Hell announce new EP; The Age of Nefarious

British occult metal legends Hell who saw a revival a few years ago have finally unveiled details about the lead single to be released from their upcoming album Curse And Chapter. the band’s current incarnation which features Andy Sneap and David Bower alongside original members Kev BowerTony Speakman and Tim Bowler will release their follow-up to the 2011 release Human Remains on 25th November, later this year through Nuclear Blast.

The Age of Nefarious EP will be released on 28th October via Nuclear Blast. It will be released as as a 10″ vinyl, in several different colours and one exclusive colour for the UK. The EP will include the title track, The Age Of Nefarious, plus three live tracks from the band’s recent performance at this year’s Bloodstock Festival.

The tracklist of The Age Of Nefarious reads as follows:

Side A:
1. The Age Of Nefarious
2. On Earth As It Is In Hell (live)
Side B:
1. Blasphemy And The Master (live)
2. The Oppressors (live)

String and keyman Kev Bower commented:

In a world dominated by conflict, disease, corruption, poverty, disaster and crime – much of which has religion at its source – this is truly the dawning of The Age Of Nefarious. The song was always going to be the perfect opener for the new Curse And Chapter album since it lays the foundation for everything which follows, but when we were approached by our friends at Nuclear Blast with the idea of producing a lead-off EP, we also decided that out of four possible EP album track candidates – this song should also be the one. It represents everything which Hell represents – it powers along in awe-inspiring majesty, but takes lots of unexpected twists and turns before reaching its inevitable conclusion. The artwork is once again the result of our collaboration with Dan Goldsworthy, and it shows just a tiny fraction of the artwork he has created for Curse And Chapter. With regard to the additional live tracks – where better to have recorded these than from the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 – the spiritual home of UK metal, during one of the best shows we have ever played, and in front of 10,000 of the most dedicated metal heads in the world. We are proud to be giving you a glimpse into the second Chapter……

Hell will also be touring with their label mates Carcass this coming November as well as Amon Amarth on the Metal Hammer: Defenders Of The Faith tour. Tour dates are as follow:

12.11.13      Birmingham – Academy
13.11.13      Manchester – Academy
14.11.13      Glasgow – Barrowlands
