Behemoth start work on Satanist follow-up


Behemoth frontman Adam ‘Nergal’ Darski has revealed he’s started work on the band’s next album.

The singer said in January that he has been inspired by the “avant-garde” when writing the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist, adding that it would be a “new chapter” for the band and redefine their music.

Now he says in an Instagram post that he’s playing “dark stuff” on his Gretsch White Falcon guitar.

He says: “Well, It has begun. The process. New music for Behemoth. Interesting to hear how the dark stuff sounds when played on White Falcon. It kinda gets me on a different track and I’m liking it a lot.”

Darski also said he expected the new material to have post-punk influences.

Behemoth are playing The Satanist in full on tour this year.
