks to Erik Rutan for the extra motivation and forcing us to nail down tight as fukk performances. Furthermore I am set to lay down the vocals in June/ July, the mix down and mastering will be done in September. A tough call, but it was the best for the record to decide to delay the release date again, to unleash the album in early 2014. Be prepared for Diabolical Death Musick!”

Song titles so far include “Gasmask Terror”, “Rex Tremendae Majestatis”, “Take Her, Lucifer!” and “The Inverted Cross”. Keep an eye-out for the in-studio trailer of the rhythm guitar tracking sometime in April!

Austria’s kings of non-repentant supreme death-black metal art, BELPHEGOR, released the first studio report for their as of yet untitled 10th studio album a while back. The trailer provides a glimpse into the recording process which took place at Mana Studios in Tampa, Florida with producer Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL). Watch the band tracking the bass and drums here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEJw8DVF-As

BELPHEGOR’s most recent masterpiece Blood Magick Necromance was produced by the legendary Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY) at his Abyss Studios (IMMORTAL, DIMMU BORGIR, HYPOCRISY, DARK FUNERAL etc.) in Pärlby, Sweden and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren. The album was released on January 14th, 2011 in Europe and on February 8th, 2011 in North America.

BELPHEGOR Wrapping Up Recording of New Album at Mana Studios

November 28th, 2012

Austria’s kings of non-repentant, supreme death-black metal art, BELPHEGOR, are currently finishing up the recording sessions for the highly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s Blood Magick Necromance. The sessions are taking place at this very moment at Mana Studios in Tampa, Florida with producer Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL). Vocalist/guitarist/head blasphemer Helmuth, is busy finishing all vocals, overdubs and lead guitar parts.

“Just returned from Leeds where we nuked the ingenious Damnation Festival. England is always a pleasure to shred. This time was no exception: what a brutal crowd it was,” stated vocalist/guitarist/head blasphemer Helmuth. “I already tracked the four rhythm guitars at Mana Studios in Florida. This album is gonna be brutal, way more death metal blasphemy than the last records. The nine sound collages will reveal a new dimension of chaos, with the uttermost aggressive soundwall possible. It’s fantastic to work with Erik! This dude is really challenging us to give our best. You demons deserve it!”

Expect three trailers from the guitar and vocal sessions, coming to you within the next months.

The as of yet untitled album is tentatively scheduled for a worldwide release in March 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.

BELPHEGOR TO ENTER MANA STUDIOS NEXT MONTH;New record due out late 2012 on Nuclear Blast Records

April 9th, 2012

AUSTRIA – Supreme death/black metal commando, Belphegor, will enter Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Fla. next month to begin work on its new, yet-to-be-titled album with producer, Erik Rutan. The band’s impending 10th studio release is due out late 2012 on Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented vocalist, Helmuth, “Around 2006 I [had] contact Erik the first time, I guess. We talked about the producing of the Bondage Goat Zombie album, but he wasn’t available. This time, we have to do it! Our sound, attitude… or lets say trademark, is a symbiosis of all extremities that came out of this glorious genre…Diabolical Black Death Metal.

“Since February 2012 we [rehearsed] and [wrote] hard on nine shredding sound collages. To recordchapter X with Erik is perfect, since he exactly [knows] what we need and how we get this done.

“The thing is, the new compositions are full of intensity and pure aggression. The combination of European Metal coldness, atmosphere and sickest elements – crossed with an American brutal sound, is the master plan. This experiment is going to be ultra-sick!

“I dig to work with motivated, possessed and enthusiastic artists, to keep the fire burning, in all related things (producers, musicians, etc.) No rules, all is permitted. This is the main reason why Belphegor survived almost 20 years!”

“I am very excited to be recording and mixing the new Belphegor album at Mana,” added Rutan. “After many discussions with Helmuth, and hearing some clips of new material, I know that the band is very focused and determined on making a harmoniously evil extreme masterpiece. We shall make one beast of an album that the fans have come to expect from Belphegor!”

Stay tuned to the official Belphegor website: www.belphegor.at for regular studio reports, providing insight into the rehearsal/recording process.

BELPHEGOR: Update On Singer’s Health/Working On Material For New Album

February 27th, 2012

Guitarist/vocalist Helmuth Lehner, of extreme metal commando BELPHEGOR, has revealed that the group is working on fresh material for their tenth full-length album. The as of yet untitled record is tentatively slated for a late 2012 release, and will be the follow up to January 2011´s Blood Magick Necreomance. From this coming Saturday until next Wednesday, BELPHEGOR will start the first rehearsal session for the album, in Abtenau, Austria. The drum duties will again be handled by Mr. Marthyn, who did an outstanding job on Blood Magick Necreomance.

“It’s amazing to have the opportunity to be creative again and compose a new audible monster,” commented Helmuth. “I begun the compositions in November 2011, after I had to spend five weeks in the hospital and 6 weeks in a rehabilitation center because of my health issues. I survived this hard trial, which still seems unreal. I’m not fully recovered but feel way better now, I can say. Unfortunately we had to cancel all tours until June 2012, when we will get back on the road, and will start with some European open air rituals.”

“At this time, we don’t feel the pressure of a hard touring schedule and all the rigors surrounding that,” stated bass devastator Serpenth., “The way we can concentrate and create these arrangements in a completely focused way and can even put more energy, blood and guts inside. We are working intensely on ten tracks. We are totally concentrated, you know, the musick reigns above all. Magick. It’s time for a new chapter.”

BELPHEGOR most recent masterpiece Blood Magick Necromance was produced by the legendary Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY) at his Abyss Studios (IMMORTAL, DIMMU BORGIR, HYPOCRISY, DARK FUNERAL etc.) in Pärlby, Sweden and mastered by Jonas Kjellgren. The album was released on January 14th, 2011 in Europe and on February 8th, 2011 in North America.
