2017 - Black (old), Electronic/Industrial (new) from Switzerland
Hardhats required! With SAMAEL heavy ordnances wallow to darkest fronts. Industrial Black Metal armed with a wind section passes shivery synthesizers. The stomping bass loses its sense of deceny. No grain of dust stays in bed. 30 years of band history flows into their brilliant eleventh record "Hegemony". It combines everything that SAMAEL have learnt in decades the hard way. On point and frightening brutal. Fiery whirlwinds of hypnotic hammering riff forces as well as gruesome-lovely gurgling drives you over the edge. A colourless bouqet from the withered flowers of BEHEMOTH and RAMMSTEIN. Not for the faint-hearted!
