Since their debut, The Frail Tide in 2007, Australian Progressive Death Metal powerhouse Be’Lakor has made a huge impact on the international metal scene, turning heads with their technical-driven yet melodic songwriting. Now, almost 15 years later, the legendary five-piece returns with their new album “Coherence” (out October 29 via Napalm Records), proving themselves to be on top of their game with their most ambitious project yet! Eight tracks on Coherence display Be’Lakor’s impressive spectrum of musical abilities, ranging from 12-minute-long journeys on “Much More Was Lost” to the atmospheric, fully instrumental “Sweep of Days”. Coherence is full of details that reveal more and more with every listen of the album: Be’Lakor are not afraid to focus on extensive, cohesive songwriting while still managing to keep the listener on their toes. Thanks to the marvelous, larger-than-life mix by none other than Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Dimmu Borgir, At The Gates among others), Be’Lakor are as bold and majestic as ever on “Coherence.”

Steve Merry (piano/synths) from Be’lakor about Coherence: “We’re excited to share this album after five years of quite intense work on it. It’s pushed us in many ways. Coherence has two of our longest ever songs; it has some really substantial instrumental tracks; it’s heavy and progressive in places, but still full of the melody that drives our work. The album’s lyrics also explore quite different ideas to those of our earlier albums. We look forward to working with Napalm Records on this release and sharing this music with our fans!”
