Well, they always say to keep it simple, stupid. Polish headbangers Behemoth have never been ones for subtlety, but now they’ve just gone for it: their new album is called The Satanist. The record, their tenth full-length, is due in the fall via Nuclear Blast in Europe and Metal Blade in North America. The band has been holed up in Hertz studio in Poland with the Wieslawscy brothers and Daniel Bergstrand. The band has been sporadically releasing recording updates and lyrics on their Facebook, so check that out if you’re interested.
Guitarist and vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski had this to say about the new record title:
“It took us over two decades to come up with a title that…says it all. While our new songs artistically take surprisingly adventurous directions, our message stands steadfast—Proud and Radical. The Satanist stands for undying yearning for liberation and love for freedom in all aspects of life. Considering all our life experiences that often took dramatic curves I couldn’t think of more appropriate and fitting statement of who and where we are now.”
