Holy fucking shit. Anyone else smell that when they heard the news? Smells like a potential album of the year. Behemoth never disappoint, and this will be their finest moment without any doubt in my mind.
Okay, so let's get down to business here. What we know right now is that the album is called The Satanist and it comes out this fall. According to a Facebook post, Nergal said:
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.
I just can't even handle how excited I am right now about this record. After four years since their last and all the hardships nergal and the band went through (mostly Nergal), it's finally here. Just… yes. All of my yes. I will personally be following every single thing the band says up to the day it comes out, so consider us your number one source for Behemoth right now.
