BEHEMOTH Release Studio Update & Announce Mayhem Fest Off Dates!
Polish Extreme Metallers BEHEMOTH are currently locked up at Hertz studio in Bialystok, Poland laying down some dangerous tracks for their 10th studio album. The NEW BEHEMOTH record is scheduled to be released later this year 2013 via Nuclear Blast in Europe and Metal Blade Records in North America.
While we wait patiently for NEW music to be completed, Nergal has offered the following update: "Every piece of art is born in pain… and so is ours. We've spent last couple of months on pre-production and tracking down the songs in Hertz studio. We are producing the album collectively with help of Wieslawscy brothers and Daniel Bergstrand. We are driven by a mystery… exploring territories that have been unknown to us up until now. It feels exciting and very refreshing to redefine our style and yet make a strong fuckin' statement. Wait and hear…"
As previously announced, BEHEMOTH will be embarking on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer (tickets and info on rockstarmayhemfest.com). In addition to the festival dates, two off dates have been announced, including July 9th in Grand Rapids, MI and July 29th in Louisville, KY. Fans at each show will be treated a mini-fest of sorts, with each show including Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, Job for a Cowboy, Battlecross, and more.
As the band continues to record, they have been posting images and what appear to be lyrics for portions of NEW songs.
More updates will be posted as they are made available. Fans can stay up to date with the absolute latest at facebook.com/behemoth and twitter.com/behemothband.
