Polish black death metal band Behemoth have announced the title of their 10th studio album as The Satanist. The album will be released this fall via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders, new songs, and more will be posted on the Metal Blade Records Behemoth landing page in the coming weeks.
Front man Nergal states, “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.”
Below is an image from the studio as well as lyrics from an upcoming song.
Lyrics posted via a Facebook post that stated “Magick is happening…” read:
“…At faintest whim they would impale the Sun
and thus the sheep in me became the wolf in man
I am the fly that flew forth from the ark
My thoughts like insects
Whoring wounds divine…”
