Swiss industrial black metallers SAMAEL have set "Lux Mundi" (which translates as "Light of the World") as title of their forthcoming album, due in the spring via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD, which took almost three years to be completed, was recorded this past summer after the band spent a few days in pre-production in Germany with with longtime collaborator Waldemar Sorychta (MOONSPELL, LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT, GRIP INC.). The actual recordings took place in two different locations in Switzerland and the mix was handled by extreme metal specialist Russ Russell in Kettering, England. "Lux Mundi" will consist of 10 to 12 new songs, including first single "Antigod" and live monster "Soul Invictus" (roughly translates in English as Invincible Soul), which is a word play with the Sol Invictus used by the Romans. The song was played during the latest European tour and it soon turned out to be one of the highlights of the set, becoming a crowd anthem on the spot.
Don't miss Mas Misein's thundering Ravelle Bass on this album and also on Tour in 2011.
