Karl Sanders, guitarist and vocalist from American death metallers NILE has recorded a guest solo for the song 'Xul' off of BEHEMOTH's forthcoming record, Demigod. The album is still being recorded at Hendrix Studios (in Lublin, Poland) and soon we'll be mixed in Dug Out Studios in Uppsala, Sweden by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames, Strapping Young Lad).

Behemoth guitarist/vocalist Nergal commented:

"I've known Karl and all the guys in Nile for quite a few years now. Whenever we cross paths we always have a great time and get along really well. Moreover, I've always been totally astonished by their great works, precision, devotion and unquestionable originality. When I asked Karl, if he'd like to put some solo on the album, the reaction was very enthusiastic. It was a really quick job. I handed him a rough mix of the song and next night I found this great lead part in my email box. It sounded TERRIFIC! I'm more than happy about the fact of his contribution. Thank You Karl for such an excellent gift! It is an honor!"

Meanwhile, Sanders says:

"I have always held Behemoth in musical high regard. They are somehow transcending many preconceived barriers of Death and Black Metal, creating a music that renders futile any such external conceptions of artificial stylistic limitations. Behemoth is the epitome of what a Metal band SHOULD be - forging their own sound with originality, fire and brutality. For me It is a high honor, to be a guest on the new Behemoth, I am a true fan of their work. I was blown away by the music I heard on the track "Xul". Completely amazing drumming, great riffs, unholy conviction, and a superb tightness to the entire performance that was just kick ass and inspiring. I definitely wanted to play a solo that had feeling and fire, but also worked together with the riffs and rhythm section, in a way that lets all of it work together to make a very dying, apocalyptic end of the world melody -The Flame top 79 Dean V I used for the lead has a very thick singing type of tone -and the track just seemed conducive to let that guitar scream out in anguish. Many thanks to Nergal for making it happen."

In other news, Behemoth is almost done laying down the tracks for new album. and Nergal has worked with professional male choirs on one of the songs.

"This was my first conducting experience and the first time I had a chance to work with professional choirs (Academic Male Choir from Lublin , Poland ). Thanks to Piotr BaÒka, one of the most talented Polish Orchestra producers (who actually did some orchestrations on Demigod) we did some nice job on the album...and it sounds...real and huge! We hired the choir to do just few lines in the opening song "Sculpting the throne ov Seth", in order to achieve something more than just ordinary sampled choirs, like thousands of bands do...I'm happy about the way the new album is turning. Wondering what fans will think of this record."

A mid-October release is planned for "Demigod" through Regain in Europe, Mystic in Poland, Irond in Russia, Raven in Israel and Century Media in North and South America.
