Samael – “Angel of Wrath” (Video Premiere)


Swiss black metal OG’s Samael have been hinting at a promising third act in their career for some time. After a decade of glorified industrial records (not a bad thing in my book, but certainly not to the tastes of many of their old fans) the outfit’s made a name for themselves as festival headliners performing their classic Ceremony of Opposites album.

This year, the band returns with a more metallic new record, Hegemony, and today release its first single, “Angel of Wrath”. The drum machine still pummels at the heart of their music, but some of the pleather pants feel of their recent output has been scrubbed away in favor of melodrama evoking Rotting Christ or Septicflesh, if not Dimmu Borgir. This kind of metal excellence exists in direct proportion to its grandiosity. The bigger it sounds, the better it is. “Angel of Wrath” sounds humongous.
