UK black metallers Sacred Son will be returning this year with a new album.
The Foul Deth of Engelond, a black metal chronicle of the 1381 Peasants’ Revolt, will be released on May 13.
Sacred Son’s fourth full-length was recorded in 2020 by Chris Fullard (Ulver, Sunn O)))), Boris) at the analogue-focused Holy Mountain Studios in London.
The sessions were then mixed by Randall Dunn (Wolves in the Throne Room, Earth, Kayo Dot) at his Circular Ruin studio in New York.
Ahead of the release of The Foul Deth of Engelond, Sacred Son have shared their first single from the album, Le Blakheth.
Principal songwriter, Dane Cross, who founded Sacred Son in 2017, said: “Le Blakheth is the third track from Sacred Son’s new album The Foul Deth of Engelond.
“It chronicles the bloodiest and most violent chapter of the 1381 Great Rising; when corrupt and sycophantic ruling figures were beaten and beheaded whilst their obscenely lavish buildings burned around them.”
Sacred Son caused a major stir in the black metal community when they emerged: the cover of their self-titled debut features a picture of Cross happily smiling while on holiday!
