A first new sign of life from Polish Black/Death Metal legends BEHEMOTH comes in form of the song “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” off their upcoming new record “The Satanist.” The album was produced by Behemoth, Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy and Daniel Bergstrand in Hertz Studio. “The Satanist” was mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer) and mastered by Ted Jensen (Metallica, AC/DC) at Sterling Sound. The cover art, which will also be revealed on December 4th, is a painting by renowned Russian painter and occultist, Denis Forkas. For the cover, Nergal’s own blood was included in the paint. Additional artwork was handled by Metastazis and Zbigniew Bielak.
The Grupa 13 produced video for “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” will also be released on December 4th.
