Legendariska Hell som återförenades 2011 släpper sitt nya album Curse And Chapter den 22 november via Nuclear Blast. Albumet följer upp Human Remains från 2011 och kommer innehålla en bonus-DVD bestående av sex stycken låtar från deras spelning på Darwin Suite Assembly Rooms i Derby, England.
Albumets första singel The Age Of Nefarious släpps under hösten.
Bandets gitarrist Andy Sneap kommenterar, ”We’ve been working solid on the album for the last couple of months between gigs, although we’ve been demoing to a good standard over the last year or so.
”This time around the album consists of around 50% old material, 50% new.
”We really see this as a band that’s moving forward rather than a nostalgia trip. Obviously, there’s a lot of history within the band, but there’s also a whole world of ideas we want to get out.
”We have this week left tracking. Four more vocals and bass to get down, two more songs of guitar and then mix. ”I’m super happy with how things are shaping up. It feels more like a band on this record to me than the first, which, I guess, is just a natural progression of everyone playing together a lot more over the last couple of years.”
Sångaren David Bower tillägger, ”Alongside some of our favorite themes of historical, political and religious persecution, intolerance and prejudice, you will find some good old fashioned myths and legends being invoked and reinterpreted in our own inimitable way. We also have some songs in which the listener will be implicitly invited to solve the clues contained in the lyrics in order to find the meaning of the stories for themselves. Being completely aware that many people interpret things in ways that writers do not expect as a matter of course, it seemed logical to take that idea a little further.”
