Behemoth share writing session clip


Behemoth’s Nergal has shared a clip of a jamming session for their upcoming release.

The frontman posted the video tagging his band’s Instagram, alongside the caption: “Magick is happening.”

Nergal confirmed they’d started work on the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist earlier this year. He also hinted that the next album may take a post-punk influence.

He said: “I just try to keep my eyes and mind open for other genres. It’s just amazing, the older I get, the more into blues I get. It’s not direct inspiration for the radical music we make, but I do like avant-garde stuff.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if on the next Behemoth album you heard some post-punk influences – the beats especially. I’m really keen on the primitive, primal tempos, so you never know.”

Nergal has also offered fans a taste of his blues, country and folk side-project. The debut release is due out in September this year.

Behemoth have a string of European festivals and headline dates scheduled throughout the coming months.
