BEHEMOTH Frontman Says New Album Is ‘Spectacular’
Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH have completed mixing their tenth full-length album, "The Satanist", for a fall release via Nuclear Blast in Europe and Metal Blade in North America. The CD was recorded at Hertzstudio in Bialystok, Poland with the help of the Wieslawscy brothers andDaniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES, SOILWORK, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD). Songtitles set to appear on the effort include "Blow Your Trumpet, Gabriel" — described by Darski as "killer" and "a monster";"Messe Noir" (French for "The Black Mass"); and "Ora Pro Nobis, Lucifer" (Latin for "Pray For Us, Lucifer"). Comments BEHEMOTH guitarist/vocalist Adam "Nergal" Darski: "I'm listening to the new mix of the album... and it's SPECTACULAR. If you can imagine something that beats the shit out of 'Evangelion', this is it! "We shall take another six months before we put it out... Sorry, but that's what it needs. Be patient. This album will shake the Mount Sinai!" In a recent interview with Revolver magazine, Darski describedBEHEMOTH's new songs as "very atmospheric" and "very emotional." "Think BURZUM meets NEW ORDER meets KILLING JOKE," he added. But at the same time, fans shouldn't expect the album to sound too far removed from BEHEMOTH's past efforts. "Take SLAYER, for example,"Darski said. "Whatever genre they deal with, they still end up sounding like SLAYER. Even when they were flirting with nu-metal, it was aSLAYER record. Same with BEHEMOTH."
