Well, looks like you can cross a name off the list for most anticipated albums of 2013. Behemoth has announced via their Facebook page that The Satanist, their long-awaited follow up to 2009’s Evangelion, will be coming out in 2014 instead of this Fall, when it had been scheduled to come out.
The release of Polish extreme metal masters BEHEMOTH’s upcoming tenth studio album »The Satanist« that has previously been announced for this fall has now been postponed to early 2014 and will be accompanied by an extensive headlining tour – further information including the exact dates to follow soon!
Until then, the only chance to catch BEHEMOTH live in Europe after their forthcoming show at Czech Brutal Assault Festival on August 10 will be their exclusive show at German “Metal Hammer Paradise” from November 15 to November 16. For further information, visit www.metal-hammer-paradise.de.
Regarding the title of the new album, front man Nergal recently stated: “It took us over two decades to come up with a title that…says it all. While our new songs artistically take surprisingly adventurous directions, our message stands steadfast—Proud and Radical. »The Satanist« stands for undying yearning for liberation and love for freedom in all aspects of life. Considering all our life experiences that often took dramatic curves I couldn’t think of more appropriate and fitting statement of who and where we are now.”
On the plus side, you now have an instant entry for that “most anticipated albums of 2014” list that you haven’t started yet. And if you were looking for an excuse to go to Europe in November, seeing the band’s last performance of the year should be reason enough.
