Finnish black metallers Baptism have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, V: The Devil’s Fire, at Terrorizer. Titled “Buried with Him”, the new seven-minute stormer conjures hellacious tremolo-picked madness and icy, somber melodies. Frontman Lord S commented on the new song:
“The track ‘Buried With Him’ reveals a part of the spirituality of BAPTISM, our journey through the trials and conquests of this thing called ‘Life’, which is as much relating to ‘Death’ at the same time. Like much of the philosophy behind BAPTISM, it represents the Gnostic side of Satanism, the one holding the values of our true self. We all are buried along with the Master, the Light-Bringer, who dwells deep within man. This song features my old brother Antti Boman from the legendary DEMILICH and the lyrics have penned by our longtime spiritual-member Johannes Nefastos.”
Check out the track after the jump.
V: The Devil’s Fire will be released on July 22 via Season of Mist.
