Biography

There are multiple artists with this name:

1) Behemoth is a Polish band from Gdańsk. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground, alongside bands such as Vader, Decapitated, Vesania and Hate. Over the years Behemoth has moved from traditional into and then into modern with each consecutive release. They have released 9 full length albums so far.

The band was formed in 1991 as a trio, starting with raw and primitive rehearsal tapes (Endless Damnation) and demos (The Return of the Northern Moon), the most significant of which was the second one—…From the Pagan Vastlands (1993)—showing the growing potential of the then teenage Nergal. Tomasz Wróblewski likes to announce that his metal influences sprung from Black Sabbath for giving him his ideas of “demonic” chords.

This tape was released by Polish label Pagan Records and later on by the American Wild Rags. Signing with a little-known black metal bands from mid-eastern Europe with enormous potential. Consequently, stepping forward, the band (as the three piece with Nergal, Baal, and Les) recorded their second album Grom.

At the same time they recorded Grom, Behemoth finally got a chance to play live shows in its native country and finally tour around Europe, gaining stage experience as well as positive feedback from the audience. Two years later, the band recorded a third album, titled Pandemonic Incantations which was a “breakthrough moment” in Behemoth’s short career.

    @versionfiv, it's funny, when somebody crows about laughable chats while having Watain, Dragonforce, Destroyer 666, Misfits is his.

    it's one thing to say you think a band sucks, and another to say their fans have shitty taste in music for liking them. anyway except for Bad Sector, your charts are laughable.

    I pointed out that you listen to BVB because you are on here bashing Behemoth. People bash BVB all the time, they're not even metal, Behemoth is, don't stoop to their level by coming to the Behemoth box and doing the same thing. People have different tastes, grow up.

    @spineshank155, even BVB is better than Behemoth, though BVB isn't very awesome band. All you notice BVB in my charts and then you try to crap on me bacause of that. It looks so funny, when a shitter, listener of Overkill, Death, Behemoth or some pop-black metal band(Mayhem, Immortal etc.), crows oly because of it.

    That's funny coming from someone who listens to BVB. Behemoth is top notch metal, better then most commercial crap.
