A continuation of ILYAYD with a special feature to boast.
BEHEMOTH look to continue the trailblazing streak that kicked off with The Satanist (2014) in a way many didn't expect, speaking to the prowess that lies within the Polish ranks. Today, the band share a cover of THE CURE classic A Forest featuring guest vocals by SHINING's Niklas Kvarforth, offering a sadistic take on the timeless track. The cover will be joined by two brand-new BEHEMOTH songs, Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha and Evoe to make up the 4-song A Forest EP. Set to arrive on May 29th via Metal Blade Records, A Forest finds Nergal and co. tapping into a different realm of their creativity while also serving as a continuation of I Loved You At Your Darkest (2018).
BEHEMOTH frontman Nergal on the release:
"Covering music outside of metal is a challenge - covering legendary music is an even greater challenge...that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail; subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favourite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke's 'Total Invasion' and Siekiera's 'Ludzie Wschodu'.
For the second time in 2020, I've recruited Niklas Kvarforth from Shining. Niklas' psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original."
