Behemoth Announces Title Of Upcoming Album
0
Polish extreme metalers Behemoth have set Evangelion as the title of their 9th full-length studio album due out this summer. Evangelion marks the follow up to the bands extremely successful 2007 release The Apostasy; a release which saw Behemoth acquire the supporting slot to second stage headliners Hatebreed on Ozzfest which also featured Lamb Of God, Lordi, and Nile just to name a few. Following Ozzfest, Behemoth co-headlined the Radio Rebellion Tour with Job for a Cowboy with support from Gojira and Beneath the Massacre with the band's final North American tour being a direct support slot to Norwegian legends, Dimmu Borgi. After a short break for writing, Behemoth entered Radio Gdansk in Poland to begin recording. Evangelion see's Behemoth, Daniel Bergstrand and Woytek and Slawek Wieslawscy as producers with Colin Richardson (Machine Head, Slipknot, Napalm Death, Carcass) set to mix the album. Here's what frontman Nergal has to say; I've had this title in my head for almost a year now and it grew on me. It sounds nothing but powerful and epic which perfectly mirrors the essence of the new album. Evangelion comes from a Greek word Spreading the word of God' or spreading the good news'oh well, you already know that we love to play with the meanings and symbolism. We're here to show you our interpretation of what Evangelion really is. In support of the band's 9th full-length studio albumEvangelion, Behemoth will be touring on what is sure to be this summer's largest and most bone crushing metal festival; the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival.Behemoth will be conquering the Hot Topic stage alongside label mates Cannibal Corpse, The Black Dahlia Murder, Job For A Cowboy and Whitechapel on over 25 dates this summer so make sure to catch the masters of blackened death metal live when they come to a city near you.

    Man, Dimmu Borgir will always be singular, its a band name, unless there are two Dimmu Borgirs?

    I don't get it. The mayhem festival is supposed to have Slayer, Manson, Trivium as well. I just want to go to a cheap metal show with the couple of bands.

    Careful guys, we've got a funny one. They dress up like that because it's music to go to war to. They don't do it to be poster boys.

    He left out the last letters in the last sentence on purpose like UG did with Dimmu Borgir, All that remains, etc. So the joke's on you, buddy. Anyways, I never really got into Behemoth, their riffs seem kinda lame and mediocre to me and I don't like Nergal's vocals that much...

    these dudes are mentally children as any other death metal band is(except morbid angel :)

    I can't seem to get into these guys for some reason. Maybe I'm listening to the wrong songs or something. Can anyone recommend some songs? It would be a shame to go to Mayhem Fest and know all the other bands except for Behemoth.

    Haha when I saw the spelling error on Dimmu Borgir i just new us UG users couldn't let it slide, most the comments here are all about it haha! Anyways, this album will surely kick ass, Behemoth is just badass Blackened Death metal at its best, im very excited for this. I want to see them at mayhem, but there are SOO many crappy bands there

    These dudes are just awesome... They played in my hometown two years ago. (London, Ontario) The place was a shithole, not even 50 people in the crowd. The stage was too small for them to pose like usual. I'm still surprised they didn't just leave before they even played. I was so damn close though, I got hit in the face nearly ten times by Orion's rubber chaps.

    there is not a damn thing wrong with these guys. Go Behemoth. Real Metal. Cant wait for the album.

    well, I hope it's gonna be good. The Apostasy was off the ****ing hook, but the latest single (Ezkaton) sucked IMHO... Well, I'm looking forward to getting my ass kicked by behemoth ))

    MOAR SPELLCHEKZ PLEAZZ! lol. seriously. What the hell is with this spelling shit? Dimmu Borgi? Band names are singular. Reguardless of how awkward it sounds - bands are a single entity, the plural of Dimmu Borgir is Dimmu Borgirs. oh. and im glad im not the only one who caught both Killswitch Engag and All That Remain. theyre screwing with us in some way. That said...i cant wait for Behemot live in Chicag on the Mayhe tour. and the new album, Evangelio is going to kick ass.
