Legendary black metal act, Sacrilegium, have revealed the artwork of their upcoming full-length, Anima Lucifera. The author of the artwork, and the whole graphic design of the album, is Marcin Łojek (Thaw, Sunrise, Nadja).
Anima Lucifera is the second full-length of the band, recorded almost 20 years after the release of their influential debut, Wicher. The album title refers directly to a line from a poem by Leopold Staff; excerpts of which have been used in the new Sacrilegium tracks. Similarly, the works of W. B. Yeats and Fernando Pessoaappear next to Nantur‘s original lyrics.
Anima Lucifera was recorded in the autumn of 2015 at the Pomeranian North Studio. Mixing and mastering duties were undertaken by Nihil (Furia, Morowe, Massemord) at Czyściec Studio (www.czysciec.net).
The recording line-up:
S – Guitars
N – Vocals

Anima Lucifera will be available on 18 March 2016 via Pagan Records as a digipak CD, digital or gatefold LP.
