The things you do for love…
Oh yeah, about that DATE.
Heads up, Hungary, the book tour continues to Budapest next week, as I’m coming over for Fekete Zaj Fesztivál! 🤘
You’ll find me roaming around the premises on Saturday (17th of August) like a lost Azathoth. My interview is at 13:00–14:00 and I’ll then continue to sign some books and whatnot at 14:30 onwards. I’ll be packing some merch along, too, so do swing by if you’re interested!
See you soon, looking forward to this! 🙌
¡Hola, Madrid! See you all next Thursday. 🤘 I’m happy to announce that I’ll be over for a meet & greet, to sign some books, have beers and kick off the Belzebubs exhibition at the Cuervo Store. All artwork is also up for grabs, if you wish to pimp your walls, so head on over, bring your friends and come hang out in the Malasaña area.
The event starts at 18.30. Hope to see you there, guys! 🙌
9/10 parents will relate.
And here’s the lyric video for “Nam Gloria Lucifer” as promised. Our official press release states the following:
The uncrowned champions of melodic black metal Belzebubs have unveiled a new infernal anthem from their long-awaited studio album “Pantheon of the Nightside Gods”.
Bassist/vocalist Hubbath comments: “I love it. ‘Nam Gloria Lucifer’ is an unholy alliance of crushing riffs and mesmerizing melodies with a trve tear-jerker ending. It’s beautiful. We needed to settle for a rough lyric video this time around, though, as we’re still recovering from the previous music video shoot—both physically and financially.”
Hope you guys enjoy the track! The album will be released in just two weeks and is available in various formats and bundles. You can check out different options here:https://belzebubs.lnk.to/PantheonOfTheNightsideGodsID
Looking forward to releasing this beast out in the wild soon, we really hope you’ll love the record as much as we do.
Damn you, autocorset. Cornetto. CORRECT!
Anyhow…who’s excited for some new tunes tomorrow? New single and lyric video dropping in 12.00 o'clock (CET)!
And while I’m here, THANK YOU so much for all the support and feedback. We’re overwhelmed by the response “Cathedrals of Mourning” has received, and I’m pleased to say Top Shelf Comix is already taking out a second print run of the English book. 🙌 So thank you.
Anyhow, tune in tomorrow for “Nam Gloria Lucifer”, our last single before the release of “Pantheon of the Nightside Gods” (due in just two weeks!).
Sorry for our absence, we just wrapped up our 2nd music video Cathedrals of Mourning, which has just dropped on Youtube. The flick was shot on location in an old monastery shrouded in the Norwegian mountains overlooking the fjords. A beautiful place, just a shame we’re not exactly welcome back…
The single is also available on streaming services and as a digital download, so check it out from Spotify, iTunes and the likes. Our debut album Pantheon of the Nightside Gods will be out in just four weeks, looking forward to releasing it out in the wild. You can pre-order your copy here: https://Belzebubs.lnk.to/PantheonOfTheNightsideGods
The comics will continue as soon as our documentary crew has recovered from the film shoot. See you in a bit!
”Pantheon of the Nightside Gods” is coming, guys, and the presales are now open! Our long-awaited debut album will be available in a number of options; CD’s, LP’s, digital albums, plus some fancy belzebvndles and special limited editions! We warmly welcome you to check out our official store at backstagerockshop.com/belzebubs. Thanks for your support! You rule!
I TOTALLY forgot to post this here earlier. The Italian version of Belzebubs is coming out early March, and I’m coming over to the book launch at Cartoomics, Milano, with a rather special guest. Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil wrote the afterword for this edition, so we’re teaming up for some comic con madness. Looking forward to this! See you soon!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.
Sorry for our absence, we’ve just been a little tied up filming our second music video! We did, however, have time to chat a bit about our origins, influences, sex and parenting with Kerrang. Hope you enjoy this rather rare band interview, guys.
That’s one way to handle it.
You are cordially invited to join us raise some hell on the 26th of April. Invite your friends, BYOB*. Official press release below:

The heralds of northern darkness BELZEBUBS have confirmed April 26th, 2019 as the release date for “Pantheon of the Nightside Gods”, their long-awaited Century Media studio album. Consisting of nine tracks and a running time of 53 minutes, the upcoming album features a well-matured band that is not afraid to explore hitherto unknown depths.
”We are immensely satisfied with this record”, comments band’s vocalist/guitarist Sløth. ”It’s by far our most versatile work yet. I mean, our trademark death & black metal elements are there, of course—it’s not reggae, for Gaahl’s sake!—but we’ve certainly reached out to new territories here. We’ve always felt a need to focus on our own vision and break genre boundaries, and ”Pantheon“ does just that. There are lush synthscapes, orchestral elements, prog stuff, and some Hendrix and Dimebag vibes in the solos…it’s like skinny dipping in a pool of unspeakable mythic creations, bending time and space!”
Recorded at Hellhole Studios during autumn 2018, ”Pantheon of the Nightside Gods“ also features a fierce roster of guest talent, including the likes of Desibelius, ICS Vortex, Skvllcraft and more. The album was mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swanö, also responsible for the sound of DARK FUNERAL’s ”The Secrets Of The Black Arts”, DISSECTION’s ”The Somberlain” and many others. Check out the first teaser here: https://youtu.be/gkfki8-BtJQ

The mix & mastering phase is done and we’re currently working on the second music video and album art work. More news on that very soon!
We’d also like to thank all of you who’ve supported the comic, here online, by preordering a copy, or buying one from the local book stores, etc. And we definitely salute all thee, who’ve attended the book tour signing events. You rule! We’ll have more dates and venues coming up shortly, and 2019 is shaping up to be another busy year.
So thanks for sticking around and keeping our blackened spirits high. It’s definitely been an interesting year, both fun and stressful at times, yet always rewarding, much thanks to you guys. And for those just tooning in to Belzebubs, welcome to the kvlt. 🤘
