Behemoth are a Polish 'blackened death metal' outfit hailing from from Gdańsk. Formed in 1991, the band consists of frontman Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski, bassist Tomasz ‘Orion’ Wróblewski, and drummer Zbigniew ‘Inferno’ Promiński.
Behemoth are considered pioneers and a driving force in the Polish death metal/extreme metal scene, and even though Darski claims he doesn't like the band being labelled, they are without doubt frontrunners in their class.
Boasting releases on big labels like Century Media, Nuclear Blast, and Metal Blade, they put out their debut album 'Sventevith (Storming Near the Baltic)' in 1995. As of 2014, they're ten albums down and their latest, 2014's 'The Satanist', topped the Polish charts for the second consecutive time.
Frontman Darski has been stricken with illness in recent years, but he's now back in business - and so is the band. Following a UK tour alongside Decapitated and Grand Magus in December 2014, Behemoth we're back for a new North American tour in 2016, where they'll be playing 'The Satanist' in full. 2017 saw the giants touring North America alongside two huge acts; Slayer and Lamb of God.
Set to release a new album soon, Behemoth have now confirmed the ECCLESIA DIABOLICA AMERICA 2018 E.V. Tour of North America for fall 2018, followed by more UK and European dates into 2019. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
