Samael is a band I’ve been extremely lazy about. I’ve heard the name in numerous places regarding highly, including here at Heavy Blog, where our own Dormition praised them. Well, I still haven’t checked out their latest effort, Lux Mundi, but decided that watching the video for their track “Luxferre” would be good for me. I proceeded, and not knowing what to expect, was throughly impressed. Their blend of industrial, black, and symphonic concepts is well conducted, and convinced me to download the album. I was thoroughly blown away. You can watch this below. For some reason the last few seconds were cut, and I’m not sure if this is YouTube’s fault or Nuclear Blast’s, but you get most of the song regardless.
Lux Mundi is out now on Nuclear Blast. Get it.
