Belphegor - Walpurgis Rites: Hexenwahn (Nuclear Blast/Riot)

Blackened death metal with more black than death hits you square in the jaw as Helmuth and his trio of Salzburg sinners recant the flesh-ripping Rites. Just remember to wear your ear-plugs.

Belphegor is probably a prime example of what I call "deathened black metal", the black metal sounding streaked with death metal rather than the other way around.

A Crusade into the Macabre - Helmuth of Belphegor

Helmuth, founding guitarist of blackened death metal act Belphegor, is a man who knows what he wants. Hot from the release of Walpurgis Rites - Hexenwahn, he chats to Metal as Fuck about the intense production, and his upcoming plans.
