“The Satanist” to be released February 4th in North America
BEHEMOTH has posted a brand new behind the scenes video for “The Satanist.” This video is the first in a series of four that chronicles a selection of the creative and technical processes behind the album that Albert Mudrian of Decibel Magazine heralds as “simply the best Behemoth record ever.” Watch the making of video now at metalblade.com/behemoth, where pre-order bundles for “The Satanist” are also available.
BEHEMOTH front man, Nergal, simply offers the following statement: “The Satanist is magic. It’s dangerous. It’s adventurous, and it’s organic.”
“The Satanist” pre-order bundles are available now and include: CD, LP, t-shirt, as well as the deluxe box set, and are available at metalblade.com/behemoth in North America, nuclearblast.de/behemoth in Europe, and on behemoth-store.com ( digibook and box). “The Satanist” will be unleashed on February 3rd in the UK, February 4th in North America and Poland, February 5th in Japan, and February 7th in Europe and the rest of the world. Also, “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” has been released on iTunes and can be purchased HERE.
Additionally, Behemoth‘s highly anticipated new video for “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” was launched at the end of 2013. The visual masterpiece was produced by Grupa 13 and is one of Behemoth‘s most unsettling and unique works to date. Watch “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” now on youtube (censored) and vimeo (uncensored).
“The Satanist” deluxe box, which is available in North America as an European import, includes: CD/DVD digibook in silver mirror slipcase with a high quality 44 page booklet (with gold foil, UV gloss lamination), supersize poster flag (approx. 3.5′ x 5′), wooden black inverted rosary cross, metal pin, black envelope with black communion wafers. The DVD, “Live Barbarossa,” includes a professionally filmed show in Ekaterinburg, Russia, as well as 30 min documentary about the creative process behind “The Satanist.”
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).
