Behemoth revealed the title of their forthcoming album.

Polish metal titans Behemoth have revealed the title of their forthcoming tenth album.

The band have been holed up in Hertz Studios working on ‘The Satanist’ which is due for release in the Autumn via Nuclear Blast.

Commenting on the new album, frontman 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.”

So, without further ado, here’s 6.66 reasons why the new Behemoth album is going to slay:

1 – Nergal has been to Hell and back since Behemoth released the earth shattering ’Evangelion’ back in 2009. From legal bouts with the Catholic church in Poland to his battle against Leukemia, ’The Satanist’ will no doubt see the band at their most venomous.

2 – A new Behemoth album means there’ll be new Behemoth singles, which in turn means there’ll be new Behemoth videos and if the efforts from ‘Evangelion’ are anything to go by, then there’ll be utterly incredible. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s the mind blowing clip for ‘Lucifer’…

3 – In 2012, we caught Behemoth at a string of European festivals, culminating with their spellbinding headline performance at Bloodstock. The band have the power, the passion and the pyro to take their live show to even bigger stages across the globe, don’t expect to see them in a small venue anytime soon, that’s for sure.

4 – Christians to the lions. Given Nergal’s recent legal battles with the Catholic church in Poland, there’s no doubting that religion will come under even more scrutiny on the band’s forthcoming effort.

5 - Behemoth are no strangers to cover versions, virtually every release has had a cover tucked away somewhere. Perhaps ‘The Satanist’ will finally see this glorious live favourite committed to tape.

6.66 – The album’s called ‘The Satanist’ – it doesn’t get more extreme than that. This will, without doubt, be Behemoth’s mission statement, their call to arms, their definitive entry in the annals of metal.
