BEHEMOTH Working With Producer Ross Robinson: A Match Made In Heaven Or Hell?
It has been reported that Poland's finest Heavy Metal export BEHEMOTH have lined up multifaceted producer Ross Robinson to work on the bands 10th studio album. While we can't fully confirm this piece of news yet, both the band and Robinson have been hinting that they will indeed be working together (see below).
While some of you may think this is a match made in hell, since Robinson is the man to blame for the NuMetal movement, and you fear that Robinson will make BEHEMOTH sound too commercial. We think it is a heavenly move from the BEHEMOTH camp to line up Robinson as their producer. It is also very exciting! And while you may think that Robinson got "lost" after being one of the top Heavy Music producers in the 90s, he has been constantly working on many types of musical projects within various realms. But what can he bring out of BEHEMOTH?
In our humble opinion, if there is a man that can take BEHEMOTH to the next level when it comes to the sonic assault that they are famous for, that man is Ross Robinson. In times in which music production has become too perfect, no matter what Heavy Music sub-genre you look at, there is a need for a producer that is not afraid to try NEW things. A producer who won't be scared to revolutionize our music once again by using unorthodox and imperfect methods of productions. And who better than BEHEMOTH to grab the Heavy Music monster by the horns and take it to the next level?
But what ignited this rumor? Well, BEHEMOTH's Nergal recently shared this photo of himself and band bassist/vocalist Orion meeting with Robinson.
Meanwhile, Robinson Tweeted this on November 30th:
“2013 is becoming the most ripping metal year of my life- thrash/black/death/postHC lined up- #nobubblebathmusic!”
Other recent tweets seemingly related to the potential pairing include:
“Leaving Warsaw. Exploring the depth of fire and its vulnerability.”
“”Semantic punk” & “Behemoth” Warsaw’s perfect answer to getting it the fk on.. High level dudes “
In other Behemoth news, the band has just boarded the Barge To Hell cruise! For more information, the entire line up, and to book a room, visit http://www.bargetohell.com.
