Almost 20 years after the release of the influential pagan black metal album, Wicher(1996), and 15 years since their split up, what may have been unthinkable is now becoming reality: the Polish black metal legends are back and they will release a brand new full-length, Anima Lucifera , in the spring of 2016. Opening this new chapter in SACRILEGIUM‘s history, a limited edition single, Angelus , will be released on 28 December 2015 via Pagan Records, which released the aforementioned debut full-length.
The advance stream of “Angelus” is available under the following links:
The title track of the single (in both album and demo versions) is an example of what to expect of the band on their upcoming full-length release in 2016: that traditional black metal sound they are known for, however, with a brutal and more aggressive kick and, yet, not lacking their unique touch of melancholy.
The single contains two versions of the title track; an album and demo version. It also comprises of remixes done by guest artists: In Slaughter Natives (industrial), Zenial (experimental, avant-garde), ROD (Slavonic folk-dubstep) and Echoes of Yul (post-rock).
Angelus is being released in digital format as well as a DigiFile CD edition limited to 500 copies.
