BEHEMOTH thank their fans for a successful tour - announce second leg for fall 2016


BEHEMOTH have just finished the first part of their overly successful Europa Blasphemia Tourthis past Sunday in Ljubljana.

The tour led BEHEMOTH through 15 different cities with 10 of the shows being completely sold out, and marked the biggest headline run in the band's history.

Frontman Nergal released the following statement to reach out to the band's fans and thank them for their endless dedication:

"First of all, I would like to send my deepest gratitude to our legions in Europe for making this tour so big and spectacular! You dedication and loyalty can not be underrated and we owe you big time! With such a strong package of amazing musicians and friends: ABBATH, ENTOMBED A.D. and INQUISITION we were nothing short of unstoppable machine raging thru the old continent taking no prisoners on the way! What a tour! What a vibe! I can not hide my enthusiasm and will not… this was by far my FAVOURITE trek and most memorable of all the tours we've done. Period! Thanks goes to Dominik and Rock the Nation staff for always being at the top of things and for being...a family. Simple as that. Last but not least I must say that we have THE best road crew ever… or I should say: the best road WARRIORS. Respect and honour!"

BEHEMOTH will commence touring Europe later this year. The second part of the Europa Blasphemia Tour will kick off on October 20 in Wiesbaden, Germany and will feature MGŁA and SECRETS OF THE MOON as support acts.

GRAND MAGUS to release new album »Sword Songs« on May 13th!

136504 Grand Magus Sword SongsSwedish riff lords GRAND MAGUS have announced their new studio album: »Sword Songs«.
The 8th studio album will be released on May 13th through Nuclear Blast.

This stunning new cover artwork was created by acclaimed artist Anthony Roberts.

Mastermind JB commented:
“We put all of our sweat, blood and tears into this new album and I think that you can hear that. For me, "Sword Songs" is the best GRAND MAGUS album ever! The new songs are faster and more aggressive than on "Triumph And Power” - and we have also included some more extreme and harder stuff. I’m convinced that there are some future classics on the disc!"

»Sword Songs« was produced by Nico Elgstrand at Studio Supa in Stockholm, Sweden.
Guitars, vocals and bass were recorded at Studio Supa, too. Drums were recorded with Roberto Laghi at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The album was mixed by Roberto Laghi (Oral Majority Records, Gothenburg) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Chartmakers, Helsinki).

Furthermore, TOXIC VISION and BEHEMOTH have confirmed that their new exhibition concept which will feature collaborative work of TOXIC VISION and BEHEMOTH will be part of the band's upcoming tour.
Tickets for the exhibition will be 10EUR and can be purchased at the show. TOXIC VISION will also offer a special »The Congregation« shirt that you can purchase for 20 Euro or you get yourself an exhibition ticket plus the shirt for 25EUR. Presale tickets for »The Congregation« are available at:

TOXIC VISION is the artist that BEHEMOTH had been working with closely over the past years in terms of stage outfits, music videos, stage/photo props and such. The exhibition is planned to be held in a tent, a capsule created to capture an experience on its own and built a solely for this purpose. It was first shown by TOXIC VISION (in a similar way) at this year's installment of the renowned Inferno Festival (see photos below). More info to be announced soon.

Commented band leader Nergal: "We've always pushed ourselves very hard trying to reach the highest picks of artistic creativity. This time around we are not only coming back to perform »The Satanist« in its entirety, but are also bringing along a collaboration that's unheard of! Toxic Vision, renowned and absolutely brilliant artist and designer from Canada whom we have worked with on several projects in the past (BEHEMOTH stage gear, video clip costumes…) will be accompanying us on this European trek with a unique exhibition called "The Congregation"! We are beyond excited to see how these synergies coexist! Sharon, it's an honour to welcome you on board!"

Adds TOXIC VISION CEO Sharon Toxic: "It is a real honour to work alongside BEHEMOTH and have this opportunity to bring a vision to life! We aim to dazzle and inspire, I am inviting everyone to step into the dark world of "The Congregation" - an exclusive showcase of my work with BEHEMOTH. Nothing like this has been done before, and of course, nothing is really as it seems with Toxic Vision. This is a culmination of craft and magic ... once you step inside, you might never find your way out."

The band had recently released the official music video for the title track of their critically acclaimed album, »The Satanist«. Watch the video here:  |  | 

First European shows of Amon Amarth tour sold out incredibly fast!

Amon Amarth’s album launch shows are sold out. Within less than 24 hours there were no more tickets available for the Berlin show at Postbahnhof. Tilburg and London ran out of tickets even faster: Whilst Tilburg sold all tickets within 2 hours, London was sold out within 10 (!!!) minutes. There are still a few tickets left for Paris.

Amon Amarth revealed first details about the new album, 'Jomsviking' and launched a video for the first single, "First Kill” last Monday.

On March 25th, Swedish metal kings Amon Amarth will unleash their 10th studio album, Jomsviking, via Metal Blade Records (North America)/Sony Music (International)! Jomsviking - the band's first concept record in their storied career - tells a tragic tale of love and revenge, backed by the Swedes' trademark melodic, anthemic metal, which was produced and mixed once again by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Accept) and also features special guest session drummer Tobias Gustafsson (Vomitory). The epic original story is set in the world of the Jomsvikings, the legendary order of mercenary Vikings. As front-man Johan Hegg explains: "The Jomsvikings were a shadowy and legendary sect of Viking mercenaries, as shrouded in myth now as they were when they fought across Europe and the Middle East. Ruthless and deadly warriors who fought for the highest bidder, their code was simple: Show no fear. Never retreat. Defend your brothers, and when called upon, avenge their deaths. I felt we were finally ready to use their story as the jumping off point for an Amon Amarth album. The Jomsvikings and their world is the background for the story of a young man that is in love with a girl but unfortunately she's being married off. He accidentally kills a man when this happens and he has to flee - but he swears to have revenge and win her back. He can't let go of the past. He feels that he's been wronged and his life has been destroyed. The way the story evolves is not a happy story."

By far their most ambitious project to date, Jomsviking is available for pre-order in various formats now at (see below for the official track-listing) - where fans can also view the video for the album's first single, "First Kill". Produced by Grupa 13 ( and directed by Darek Szermanowicz (Behemoth), "First Kill" was filmed in Gohrweide (Germany) and Warsaw (Poland) and features a cinematic depiction of the violent, brutal lyrics, along with powerful live footage of the band performing with their full dragon head and pyro stage-set.

Jomsviking track-listing:

1. First Kill
2. Wanderer
3. On A Sea Of Blood
4. One Against All
5. Raise Your Horns
6. The Way Of Vikings
7. At Dawn‘s First Light
8. One Thousand Burning Arrows
9. Vengeance Is My Name (bonus track - for digibook, digital, LP, and viking ship editions)
10. A Dream That Cannot Be (Featuring Doro Pesch)
