SAMAEL – New Music Video Released

SAMAEL has unleashed a new music video for the track “Black Supremacy”. The group’s new album “Hegemony” will hit stores on October 13th via Napalm Records. Check it out HERE.

S A M A E L existed long before brothers Vorphalack and Xytraguptor began turning gears in a bunker on the 14th of July 1988 – but that was the day it awoke. While practicing daily during that summer, the duet had one thing in mind: conquer the world.

The first small step toward that goal was the recording of their self-financed EP Medieval Prophecy in October ’88. The following year they wrote more songs and played shows in Germany, France, Switzerland and Poland, before taking the decisive step to record an album. On their way to rehearsal on the 12th of December 1989, the brothers stopped by bassist Masmiseîm’s place to talk him into joining S A M A E L . He accepted on the spot but remained with his former band Alastis for a few months.

The trio booked a studio for March 1990, and by April 1991, debut album Worship Him became the first release on newly-formed French label Osmose Productions. With this incisive step, S A M A E L began its invasion of the worldwide underground. A crucial series of concerts culminated with two monumental shows in Moscow. The following year the band signed a multi-album deal with fast growing label Century Media. By autumn 1992, Xytraguptor, Masmiseîm and Vorphalack were in studio, working for the first time with producer Waldemar Sorychta. From that recording session emerged Blood Ritual, 11 tracks of occult dark metal. Following its release, the band set out on its first European tour with label mates Unleashed and Tiamat. Later shows included the band’s first appearance at German festivals Wacken Open Air and Popkomm.
