Seven psalms of uncompromising Satanik supplication. That is how the press release accompanying In Nomine Odium describes the long-awaited new album from French black metallers Haemoth.
Well...here's hoping Old Split-Foot is prepared for a cacophonous cauldron of churning fuzz, pitch-black ambience, and way-more-than-two-minutes-hate. Hoo boy. Stellar stuff, but not exactly easy listening -- check out the premiere of the ripper "Slaying the Blind" below to confirm.

For the record, the rest of In Nomine Odium kills, too. Plenty of pummeling, naturally, but also many intriguing digressions and sharp left turns.
As a bonus, here is the band's novel official bio:
HAEMOTH supports all that can contribute to the ruin of the human being - every form of vice - and doesn't give a fuck what means is used to achieve this.
All forms of depravity, destruction and hate must be preached.
HAEMOTH encourages every act, physical or spiritual, which can contribute to decline, blasphemy or pain.
To become one with Him, inner death is inevitable.
The weak ones don't have their place here. May they burn in Hell ...
