BiografieThroughout the ‘90s S A M A E L released five albums and a couple of side releases. "Ceremony Of Opposites" (1994), “Passage” (1996) and “Eternal” (1999) are regarded by many as metal milestones of the last decade. They're all, indeed, representative of the constant evolution and mutation of the band.

After different experimentations, S A M A E L returned in 2004 with "Reign Of Light", an album which clearly shows the band’s desire to continue being on the frontline of modern heavy metal music. The release was followed by over 80 shows in Europe alone, including many festival appearances.

Early 2006 the band started working on their new album. The recording sessions began in mid-summer of the same year and became the longest in S A M A E L's history. "Solar Soul" was mixed during January 2007 in Stockholm (Sweden), mastered in March and unleashed on the 1st of June. This is without a doubt the beginning of a new era for the band, and their new album is built to stand the test of time...

November 2008: while putting the last touch on "Above", a project they matured for sometimes, the band decided it will be S A M A E L's new album. Presented as a tribute to the band early years and first influences, "Above" is released on the 6th of March 2009.Quelle: - Lux Mundi

Haben die Songs des aktuellen SAMAEL Albums "Lux Mundi" Hitpotential? Und wenn ja, dann eher die Single "Antigod", der Fanfavorit "In The Deep" oder der Geheimtipp "Soul Invictus"?

Mit "Reign Of Light" haben SAMAEL erneut einen Haken geschlagen - dessen Verlauf auf jeden Fall so nicht vorhersehbar war. Fünf Jahre lang gab es keine Veröffentlichung, die Tonexperimente, die dazwischen lagen, bekamen nur Eingeweihte zu hören.

With their most recent release "Reign Of Light" SAMAEL did once more an surprising turn - surprising but not unsuspected. No record releases for five years since their last one "Eternal" from 1999. But there was no lack of creativity, the experimental recordings in between never saw the light of day due to business circumstances.

Auch wenn es sicher viele Fans der Schweizer anders sehen werden: spätestens seit dem 2007er Werk "Solar Soul" hat bei den einstigen Düsterpionieren endgültig der Streichelzoo Einzug gehalten.

Neuerdings machen die Schweizer SAMAEL fast in Pop, die Maxi "On Earth" unterstreicht das. Tanzbar ist er der Song, die Jungs singen auch davon dass sie tanzen konnten bevor sie das reden lernten.

Es gibt Leute, die SAMAEL durchaus generös den Status von Musikgenies zusprechen. Vor "Reign Of Light" sah ich das ähnlich, sie waren vielen stets einen Schritt voraus.

Mitte/Ende der 90er waren SAMAEL das ganz große Ding in Sachen innovativer Dunkelstahlkunst.
