After taking a six-year break, the Swiss industrial black metal pioneers SAMAEL are back with a dark and majestic monolith, that will crush you in an instant!
Fans were already given a taste of what to expect from the new album, with the singles “Angel of Wrath”, “Red Planet”, and “Black Supremacy”. But now it’s getting really serious… 30 years of constant evolution flow into the massive title track of their highly awaited album! We proudly present you SAMAEL’s “Hegemony!” courtesy of Loudwire.
The band comments:
“This is our grand overture… We choose to open the album with this song because we thought it sets the tone; square rhythm, martial beat, massive guitar riffs, intricate keyboards arrangements, powerful orchestration all that meshed with aggressive and relentless vocal lines… This is our Hegemony… enjoy!”
