According to a release, the upcoming "sinister masterpiece" will feature nine new tracks "laced with obscure magick and full of furious brutality." Founding guitarist Helmuth Lehner said of the release:

It is the most brutally heavy offering we have consecrated thus far. The drums are precise and very technical with loads of breaks, fills and tempo changes. The bass is like a panzer tank. Also, the rhythm guitars are completed; utterly aggressive and obscure. You don't hear guitars like that anywhere with such a massively low tuning.

I'm really proud of all we have tracked so far and created for the new audial hellspawn. An honor — this horror!!

According to the same release, Belphegoris hitting the road immediately following the release of Totenritual for a worldwide touring cycle, although no dates were included with the copy.

A clip of the black metal outfit playing "Totenkvlt – Exegesis Of Deterioration," recorded live inside their rehearsal bunker, can be viewed below:
