70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise


Formed: 1994
From: Finland
Last Known Status: Active


"The unattractive worm of Behexen hatched out in '94 with members Torog, Horns & Reaper. The first expression of frustrating hate "Reality is in Evil" was despaired in '95 by the ugly larva.

The worm remained but went through mutation and vomited the depression "Eternal Realm" in '97. After that worm created the dobbelganger and continued to brutalize infecting the insulting "Blessed be the Darkness" in '98, the third blasphemic desecration.

Then Reaper left the etheric fraternity, and Gargantum became the next victim for the ugly maggot and as it grew more and more hungry, Lunatic was the next sick soul soon to be devoured. "Blessed be the Darkness" brought deal from Sinister Figure and the debut illness "Rituale Satanum" was created to darken the next millenium. After this the worm started bubbling and shivering and waited 3 years for having its teeth & hunger growing...

Then the next offering joined, Veilroth, and after that the deal was made with the Finnish Woodcut Records and the desperate symphony of blasphemies "By the Blessing of Satan" was finally bred. Not so long after that it was time for larva to fart out the next stinking piece of wet shit, the split-lp with Horna.

But then it became relevant for maggot to cut out the bubbling tumour, Lunatic, in order to be able to continue more efficiently to consume the tissue and let the unholy anti-matter burst out from inside. This worm will continue spreading diseases..."

Behexen Posts "Nightside Emanations" Trailer

Behexen will be releasing new album "Nightside Emanations" this coming September 21st through Debemur Morti Productions. A teaser trailer for the release is available below, and Debemur Morti also commented:

"Ushering the dawn of a new age of darkness, Behexen stirs from its solitary slumber with 'Nightside Emanations,' invoking chaos, heralding the decay of the (self-)righteous, celebrating the ominous, all-consuming onset of Death - embracing that eternal, perpetual, unflinching reality that awaits us all. These ten new incantations to the ancient ones are imbued with an organic, evil sound; blessed / cursed / inspired by forces from the nether realm. The serpent of black fire is summoned to set the world aflame, mankind and his impetitude razed and cleansed by the unforgiving tendrils of serpentine flame. A ritual reawakening, a call to demons, 'Nightside Emanations' traverses abyssic dungeons, diffusing irresistible energies from the temple of silent curses. As all around you crumbles to dust, bow beneath the black star of Lucifer. Acknowledge the horned master in all his forms; recognise and revere his many faces." More...
