SAMAEL Release “Black Supremacy” Performance Video
September 15, 2017, a year ago
Swiss black metal pioneers, Samael, have released a performance video for “Black Supremacy”, a track from their upcoming album, Hegemony.
The band explains: "We wanted to pay homage to our favorite color with a song. Black isn't considered to be a color but in its purest essence it is an absolute value. Musically this track tends to be more extreme than the rest of the album but it couldn't be otherwise!"
Hegemony is not only an exceptional addition to the Samael discography alongside albums such as Passage and Eternal the album will also mark the band's 30th anniversary.
The band states: "The creative process that leads to the completion of Hegemony took over four years. Throughout that time we lived with and saw each song growing into what they finally became. Hegemony is an album that acknowledges the world we're living in, and emphasized on the effort to take control of that world. It's all about change and evolution. It's a strong statement, a testament of our time and a call for revolution."
Founded in 1987 as an old school black metal act that was influenced by the likes of Bathory, fellow countrymen Celtic Frost, and Venom, the brothers Vorph and Xy later developed the band's style further, leaning toward a more industrial dark metal sound. Hegemony will be released on October 13th via Napalm Records. Find the full album tracklisting and cover artwork below:
