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.

    got my copy just now. #332 / 2000, the splatter is specially designed, not your normal splatter. small thin and short amount of gold spikes in the middle and over 3/4 of the record is black, very cool looking compared to your typical splatter.

    It's hard to tell whether Behemoth will never release a new album, currently Nergal doesn't have any inspiration. I wasn't even expecting The Satanist to come out, but Nergal got through Leukemia and managed to get an album out while doing shows. Personally it doesn't bother me if Behemoth doesn't write a new album, the band has done exceptionally well through the years and still managed to come out with a last good album. I thought Nergal was doing a tv show or something, now he's opening up a barbershop? Wow.

    Perhaps, I dunno. I mean I love the Satanist and all, but to say they'd be quitting on their apex would be way too exaggerated for me. I'd still prefer their Thelema/Zos era over anything else, but I would've loved to see them continue (and refine) in this direction Let's just wait and see what this new EP will bring us.

    well they couldnt end on a better note than The Satanist, and considering he's been doing extreme metal for more than 20 years now, I don't much blame them for wanting to stop.

    So... first Nergal talks about the possibility of Behemoth calling it quits, and now he opens a barbershop. I guess this upcoming EP could turn out to be their very last release.
