The new album from Polish black metal legend! Almost 20 years since their debut album, Wicher (1996), SACRILEGIUM now return with their second full-length, Anima Lucifera. The album title refers directly to a line from a poem by Leopold Staff; excerpts of which have been used in the new Sacrilegium tracks. Similarly, the works of W. B. Yeats and Ferdnando Pessoa appear next to Nanturs original lyrics.
With Anima Lucifera, the band goes against the grain and abandons the path which they originally paved. Crossing their own borders and rejecting current popular conventions, Sacrilegium mark a new direction for themselves. They are not completely abandoning the pagan spirit but rather evolving from popular tradition in the direction of the esoteric school. Anima Lucifera explores occult themes, which accompanied the band members at the beginning of their journey in the 1990s. Today, however, their music is richer thanks to the experience they have gained over the last 20 years.
Old good black vinyl! The LP features 2 bonus tracks recorded for LP version exclusively! Packed in thick glossy gatefold sleeve with alternate cover painted by Chris Moyen!
8th full-lenght album is typical SATHANAS style that is s powerful, fresh and full of energy, combining the obscurity of Black Metal, rawness of old Death Metal with the intricacies of old school Thrash! Long awaited successor to Nightrealm Apocalypse from 2009, taking the dagger and plunges it right through the heart of the heavens, to watch the skies bleed for forgiveness!
Seventh full length album from US black thrash death metal legends SATHANAS, and with no doubt the strongest release in bands 20 year history. 10 songs of blasphemy and disgrace played in the obscure, raw old school style casting their evil spells with such titles as Ever Falling Darkness, Demonhellstorm or Black Witching Millennium. The gates are open again and the forces of the dark has been summoned, so be prepared for total demon hell storm in the spirit of old Metal! The album was mixed and mastered by Tore Sternja at Necromorbus Studios in Stockholm, Sweden.
