Behemoth launch communion wafers on tour

Behemoth have produced their own communion wafers for their Europa Blasfemia tour.

The band brought them along on their current Europe trek with Abbath, Entombed AD and Inquisition, on a run of dates where the group are playing The Satanist in full. Behemoth’s longtime collaborative artist and costume designer Toxic Vision is also holding an art exhibition at each show.

The black metal outfit also announced they’ll tour North America in April and May with support from Myrkur.

Behemoth teamed up with Polish brewery Perun last year to launched two craft beers – Heretyk and Sacrum.

Meanwhile, frontman Nergal has hinted there may be some post-punk influence in the sound of their next album – and says the follow-up to The Satanist could arrive in 2017.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
