Europe’s diabolical death metal force, Belphegor, will kick off the UK leg of their ‘Conjuring The Dead Raid’ tour next week. The tour is in celebration of their current release ‘Conjuring The Dead‘ – out now via Nuclear Blast.

Mighty front man Helmuth Lehner had to say;
“Hail! It’s great to return to the mighty land of NWOBHM. Always a pleasure to glorify brutal Metal with you demons!
You better not miss this f****** extraordinary, blasphemous Death/Black Metal package!”
“ENGLAND IS GOING TO HELL WITH US ON 7TH DECEMBER 2015!!”

Since the release of Belphegor’s now legendary debut ‘The Last Supper’ in 1995, band founder Helmuth and his henchmen have relentlessly worked their way to the top with their technical proficiency, sophisticated song writing and truly blasphemous lyrics. Having now risen to iconic status in the art of supreme death/black metal, Belphegor continue to strengthen their craft as one of the most extreme line ups to ever come out of that scene.
The band members describing their hellride as ‘Supreme Death/ Black Metal Art‘.
Belphegor released their tenth studio album ‘Conjuring The Dead‘ in August 2014 – it is an opus that sees the band possessed, on fire and ready to conquer. Their ten latest song compositions unleashed a state of brutality that were yet unknown to mankind as soundscapes of a melodic monstrosity; forceful and fierce with razor sharp precision. The record has been described as a straight in-your-face onslaught with devastating string-slaughtering, blazing machine gun drums and the sickest vocals which exceeded even the sickness of any other Belphegor release to date.
