The album will be available as:

  • CD jewelcase (12-page booklet)
  • CD digipack (12-page booklet, limited to first run)

Critical Praise:

I will forever embrace quality underground Metal, especially underground Black Metal. Helleborus have without question, tapped into my Black Metal psyche with their new song. I honestly cannot stop listening to Coils.” – Metal Odyssey

“The chiming riffs and exotic lead guitar melodies in “Coils” do indeed generate an air of mysticism that surrounds the song, but the music also rocks very hard. The thundering drums and rumbling bass rhythms give the song a sense of tangible power, and the jagged, howling vocals cut like a serrated knife. It’s a bulldozer as well as a spellcaster…the song is also catchy as hell, and it should hold special appeal to fans of bands such as The Devil’s Blood, Satyricon, and Belphegor.” – No Clean Singing

FURIA And BLOODTHIRST To Tour Poland With SAMAEL

Posted in Black Metal, Metal, Music, rock music with tags , , , , on June 12, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Samael - Furia - Bloodthirst - promo tour flyer - Poland - 2015 - November

The legendary Swiss act Samael will visit Poland on four dates this November. The band will be celebrating their cult album Ceremony of Opposites (1994) by performing it in its entirety. Support on these dates will come from two Pagan Records bands that have already performed together plenty: Furia and Bloodthirst. Dates and ticket info below.

To the black metal connoisseur, Furia should not need an introduction. They are one of the most important bands to come out of the Polish underground in the last ten years and their latest release, Nocel, has received overwhelming praise with No Clean Singing calling it “a fascinating album that won’t grow old quickly” while Zero Tolerance Magazine named it “an eccentric BM album with something for everyone”.

Check out Nocel via Bandcamp: https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album/nocel

Calling themselves “hateful antichristian thrash”, Bloodthirst deliver just that and some more: their thrash consists of angry and brutal black metal with a few drops of that old-school Swedish death metal which we all love. With three full-lengths under their belts, the band has become an important name in the Polish underground. Their latest release is Chalice of Contempt (2014) and should be tasty for fans of Aura Noir, Desaster and Destroyer 666.

Check out Chalice of Contempt via Bandcamp: https://paganrecords.bandcamp.com/album/chalice-of-contempt

SAMAEL + FURIA + BLOODTHIRST
26.11 Cracow, Poland: Fabryka
27.11 Wrocław, Poland: Alibi
28. 11 Warsaw, Poland: Progresja
29. 11 Gdańsk, Poland: B-90

Tickets for the Cracow, Wrocław and Warsaw shows can be bought via the Knock Out Productions webshop and tickets for the Gdańsk show may be purchased via the B-90 website.

Stay up-to-date with Pagan Records via Facebook and the label’s official website. Listen to the label’s roster via Bandcamp.
