AZAGHAL, Finland’s top-selling black metal act, unleashes an official re-issue of their legendary second album “Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä”. Out of print world-wide for over a decade, the band’s milestone album finally receives a long-overdue re-release, featuring re-vamped layout and liner notes by band founder Narqath. “Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä”, Finish for “Nine Circles of Hell”, was originally released in 1999 and quickly sold through its first several pressings…
One of Finland’s oldest black metal bands with a vast catalog, including 10 full-length albums, countless ep’s and splits, AZAGHAL require no introduction to metal fans world-wide. Performing a more bestial form of black metal in their early years, AZAGHAL’s “Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä” exemplifies this approach, which alongside Impaled Nazarene’s “Tol Cormpt Norz, Norz, Norz” and Horna’s “Kohti Yhdeksän Nousua”, cemented the corner-stone of the now hugely popular and infamous Finish black metal sound.
17 years after its original release “Helvetin Yhdeksän Piiriä” is as ground breaking and relevant today as it was upon its initial release.
