Behemoth’s highly-anticipated headlining tour is a series of on-off dates from their supporting trek with Danzig. The band will make their way across 21 cities to perform headlining shows for American fans during August and September. For their show at Stage AE in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Behemoth brings along special guests Twin Temple and Imperial Triumphant. If you’re curious how an obscure metal band from Poland has made its way into the American heavy metal radar, the answer is simply because Behemoth's musicianship is quite brilliant. The band may have a sinister aesthetic, coupled with anti-christ lyrics and a controversial frontman. Primary songwriter and vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski has come under fire in his home country for his “intentionally insulting the Holy Bible.” However, the band, controversial as they come, creates outstanding compositions, and their musicality is top-tier.
Sure enough, Behemoth has amassed a massive and loyal following. This is why the band’s European summer trek, The Deathless Svmmer Tour, had them performing in multiple major festivals, such as Download, Hellfest, Sweden Rock, Graspop, and Mystic Festival.
During their upcoming North American tour, fans can anticipate Behemoth’s plethora of hits. The band has been known to release numerous hits and music videos with each studio release. In 2004, they released their breakout album, Demigod, which spawned the hits “Conquer All” and “Slaves Shall Serve.”
Their follow-up album, The Apostasy, entered the top 10 in Poland’s mainstream charts, as well as the U.S.’s Billboard 200. The album featured several fan favorites, such as the “Prometherion,” “At the Left Hand Ov God,” and “Inner Sanctum.” Since the release of their ninth studio album, Evangelion, in 2009, Behemoth has consistently charted across multiple countries, even topping the mainstream chart in Poland. Their latest album, Opvs Contra Natvram, is their third effort to go number 1. Released last year via Nuclear Blast, the album featured several titles, including “Ov My Herculean Exile,” “Off to War!” “The Deathless Sun,” and many more.
If you love heavy metal, you should experience Behemoth’s live show. The band is known for their extremely tight sets and impressive productions! So hurry and score your tickets now before they’re gone!
