Behemoth albums Evangelion and The Satanist are to be released on cassette later this month, the band have announced.
They’ll both launch on February 27 via Old School Records, with 2009’s Evangelion arriving on a choice of navy blue or silver cassette, while 2014’s The Satanist will be available in brown and white.
Behemoth are currently in the studio working on The Satanist follow-up, with frontman Nergal recently telling Metal Hammer: “We always want to make sure that when an album’s done, you can be sure that we’re proud of it.
“As long as we’re super-happy, that’s the moment we’re going to hand it over to people.”
He adds: “Evangelion was the most perfectly recorded and perfect sounding record, but then The Satanist was something else.
“The new one is going to be something else once again, I’m sure about it. So when people tell me, ‘You need to top The Satanist,’ I don’t need to top anything. I just want to make sure we take curves with our career. We’re gonna take a different direction in order not to get stuck in the same pattern.”
Behemoth will head out on the road from May. Find a full list of their 2018 tour dates below.
