Behemoth to Release Official Written Biography



Just announced today, Behemoth, probably the most popular darken black metal bands today, is releasing a written biography called 'Devil's Conquistadors' by Łukasz Dunaj. The book is an in-depth look at the history of the band their rise in the heavy metal world and how they have become one of the most popular items in their homeland Poland.   Łukasz Dunaj has stated:

Poland's response to Motley Crüe's biography The Dirt.

This is going to be a 490-page hardcover book officially released by Metal Blade Records on February 24, 2015.  Included are pages with old photos of the band, flyers and lyric sheets.  [Pre-orders] will include an exclusive shirt that can only be bought with the pre-ordered book.

Cridts like Krzysztof Azarewicz had this to say:

If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which BEHEMOTH's music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might.

And Nergal from Behemoth said:

The first communion was a very important moment for me. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Of course, not as a religion experience - I didn't understand anything and couldn't care less. Same as all the other kids. We all stood there with our votive candles and waited for one thing. Cash. The first communion must be one moment when you get the most money you're ever going to get as a child. And for this money, I bought myself my first electric guitar. Not a bike, no Legos - a guitar.

If reading isn't your thing you can still check them out on their North American Tour with Cannibal Corpse, Aeon and Tribulation.
