April 5, 2007
Osmose USA/The End Records have set the release date of June 26th, 2007 for the highly-anticipated new album from Angelcorpse titled ‘Of Lucifer and Lightning'.

Angelcorpse is pleased to be unleashed once again with our new album ‘Of Lucifer and Lightning'. We can promise unrelenting savagery, stark discipline and total warfare.

Angelcorpse formed in early 1995 after Pete Helmkamp's first band Order From Chaos split. Gene Palubicki and Helmkamp joined forces, began writing material, and after acquiring Longstreth in early 96, recorded the "Goats To Azazael" demo. Within two weeks the band signed to Osmose Productions (France) and began writing material that would become their debut CD "Hammer of Gods" release later that year in conjuction with a European tour in support of Impaled Nazarene (that featured Bill Taylor on guitar). The "Nuclear Hell" live EP and "Wolflust" were recorded during the next year, and material was written for the second full length album "Exterminate", recorded in late 97. In early 98 Tony Laureano replaced Longstreth on drums. This year would prove to be a busy one for the band. In the spring, Angelcorpse played The No Mercy Festivals in Europe, and then a full European tour in support of Immortal. That summer, a grueling 9 week US tour in support of Cannibal Corpse allowed the band to properly assualt their home ground. In early winter of 99, Angelcorpse again hit the road alongside Incantation and Krisiun for a second tour of the States. Meanwhile, various cover tracks were recorded over the course of the summer, as well as the fine tuning off material for the third album "The Inexorable". A split EP with Martire was also recorded at this time. "The Inexorable" was released in mid 99 and this time Angelcorpse had proper distribution in the US with Olympic Recordings. A major European tour in support of Marduk, as well as some large festival shows finished up the year, and a US tour was embarked upon in spring 00 alongside Satyricon, Immortal and Krisiun. This was to be the band's last. After a van accident one week into the tour, Helmkamp badly injured his left foot and ankle, but vowed to continue. Angelcorpse only had to cancel one show. However, two weeks later other pressing personal reasons forced Helmkamp off the road for good. Alex Camargo stepped in on vocal duties for the remaining week of shows, and upon everyone returning back home, Helmkamp quit the band. Although having been given the choice to continue without him, Angelcorpse opted to split. Seven years later .. Helmkamp and Palubicki have been hard at work on material for nearly two years now, and after enlisting the services of original drummer Longstreth, recorded the fourth full length album "Of Lucifer and Lightning".
