Greek black/thrash band Principality of Hell will release their debut full length Fire & Brimstone on August 18th via W.T.C. Productions. The band has premiered the track “Codex Inferno” at, and it is now available to stream below. The group channels the old-school black/thrash metal sound, and based on “Codex Inferno” it sounds like they’re capable of doing the older black metal and European thrash sound justice. Principality of Hell will include two covers on their debut, one of Exodus’ “Strike of the Beast” and another of Slayer’s “Tormentor” on an upcoming vinyl release. Check out additional details below.

Today, blackthrashing Greek cult PRINCIPALITY OF HELL premiere the new track “Codex Inferno” at heavily trafficked web-portal The song hails from the band’s forthcoming debut album, Fire & Brimstone, set for international release on August 18th via W.T.C. PRODUCTIONS. Burning with power from Hell and emitting sacrilegious smoke, Fire & Brimstone is an album that has one – and ONLY one – aim: to revive the old black/thrash spirit of the early/mid ’80s, when legends like Venom, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Sodom, and Voivod stalked the earth. On paper, it sounds like an idea that’s been wrung dry, but it’s an idea that takes on especial gravitas coming from black metal scene veterans – namely Greece’s legendary The Magus, who’s wielded wide influence upon the black metal scene since the early ’90s with Necromantia and Thou Art Lord. Joining him in PRINCIPALITY OF HELL are fellow conspirators El (Soulskinner, Thou Art Lord) and J. Maelstrom (Ravencult, Thou Art Lord), and together they create a rowdy, galloping ride through blackthrash’s darkest past. And yet, each song (including a classic early Exodus cover on the CD version, and a cover of Slayer’s “Tormentor” on the vinyl version) remains varied from the next, with each deadly strike lodging immediately within the cranium. With Fire & Brimstone, expect no more or no less: PURE FUCKING BLACK METAL the old-school way! Hear for yourself exclusively HERE. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
