BEHEMOTH posts final “The Satanist” prologue: part IV exclusively on MetalSucks.net

BEHEMOTH has posted a brand new behind the scenes video for “The Satanist.” This video is the fourth and final installment in a series of videos that offer a glimpse into the thought process behind the album that Albert Mudrian of Decibel Magazine heralds as “simply the best Behemoth record ever.” The video is streaming exclusively on metalsucks.net HERE.

Yesterday, BEHEMOTH posted a brand new track from “The Satanist.” The track is entitled “Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer” and is accompanied by a lyric video that includes artwork and text from inside the digipak booklet. Ora pro nobis, which is latin for “pray for us”, features lyrics penned by Nergal, along with Krzysztof Azarewicz. Watch and listen now at metalblade.com/behemoth.

BEHEMOTH front man, Nergal, simply offers the following statement: “The Satanist is magic. It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic.”

The Satanist” was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. “The Satanist” was mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art for “The Satanist” was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas (denisforkas.com). The paint used included some of Nergal’s own blood! Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (Paradise Lost, etc.) and Zbigniew Bielak (Watain, Ghost).

Behemoth will be returning to North America this Spring as part of the Metal Alliance Tour 2014! This will be the band’s first North American tour in support of their new album, “The Satanist.” Joining Behemoth on this tour will be Metal Blade label mates, Goatwhore, along with additional support from 1349Inquisition, and Black Crown Initiate.

REVIEW: Behemoth’s Return with “The Satanist” is God Damned Great

Make no mistake, this is not for pussies.  Sorry, it has to be said.  Don’t come to this altar expecting to play games, play poser, play Warped Tour shit.  This is real.  Real fucking god damn great.  From the opening of “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” (I saw the virgin’s cunt spawning forth the snake/I witnessed tribes ov Judah reduced to ruin/I watched disciples twelve dissolved by flame/Looked down on son ov god snuffed in vain) Behemoth’s “The Satanist” lays the ground in blood and death and shows every ‘wanna be’ where they can take their candy asses.  As  Nergal, the driving force behind Behemoth since their inception in 1991 has stated, “The Satanist is magic. It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic”.

“While instantly recognizable as the work of the Polish blackened death quartet it takes their sound in previously unimagined and riveting directions for their tenth record (press release)”.  The second track, “Furor Divinus” is brutal, multi-layered, and an in-your-face crushing mass of metal pounding that leaves one exhausted when the abrupt ending suddenly hits.  Leading right into the opening lyrics, “I believe in Satan,” of “Messe Noire” the punishment does not let up, but the tempo slows somewhat into ebbs and flows of carnal cacophony that blends richly to become visions from a haunting and hellish Gustave Doré piece. “Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer” takes these themes (Conjure the serpent messenger/Saviour (order in) world’s decay/Concord in temptation, And in the fall of Eve) and builds higher upon the pyre, continuing with The Satanist’s subject matter, “I remember before we we had a record deal I was having a conversation with Baal, the band’s original drummer, and we said okay, if one day we manage to record an album and put it out how cool would it be to split up right after that? It would be one record and no more, and there was something about that that had an appeal, but y’know what, it doesn’t work like that for individuals like myself. Hunger has always driven me through life, and I can never sit in one place and relax for too long because I have the need to explore this whole universe in every possible way. Now, over two decades later it’s the same story. I can tell you I have no problems with finishing my career after this record. Just say the title itself: The Satanist. How the fuck am I gonna beat that title? It sounds like the ultimate definition of our art – but then again, I remember that conversation with Baal, and I know it doesn’t work like that, so I know there will probably be other incarnations of our artistic identity, one way or another. All I know is I love being here and now, and I just want to underline that I couldn’t be more proud and happy with my own music. It really drives me through the day, and now I just want to sit back and hear any and all opinions of it.”

The title of the record itself is undeniable in its power, and Nergal sees it as capturing the primal wisdom that the band have always tried to maintain. “To me it’s not pretentious at all. It’s very straight up, very sincere, and a devastating, conquering statement. There’s no compromise or bullshit or gimmicks. What I love about it is that it just speaks for itself. On one hand it’s a very black and white title: The Satanist is like a fucking nail through the hand of Jesus Christ, period. No more, no less. But then again, as with everything else you put a hundred people together and ask them what the name The Satanist means to them and you’re going to hear a hundred different opinions, which they can then discuss and fight over.”Likewise, Nergal views the lyrical content of the record as similarly open to interpretation, encouraging this. “There’s a lot of symbolism and reflections and impressions in there, and it’s using millions of metaphors to express a certain very sinister and very captivating atmosphere, but there are no answers. People always like to have a deeper insight into what we do, but that’s not what we want to give with this record. The way I see it is that between us we can make a huge fucking pyre and set the world on fire, but what we’re doing is just giving you the matches, giving you the spark, what you want to do with it is up to you. Personally, if I sat down with the lyrics in front of me I too would probably come up with a lot of different interpretations and concepts, it’s a never ending process, and that’s exciting to me.”  Take the tune “Amen”, how does one determine the clear dichotomy of the title and know what direction Negral wants the listener to go down?  It’s a great quagmire of thought and part of what makes the content so intriguing and part of why those afraid to encounter these thematics and wrestle with them are truly missing out on the point.  This continues on with tunes such as the title track “The Satanist”, “Ben Sahar”, “In The Absence of Light” and “O Father O Satan O Sun!” (an amazing and soul blistering track).  So, one must question, does listening to this music make one ‘a satanist’?  I will leave that to those with intelligence, take that for what you will, judge or do not judge at your discretion (DILLIGAF).  Bottom line is that Behemoth have created a masterpiece of metal here that puts up the challenge, throws down the gauntlet so to speak, for anyone to match or surpass the utter heaviness and outright bloodiness of this sonic soul waster.

It has been a rocky road leading to the realization of the album. Having dropped 2009’s Evangelion to almost universal critical acclaim they saw it top the chart in their native country and dramatically expand their following around the world, and playing some of the best shows of their lives the band seemed truly unstoppable. But, in August 2010 Nergal was diagnosed with leukemia, stopping them in their tracks. Forced to abandon their ongoing tour in support of Evangelion Nergal was hospitalized, and both he and Behemoth faced an uncertain future. With the search for a bone marrow donor ultimately successful Nergal underwent a transplant, leaving the hospital after six months and beginning down the long road to rehabilitation. “I knew I was pretty much fucked and there was a battle to be won, and I had no fucking idea if it was going to take six months or twelve months or maybe four years, because with cancer you never know. I learned from being in the hospital that there are things in life that you can control and things that you can’t control. The sooner you realize which is which it’s going to make your life so much easier, and since then I started to focus on the right things. I could be determined, I could have discipline, I could have faith, but everything else is not under my control, and it really was a case of just crossing fingers for the best possible outcome. I was fortunate enough that that recovery period was relatively fast, and that I was really strong and very determined to get back into shape made a real difference.”

Rather than immediately getting down to working on a new album, the band – also comprised of drummer Inferno, bassist Orion, and guitarist Seth – set out to complete the abandoned touring cycle for Evangelion, hitting the road for the aptly titled Phoenix Rising Tour. Wanting to prove they were stronger than ever the first show was the only time doubts crept into Nergal’s mind. “I was a fucking wreck, and I almost didn’t make it to the end of the set. The venue was really smoky, and that was stuffing my nose and my lungs, and physically I felt that I couldn’t pull it off. I did, but I was close to passing out on stage. I was literally shocked by this, I remember thinking while we were playing shit, what if I can’t do this anymore? I’m just a human being after all. Going into the next show I had no sleep because of all the nerves and anxiety, but it was fucking amazing. With every following show I would get stronger and stronger and grow more confident, and aware of the fact that yes, we will do this.”

Having returned to full force the band were ready to once more move forward, and they began work on what would become The Satanist. While many bands might be concerned with how to follow up a record as devastatingly powerful – and successful – as Evangelion Nergal faced no such doubts. “I don’t race myself, and I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. Evangelion was a very important record to us, and yes, it was very successful too, but in making The Satanist it wasn’t a point of beating that. The point was to do what was organic, and make a natural and honest and sincere album, and that’s it. Now the record is finished I like to think of it as an album that is just so different that you can’t really compare it to our previous works, which is the best outcome I could hope for.”One thing is inarguable, and that is the record is the most sonically rich and complex released under the Behemoth name. With layer upon layer of sound it has great sonic density, but there is intricacy to this, and nothing is forced or contrived. “I don’t have a kid but I think the process of raising one is comparable: you invest a lot of your energy and effort and wisdom and money and you educate them, but there’s never a one hundred percent guarantee he’s going to become a lawyer and not a serial killer. It’s the same story with the records – we supply the elements but we just don’t know how these elements mixed together are going to come out, and I think it’s fortunate that we don’t have one hundred percent control over it! It makes for something special.”

Holiday gifts for the rock n’ rollers in your life

We are not always the easiest animal to please some say, but really we are as simple to figure out as microwave popcorn.  The rock n’ rollers in your life consume all things that have anything to do with music and the lifestyle.  The hardest thing about us is that we usually go out and get what we want so fast you never have a chance to get it for us.  So, unless you are going to creep on our Amazon Wishlist and hope we don’t snap up some of those goodies before the Holidays hit, may Pittsburgh Music Magazine suggest some easy as one, two, three gifts that the music maniac in your life didn’t know that they wanted but will absolutely love:

1.  Off the beaten path box sets:

I love quirky box sets that not only have cool tunes, but some extras thrown in that a consumer would not expect.  Jack White’s Third Man Record’s is offering The Paramount Records Wonder Cabinet Available at thirdmanstore.com.  ‘The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932,’ “an epic, two-volume omnibus of art, words and music housed in a limited-edition, hand-sculpted cabinet-of-wonder” features 800 newly-remastered digital tracks, representing 172 artists, 200+ fully-restored original 1920s ads and images, 6x 180g vinyl LPs pressed on burled chestnut colored vinyl w/ hand-engraved, blind-embossed gold-leaf labels, housed in a laser-etched white birch LP folio, 250 page deluxe large-format clothbound hardcover art book , 360 page encyclopedia-style softcover field guide containing artist portraits and full Paramount discography, a handcrafted quarter-sawn oak cabinet with lush sage velvet upholstery and custom-forged metal hardware, and a first-of-its-kind music and image player app, allowing user mgmt of all tracks and ads, housed on custom-designed USB drive.  Cool stuff, but It’s a bit pricey at $400.  If you have a metalhead in the fam, like yours truly, head on over to The Metal Blade Store and check out the amazing prices they have on box sets up to 60% of As I Lay Dying, Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, and much more.

20131024-paramount-x600-1382641153

2.  Alcohol…need I say more

Now unless your rocker has had to swear off (no shame in that my friends), a sure fire way to many a bleeding rebels heart is through his or her throat.  You could go the boring route and buy the case of beer you know they like or the bottle of liquor they always drink or you could go high class.  Recently, one of my best friend turned me onto Tequila.  I’m not talking about ‘To-Kill-Ya’ that we all have had some ‘nights best left forgotten’ drinking.  These are high quality tequilas that taste and go down like nothing you have ever had before.  Let me recommend the best-o-the best: Dobel Tequila is a blend of Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo tequilas which have been gently filtered and give the tequila an incredible Diamond Clarity and crispness that is unlike anything that has crossed my palate.  It’s the purity combined with the complexity derived from the aged tequilas makes Reserva del Maestro Dobel a completely unique experience.  I would have never believed it had it not been for my buddie’s Tequila Bar in his establishment and a unique taste test experience.  This is a small batch tequila that is hand crafted, aged in oak casks, and then get this…hand labeled and numbered.  We wrote the company and they were kind enough to offer our readers a FREE recipe book at this link.  Trust me on this one it’s a sure fire winner…and make sure they crack it open with you!

Maestro_Dobel_Tequila_BottleL

3. Something from “their band”

We all have our favorite bands.  Some of us have one and some of us have so many we can’t count.  The thing is whomever you are into, these days there a plethora of off the wall memorabilia and collector items that can be found relatively easily all depending on how much you want to search.  Luckily the internet is truly your friend here.  First, check the band’s website because they often have the cool stuff right under your nose.  Also, check Amazon because they have some pretty cool stuff as well.  But pages like Etsy, EBay, Rockabilia, and Rock N Roll Action Figures to name a few have some hidden gems within them that are sure to please.

Regardless, Happy Holiday, be safe, and I hope my wife is reading this (hints, hints!!!)

Behemoth Announces Title of Forthcoming Full-Length Album: “The Satanist”

Pick up the June/July issue of Revolver Magazine featuring Metallica on the cover to read an in-depth studio report from Nergal

BEHEMOTH, who have been holed up in Hertz Studios working on their tenth full-length album, are pleased to announce the title of their forthcoming full-length album—THE SATANIST. The album will come out in the fall of 2013—stay tuned for more studio updates, music, preorder info and more at metalblade.com/behemoth.

“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” comments BEHEMOTH front man Nergal.

As the band continues to record, they have been posting images and lyrics for portions of new songs. Fans can also read an in-depth interview with Nergal in the June/July issue of Revolver that features Metallica on the cover. Grab your copy here.

“This album is damn near perfect. Anyone who is a fan of death metal needs to listen to this pronto. And if anyone refuses, I’ll send Spartacus’ shadow after you.” – Sorrow Eternal

“To all the extreme metal enthusiasts, I highly recommend you go give this album a listen. Watch out though, ya might lose a limb in combat.” – The Circle Pit

“Brilliant music! These dudes are creative, fierce, and intelligent with a worldly feel to boot.” – The Circle Pit

“This is seriously powerful stuff. If Ade were a drug you wouldn’t last a day!!” – Before They Are Big

“Ade has presented what will be regarded as a classic not only in their own timeline but that one suspects within extreme metal. Spartacus is not only a must hear but a must have triumph.” – The Ring Master Review

“Italy’s Ade have released their second album of truly Romanic inspired death metal, and it’s going to be one of the best death metal albums of 2013.”- Teethofthedivine.com

“ADE have achieved on this album what no other Italian band in history have managed – to create an epic sound befitting the awesome might of their ancient empire in all its majesty, furor and decadence.” – Battlehelm.com

“It’s quite simply one of the most beautifully put together Death Metal albums I’ve heard recently without doubt.” – Metal-rules.com

“I have nothing negative to say about this album. Each song has something good about it. The production is spot on, the execution of the entire album is flawless and it blows me away everytime I listen to it and it was one of those moments where I accidentally discovered one of the best bands to put out a release in 2013. ADE is putting out one hell of an album this year. Spartacus is a must have!!!!” – Headbangorgtfo.com

“This album is extremely consistent, and sure to be a treat for any fan of Technical Death Metal.” – Metal-Observer.com

“I like what ADE are doing and their songs come across as powerfully executed. The style is death metal in origin and manages a great deal of melodic elements interspersed with some punishingly heavy material.” – Metaldisciple.com

“Spartacus is an excellent album from this fledgling band, who promise to be a major force in the future.” – TheMonolith.com

“If an epic death metal album filled with Greek & Roman lyrical imagery, killer guitar riffs, and blazing drum work sounds appealing, then you’ll need to investigate this one.” – Seaoftranquility.org

“It’s a unique enough style that I haven’t really head before, mixing what sounds like black, death and thrash metal with the Eastern influences.” – Rocknreelreviews.com

About: 

A five piece group based out of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, following in the footsteps of bands such as: Behemoth, Dissection, and Immortal, XUL have left the beaten path and set out to forge their own brand of Blackened Death Metal.

An energetic and interactive live performance – with crushing rhythms seamlessly coalescing into atmospheric passages, accompanied by punishing percussion waves and subtle vocal harmonies – expands upon the previously established essence of the sub-genre. With songs reminiscent of war-torn landscapes, destructive human nature and evil intent, XUL has captivated audiences and garnered positive reviews, and on June 16, 2012, released their first full length album, entitled “Malignance”.

Driven by determination and a diverse accumulation of musical comprehension, XUL has toured Western Canada, as well as proven themselves worthy to share the stage with bands such as: Obscura, Exhumed, Vreid, Kampfar, Woods of Ypres, Macabre, Withered, Cephalic Carnage, Archspire and 3 Inches of Blood. With a spring 2013 tour looming, XUL is determined to build on an impressive local following by infecting Western Canada with hopes of Canada in its entirety in the near future. XUL’s focus for winter 2012 is to meticulously craft new material for another release in 2013.

WATAIN signs worldwide deal with Century Media Records

Century Media Records is proud to welcome Swedish black metal extremists WATAIN to its worldwide family. Legitimately labeled as genre leaders, deservedly awarded with a Swedish Grammy, playing the world’s biggest stages and touring the globe constantly while reaching numerous top positions in the annual reader’s polls, WATAIN have worked hard and achieved a lot over the past years despite successfully ignoring any kind of conformity and concession to the metal mainstream. Unrivaled in their unwillingness to compromise and clear artistic vision, WATAIN are most befittingly described with the title of BATHORY’s third opus – “Blood Fire Death”, a fact they never fail to underline with their infamous live shows: The stench of rotting animal cadavers, the inferno of candelabras and torches, chalices of blood, darkness and death – WATAIN are a full scale attack on all sensory organs. In days of toothless, sterile, family-friendly metal they embody danger and dread and are rewarded with a maximum of support and appreciation.

WATAIN comments:
“We are writing this from a magical place of desolation and desert-like vastness, where wondrous things are at this very moment taking place. Things that will come to colour our world as well as yours in the strangest hues for many years to come. We are entering this new chapter of WATAIN with a will and confidence to make it the most diverse and rememberable so far. And with the things that we have in mind for the future, it looks like it will be just so. Just wait and see, f***ers! Loud and terrible shall the trumpets of Devils sound…”

“Century Media is massively excited to work with WATAIN. This band has it all: charisma, the firm will to conquer the world, and an authenticity you rarely find these days. Mixed with their creativity and musical impact – this band will make it to the top. They are a healthy slap in the face for any Metal Bourgeois. We are ready to kill for them!” says Antje Lange, General Manager Century Media Europe

“I am very proud and excited to welcome WATAIN to the Century Media family. There are few bands that remind me of when I first discovered metal as a teenager that could give me the same feeling of extreme release and evil such as SLAYER, VENOM and MERCYFUL FATE did. WATAIN is one of those rare bands and I look forward to being a part of their growing career and helping today’s future metalhead find their way!” adds Don Robertson, President Century Media USA.

Formed back in 1998, the first two albums Rabid Death’s Curse (2000) and Casus Luciferi (2003) established the band firmly within the underground scene whereas Sworn To The Dark (2007) and especially Lawless Darkness (2010) helped them conquer a wider audience making them one of the most talked about acts in recent years. Musically rooted in classic black metal inspired by the likes of VENOM, HELLHAMMER, BATHORY, MAYHEM, DISSECTION as well as the grandeur of old IRON MAIDEN, METALLICA, RAINBOW, it is the larger-than-life aesthetics and total dedication to their art that elevates WATAIN beyond almost any other extreme metal band out there. WATAIN is satanic metal at its most frightening and fascinating.

After celebrating their 13th anniversary with the release of the DVD/double live album Opus Diaboli (2012) under the band’s own imprint His Master’s Noise, followed by an US tour with BEHEMOTH, THE DEVIL’S BLOOD and IN SOLITUDE earlier this year plus celebrated shows at Wacken and Bloodstock Open Air, 2013 will see the release of WATAIN’s much anticipated fifth studio album via His Master’s Noise in collaboration with Century Media Records. Beware!

Rock Photographer JEREMY SAFFER Teams Up with SoundCheck Hollywood for “Capturing Music: A Music Photography Seminar” — June 23-24 at the SoundCheck Store

After a successful month of spearheading photo shoots with Meshuggah, Killswitch Engage, Miss May I, Dragonforce, Overkill, Watain, Behemoth, Baroness, and The Agonist, completing two back-to-back magazine cover shoots (Outburn and Hails and Horns), all the while having one cover already on shelves (Hails and Horns), Jeremy will be heading out to L.A. for his first west coast music photography seminar in conjunction with SoundCheck Hollywood.

SEMINAR DETAILS:
The two-day seminar and workshop will focus on portrait work with musicians and will cover the entire process—from setting up the photo shoot, scouting locations, posing, different types of lighting and lighting equipment for different situations, shooting endorsements, promotional images, CD layouts, and magazine layouts, to walking attendees through the process of what to do post-shoot, invoicing, getting repeat business, and even how to price yourself. Many other business aspects of being a professional photographer within the music industry will be discussed.

The first day will be the official seminar day, where all of the above is taught in the morning, as well as a lightroom and photoshop post processing tutorial. In the afternoon of day one, attendees will complete mock-photo shoots experimenting with different types of lighting equipment, lighting set-ups, poses, etc. Jeremy has also expanded the music photography business section even more, and will also include private portfolio critique for attendees that specifically request it.

On the second day of the seminar, attendees will experience a hands-on photo shoot of special guest bands done first by Jeremy (as a real-life example), and next by themselves! Attendees will take over and complete a real photo shoot with the band in various locations.

Hopeful attendees must act now; there are only 10 tickets available to this seminar!

On June 23rd at 6pm, SoundCheck Hollywood will re-open to the public. Jeremy will be on-site signing copies of his book Bring The Noise, as well as limited edition prints and some prints exclusive to the seminar weekend.

For more information and tickets, please visit http://www.jeremysaffer.com/soundcheckseminar.

While In L.A., Jeremy will have some limited availability for photo shoots and will have some one time only rates for these shoots.

Band shoots – $500 flat rate. includes 4-7 sets of 15-20 images per set and two separate sets of solo images, as well as any endorsement shots needed.

Model shoots – $250 for 3-4 sets of 15-20 images per set, $350 for 5-10 sets of 15-20 images per set. $500 unlimited half day shoot.
