Experimental black metallers The Meads Of Asphodel have some news for us today. The band just announced that the new album Sonderkommando will be mastered in the next 48 hours by long serving producer Iain Smith and completed. They were also kind enough to reveal some of its details. You can see the tracklist and cover art (from artist Aisha Louisa Al-Sadie) below.

The album should be available in early/mid February. Also, keep a look out for the promotional video "A Glimpse Into The Sonderkommando", a mini documentary that will be uploaded next week.

According to the band, the album clocks at 70+ minutes and it will be their darkest and most epic journey to date. The LP will feature the debut full-length performance from André Kjelbergvik Thung as well as the usual array of guests, whom are: Christina Poupoutsi (Ebonillumini & The Higher Craft), Mories (Gnaw Their Tongues), Rob Miller (Amebix), Oristalla (Diversis), Alan Davey (Gunslinger), Mirai (Sigh), Will Banyard, JM (Wolves Of Avalon), Gods Tower, Bruce Hamilton, Malcolm Tait and Harry 'Son of Metatron'.

Will probably be the highlight of the year along with !T.O.O.H.!'s new one.

Unsure about that cover artwork. The Meads have never had great artwork though to be honest. This one is interesting if nothing else.

And I see Mories will be on it too. 'ckin' awesome.

From their other albums:

"A canticle for the lost amputees of Aelia Capitolina who have been trampled under the iron shod hooves of salivating hell rams and impaled on the shimmering tusks of salvation within the abandoned tabernacle of a Bronze Age myth."

"Behold the Kindred Battle Carcasses Strewn Across the Bloodied Dunes of Gilgamesh Mute in the Frenzied Clamour of Death's Rolling Tongue and Ravenous Bursting Steel."

"On Graven Images I Glide Beyond the Monstrous Gates of Pandemonium to Face the Baptized Warriors of Yahweh in the Skull Littered Plain of Esdraelon."

"Falling with Lightning Rays Beamed through the Blazing Firmament Towards the Untented Burial Ground of Kharsag."



Their sentences seem to be getting longer.

They should have add another track named

13. Lamentation of contorted ladies.

Interesting artwork. It seems this album is history/religion related too.
The 11th track describes it all... and wow! They've got so many guests musicians there.

One of my most anticipated albums of the year.

I actually like the artwork for Damascus Steel and for the latest one. Don't like this one though.


...and fuck yeah for Mories. Such colaboration can only give great results.

Well I don't know the band. But I would say about that artwork aside from the goofy looking logo it's cool and better than a lot of the computer generate-y looking junk.

I would agree with that for sure. The colours are nice and you can tell it's an actual painting. Their logo does indeed rather suck. I've always thought that.
