“Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors” by Lukasz Dunaj serves as the definitive BEHEMOTH biography. The book, officially blessed, or rather damned, by BEHEMOTH, is an in-depth look at the history of the events that materially influenced the band. As Dunaj points out in the intro, this isn’t “Poland’s response to MOTLEY CRÜE‘s biography ‘The Dirt’.” Simply put,“Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors” is the story of BEHEMOTH, their music, their ultimate rise to the upper echelon of metal and becoming a household name in their native homeland, Poland.
A 490-page, hardcover tome that is being released by Metal Blade in February, “Behemoth: Devil’s Conquistadors” includes quotes and anecdotes from current and former members that provide context and details in addition to the author’s narrative, plus interviews withTomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal, Havok, and more. The artistically presented pages are splattered with old photos of the band, flyers, lyric sheets, etc.
