Samael have set "Above" as the title of their upcoming album due to be release in winter 2009.

This is what vocalist/guitarist Vorph says about the record: "After 20 years we've tried to do an album that would represent what Samael is all about and we did "Solar Soul". We feel now it is the right time to remember the people where we come from and that's exactly what "Above" will do. It is like an enhanced version of our three or four first albums, maybe the missing link between "Cermony Of Opposites" and "Passage". With the "Era One" project we've tried to work on different influences, with "Above" we stripped everything down. It is a metal album through and through."

Sounds promising... looking forward!

Winter 2009. Does that mean January/February/March 2009 or December 2009?

I don't know if you heard the two tracks on the "Above" myspace page while they were there since a few months ago (they're gone now), but they were more metal than anything Samael have done since Ceremony of Opposites, in my opinion.

I've seen them live but I've never actually heard a recording... strange.

Sound cool, the song of Above was fucking cool

I thought they started above as a "digital" side band or something.

I hope they continue the Solar Soul way.. That album was great.

It was - they were calling it a "virtual band", but have now decided to change it from a side project to being the new Samael album.

I love their older stuff and I like Solar Soul as well.
I hope they don't turn into an experimental industrial band.
