Not long after releasing their 2008 album, The Black Curse, Swedish black-metallers, Lord Belial, called it quits. They cited the main reason for the split was a hearing problem their drummer developed as a result of playing in the band. Despite all this, it looks like Lord Belial is back working on new material.
According to a blog the band posted they have resumed activities and has even inked a deal with
U.K.’s Sweden's (thanks, Anders) Dozer Records. Writing and recording has already begun on a new record, expected to drop sometime next year. All reports so far indicate that their previous drummer will, despite his previous medical problems, be returning with the rest of the pack.
