After over five years since their last album, the band has now revealed the first glimpse at their upcoming effort, titled "Bab Al On", and due for release in December.

Later today, Norwegian Black Metal veterans Norway Dødsengel will be premiering one of the tracks from their upcoming fourth studio album, "Bab Al On". The album will be released via Debemur Morti Productions on the 16th of December. The track in question is titled "Ad Babalonis Amorem Do Dedico Omnia Nihilo", and goes live in a few hours:

 


The label touched on the elements and themes of the album:

15 years since formation the inimitable cult of Norway's DØDSENGEL ('angel of death') has grown exponentially, reaching its apex on 5th full-length "Bab Al On", a devotional work of idiosyncratic spiritual Black Metal.

Simultaneously more wild and more exacting, more accessible and more obscure than anything the band has previously released, "Bab Al On" is a hypnotic melting pot, a deep trip into the minutiae of Occultism which requires immersive listening to navigate.

Blessed by a production job of crystalline excellence, the album interweaves the raw, corrupted melodies, rhythms and dynamics of formative Black Metal with dramatic, ritualistic passages of plainsong, psychedelic sound design and delicate acoustics, all capped by an astonishing tour-de-force vocal performance from a twisted seer.


The band's drummer, Malach Adonai, elaborated on this:

She is the Gate of Manifestation. Mother and Whore to All. From which we came and unto which we will return…she is associated with incarnation, with flesh and physicality, as well as the highest spiritual aspirations. She is also Babalon the Great, the Harlot of Revelations, who rides upon the Beast in the visions of John, and whom John Dee and Edward Kelly saw in their enochian workings…


Stay tuned for more info. Pre-orders will start on October 7th.
