According to Nuclear Blast, BEHEMOTH has posted a brand new track from their forthcoming album, »The Satanist«. The track is entitled ‘Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer’ and is accompanied by a lyric video that includes artwork and text from inside the digipak booklet. Ora pro nobis, which is latin for “pray for us”, features lyrics penned by Nergal, along with Krzysztof Azarewicz. Watch and listen here:
BEHEMOTH front man, Nergal, simply offers the following statement: “The Satanist is magic. It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic.” – Album pre-orders can be made right HERE!
BEHEMOTH has also premiered the 4th part of “The Satanist” Prologue, check it out HERE, exclusively on Metalsucks.
The album was produced by BEHEMOTH, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. »The Satanist« was mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER) and mastered by Ted Jensen (METALLICA, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art for »The Satanist« was painted by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas ( denisforkas.com ). The paint used included some of Nergal’s own blood! Additional art and design was completed by Metastazis (PARADISE LOST, etc.) and Zbigniew Bielak (WATAIN, GHOST).
BEHEMOTH is proud to announce that they will be returning to North America this Spring as part of the Metal Alliance Tour 2014! This will be the band’s first North American tour in support of their new album, »The Satanist«. Joining BEHEMOTH on this tour will be Metal Blade label mates, GOATWHORE, along with additional support from 1349, INQUISITION, and BLACK CROWN INITIATE.
