NORWEGIAN BLACK METALLERS CREST OF DARKNESS ANNOUNCE DETAILS OF NINTH FULL-LENGTH ALBUM

This is probably the darkest and most brutal album we've ever made! It's also the most honest work ever from my perspective - So says CREST OF DARKNESS founder Ingar Amlien about "The God of Flesh", the ninth full-length album from the Norwegian Black Metal veterans.

Set for release on the 25th October on My Kingdom Music, "The God of Flesh" promises nine tracks filled with CREST OF DARKNESS' trademark Satanic themes. But this time the band has expanded the feel, variety and depth of their music, showing them to be as much at home with more progressive and melodic elements, as they are the with the aggressive and dark brutal side, for which they are known.


Recorded and mixed at the MLP Studio and Engineered by Nils H. Mæhlum, with guitars being recorded at Attic 43 and engineered by Rebo, "The God of Flesh" was produced by Crest of Darkness and mastered at the Kvålsonic Lab by Tom Kvålsvoll.

Seeking an outlet for his passion for sonic brutality and his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, on which he is an acknowledged expert, Amlien formed CREST OF DARKNESS in the mid nineties. The band today, which Amlien considers to be the strongest lineup to date, consists of Amlien (CONCEPTION, ROQUEFIRE, AMLIEN's INFERNO) on Bass and Vocals, Rebo on Rhythm and Lead Guitars, and Berhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on drums.


Of the new album and the contribution made by his band mates, Amlien had this to say:
During the whole production of the album I was thinking that now, more than ever before, I wanted to make an album my way! And, as a result, we haven't made any compromises whatsoever, in any direction. And I'm very fortunate to be able to say that I was not alone during the whole process. With the help of my fantastic band mates Rebo and Bernhard, it became possible to bring my darkest fantasies and visions to life through "The God of Flesh"
