Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of Blaze Of Perdition, one of the leading forces of the unstoppable polish Black Metal scene.

Blaze Of Perdition comments: “We are thrilled and honored to become part of the label with such an undeniable input into the history of metal music. We’re hoping for a long and fruitful cooperation, which will begin with our fifth full-length album that’s already shaping up and will bear the name ‘The Harrowing of Hearts‘.”

Blaze Of Perdition was founded in 2007 by guitarist XCIII and started its activity by releasing a split CD, In the Void and Serpent, the Spirit is One, with the Russian band Pseudogod. The band’s line-up changed numerous times over the years, however XCIII and Sonneillon remained the source of all musical and conceptual content. November 2nd, 2013 turned out to be fatal as the band’s bassist died in a car crash on tour, and the vocalist Sonneillon became unable to participate in live activities due to his serious injuries; however, he remained important in the band’s creative process and responsible for the studio vocal recordings, lyrics, graphic design as well as contact with the media.

Blaze Of Perdition recorded four full-length albums and is currently working on the fifth one, planned for release in 2019/2020.

Lucifer’s Child To Release Second Album, “The Order” In November

Greek black metal supergroup Lucifer’s Child has announced that they will release their sophomore studio album, “The Order” on November 9th, through Agonia Records, with artwork from Daniele Valeriani (Dark Funeral, Dissection, Mayhem.)

Lucifer’s Child originates from Athens. Its music is a bridge to the world of atmospheric black metal, and a vessel for spiritual self-expression through lyrics. The goal of unifying these two elements gleamed clearly in the eyes of George Emmanuel, a prolific guitarist primarily known for his work as part of Rotting Christ (and a former guitarist of Chaostar), when he formed the band together with bassist Stathis Ridis (a member of another long-running Hellenic metal unit, Nightfall) in 2013. Born from a partnership between two talented musicians, the duo quickly expanded to take in vocalist Marios Dupont (Karma Violens) and drummer Nick Vell (Chaostar), and delivered their debut album The Wiccan in 2015. Encouraged by the album’s keen reception, followed by several festival appearences (incl. Inferno Festival, Blastfest and Incineration Festival), Lucifer’s Child returns in a darker, more extreme shade, passionate in outperforming its bold debut.

The Order was recorded, mixed and mastered in Emmanuel’s own recording studio, Pentagram. He commented on the new album: “After three years of converging and sculpting our ideas and sounds we are ready to present our second full length album entitled The Order. Lucifer awaits!”

Tracklisting:

1. Viva Morte
2. The Order
3. Fall Of The Rebel Angels
4. Through Fire We Burn
5. El Dragón
6. Black Heart
7. Haraya
8. Siste Farvel

Album formats:

– Digipack CD
– Black LP
– Transparent Yellow LP
– T-shirt
– Digital

Lucifer’s Child is:
George Emmanuel (Rotting Christ) – guitars
Stathis Ridis (Nightfall) – bass
Marios Dupont (Larma Violens) – vocals
Nick Vell (Chaostar) – drums
