Behemoth Postpone New Album to 2014
Behemoth's 10th studio album, The Satanist, which was originally announced to be released this fall, has now been pushed to 2014.
The album release will be accompanied by an extensive headlining tour.
Regarding the title of the new album, frontman Nergal says, "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."
The June/July issue of Revolver had an in-studio feature with Nergal where he talked about the new album, lawsuits, and leukemia.
Behemoth also dropped off Mayhem Festival earlier this year due to drummer Inferno needing surgery.
