Behemoth 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. The Metal Alliance Tour will begin April 4th in Tempe, AZ and runs through May 3rd.
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.
The Satanist was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. The album 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. 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).
Inquisition are touring in support of their critically acclaimed new album, ‘Obscure Verses for the Multiverse’. Obscure Verses for the Multiverse, the band’s first for Season of Mist, has landed on several “best of 2013” year-end lists, including Decibel Magazine, MetalSucks, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Buzzfeed, Invisible Oranges, and many more. Listen to the album that Decibel Magazine is calling “The Black Metal album of 2013” below.
Inquisition previously announced the first European tour for ‘Obscure Verses for the Multiverse’. The tour sees Inquisition play alongside Behemoth, Cradle Of Filth, and In Solitude, and runs from Feb. 7 to March 1.
