The Satanist
Style: Black / Death Metal
Release date: 3 February, 2014
Playing time: 43:04

Following Behemoth's achievement has been a unique up and going musical experience. The Satanist, fresh release, is no exception.

The Satanist discloses a more melodic side of the band and breaths I've often missed in some of their previous records, that still were so addictive you hardly thought about breathing before they were over and between two run-throughs.

Behemoth is a band with a characteristic musical personality, in constant evolution and in search for new artistic achievements. As fans of old will clearly recognize them in this last release, they will also get the chance of rediscovering all that Behemoth have made themselves famous for: pounding, intense energy, cut-through riffs, a distinctive sound, and as a live band self-confidence and stage aura.

As Master Nergal himself states, The Satanist is an album most "magic, dangerous, adventurous, organic".

Behemoth are currently touring Europe with Cradle Of Filth. Aie, missing this is too bad. Take one for me!
For you traveling overseas in April, check out the band's website for one of their many dates in U.S.A. and Canada, before finally finding them in June at the HELLFEST Metal Festival.
