Behemoth's new CD, "Demigod," has entered the Polish album chart at position No. 15. The Polish black metallers' latest effort left behind such artists as R.E.M. and Robbie Williams, according to a posting on the group's website.
"Demigod" — scheduled for release in the U.S. in early 2005 — was mixed by Behemoth frontman Nergal and producer Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames) at Dug-Out studios in Uppsala, Sweden. Mastering duties were handled at the Cutting Room studios in Stockholm. A guest appearance by Nile's Karl Sanders is included in the track "Xul".
Behemoth kicked off a European tour Krisiun, Incantation and Ragnarok on Thursday (Oct. 21) in Tilburg, the Netherlands. Nergal commented: "I have to say, that I'm more than happy that we finally hit the road. It's been awhile since we toured Europe last time but what is happening at the shows goes far beyond our expectations. Great turnouts, new album is selling like hell, the band seems to be in its best shape. Tilburg was very good as for the first date of the tour, but Groningen (Holland) and Vosselaar (Belgium) were just AMAZING! I am speechless...never thought that there would be so many Behemoth freaks in the crowd! Thanx for showing up! Brothers in Biebob, sorry for the short set. I promise we will be back with a longer one! You are the reason for me to go on. Behemoth loves you."
Krisiun, have been a trademark for musical violence and a steady nominee for the title of the globe's fastest Death Metal act throughout their twelve years of existence. Still, it is high time to reconsider your preconceived notions about the band. "Bloodshed" (recorded 100% analog) may not be a full new studio-album, but it's no less than 8 brand-new tracks (incl. 3 intros/outros) that show a different side of the band. It also includes four re-mastered tracks of their rare "Unmerciful Order" MCD, which was originally released in 1993 and today is being hailed as a cult underground release. "Bloodshed" grinds -- but not solely in the sense of sonic assaults crafted out of insane speed. Without losing any of their intensity, Krisiun went for some mid-paced songs that will surely surprise anybody who thought the band wouldn't be capable combining raw brutality with an ultimate technical edge and pounding groove riffs. Those who are worried about one of the last advocates of the extreme selling-out can be relieved: Unholy compositions like "Slain Fate," "Ominous" and "Visions Beyond" are underlined by the raw fury of the early tracks from "Unmerciful Order": Tracks eight through eleven bear witness that Krisiun have been and will always be a guarantee for ultra-violence. The 7-minute outro "MMIV" shows another side of the band with its spooky, almost 80's horror-film feel. Just make sure not to hit the repeat-button too early on this track. Despite a total playing-time of 40 minutes, "Bloodshed" will be available for the fan-friendly price of a mid-priced CD. About the time "Bloodshed" is released, Krisiun will go out for another round of the relentless live shows for which they are so famous. They will embark on the European "Clash Of Demigods" tour with co-headliners Behemoth and with support from Incantation and Ragnarok. Be warned that blood will be shed...
"Hey there! Sorry for delay... I've been extremely busy with all the organisation for the new album. Good news is that DVD is finally available. Check out at your local stores. This week we are filming the first video for "Conquer All" song. Joanna Rechnio is taking care of the production and I can't wait to see the final result. I'm sure it will kill... and finally we got some tour dates announced too. I'm really happy things are so hectic...it's gonna be the most intense live activities we've ever been part of...See ya on tour then!" said Nergal about Behemoth's recent moves.
