Swiss Black Metal Vortex BORGNE have inked a deal with Those Opposed Records for the release of new album Règne des Morts on September 28, just prior to the band’s appearance at the Black Arts Ceremony Fest in Lyon, France. The album features eight tracks (78 minutes) of crushing, industrial black metal that is superior in terms of songwriting and production to anything previously released. New track “Fear” is streaming here.
