In what can only be described as a natural progression of one of the most highly regarded melodic death metal albums of the decade in Stone's Reach, Be'lakor have taken to the studio once more with the hopes of building on their already unrelenting momentum.

There's actually a chance it will slip to 2012, but late 2011 is still much likely (Source: recent Metal Obsession interview)

The last album had some magic moments. it's difficult for them to create a "10" for my tastes but they are always in for a strong "9"...!

Won't even be November, it'll be released in 2012. Waiting for a more formal source for it than random Facebook commenting.

The band plans on recording the thing in January. Me and probably them as well are hoping for a March/April release.

Preordered limited edition digipack. Ohhh yeaaahh!

UPDATE/REVIEW:
So I got the album, after 1 play through I thought it was good but now after several... Holy shit! Fucking sensational! Tit-rubbingly good. It's ridiculously melodic, so much so that you get the sensation that your melting. The vocals are just roaring exceptional and leave you shaking your head in awe on many occasions. The keyboards and the bass guitar have more of the spotlight this time further adding to the moistness in your pants. I could go on, but just GET IT, give it a go in a dark room with your eyes closed as so you can devote 100% of your sensory functions to your ears. Try not to melt.

9.5/10
