Norwegian Black Metal veterans CREST OF DARKNESS have revealed a track from their upcoming ninth full-length album “The God Of Flesh”, which is set for release on My Kingdom Music on the 6th December.

CREST OF DARKNESS founder Ingar Amlien has this to say about the  track, which is titled “The Child With No Head” :

Here we are, yet another chapter written in the book of CREST OF DARKNESS, with a track that is probably one of the most violent and extreme we have ever written during  our career. Turn up the f***ing volume and you’ll be overwhelmed by its sense of loss and total lack of hope.

Although still filled  with CREST OF DARKNESS’  trademark Satanic themes “The God Of Flesh” marks a change to the  feel, variety and depth of the music, showing the band’s lineup of Amlien (CONCEPTION, ROQUEFIRE, AMLIEN’s INFERNO) on Bass and Vocals, Rebo on Rhythm and Lead Guitars, and Berhard (ex- PALE FOREST) on Drums,  to be as much at home with more progressive and melodic elements, as they are  the with the aggressive and dark brutal side, for which they are known.

Amlien recently remarked  that “The God Of Flesh”, which will be the band’s ninth full-length album,  was “probably the darkest and most brutal album we’ve ever made! It’s also the most honest work ever from my perspective

With all lyrics by Amlien and music by Amlien, Rebo and Bernhard, except for the track “Forgotten” where Amlien joins forces with the album’s session keyboardist Kristian Wentzel, and with cover art by  Marius Engli Andersson, track listing for “The God of Flesh” is as follows:

1.The God of Flesh
2. The Child with no Head
3. Endless Night
4. The Spawn of Seth
5. Forgotten
6. Euthanasia
7. Blood
8. Godless Evil Eyes
9. Salvation in Hell

Seeking an outlet for his passion for sonic brutality and his interest in Vampirism and Satanic ideology, on which he is an acknowledged expert, Amlien  formed CREST OF DARKNESS in the mid nineties and considers today’s lineup to be the strongest in the band’s history, as he explains:

During the whole production of the album I was thinking that now, more than ever before, I wanted to make an album my way!  And, as a result, we haven’t made any compromises whatsoever, in any direction.  And I’m very fortunate to be able to say that I was not alone during the whole process. With the help of my fantastic band mates Rebo and Bernhard, it became possible to bring my darkest fantasies and visions to life through “The God of Flesh”

“The God of Flesh” will be available in Digital, Digipak CD, Deluxe CD Box, and Vinyl formats, and is now available to pre-order at

CREST OF DARKNESS will be live at Good Omens in Trondheim, Norway, on the 12th October
