At time of writing, Poland’s unstoppable black/death metal
mavens Behemoth are currently recording their eleventh album with producer Daniel
Bergstrand in Monochrom Studios.
The record, which singer/guitarist Adam “Nergal” Darski has
stated that he hopes to release in “autumn 2018”, will be the follow-up to 2014’s
magnum opus The Satanist, which is
already being heralded as one of the finest metal albums of the 21st
The album was truly a perfect exercise in how an extreme
disc should play out: it fused countless heavy sub-genres to craft a diverse yet focused ride. Just how Behemoth will
top what many agree to be their finest moment remains a mystery, but Nergal
seems confident his group can pull it off (although, to be honest, we’d all be
terrified if he wasn’t).
The frontman has gone on record saying that the band has “ten
to thirteen” songs ready, one of which can
be partially heard above in a live snippet taken from Nergal’s Instagram
account. He’s also said that his time in his side-project Me and
That Man made him hungrier than ever for “radical sounds”, hoping for them to
be “redefining and rejuvenating” for Behemoth.
I don’t know about you but, for me, that sounds pretty exciting.
