BEHEMOTH Frontman Performs With SALEM In Israel

Israeli death/black metallers SALEM were joined by special guest Nergal of the Polish metal band BEHEMOTH during their appearance at the City Hall club in Hifa on May 24 (Independence Day of Israel). "It was a blast!" Nergal writes on BEHEMOTH's web site. "I didn't expect the crowd to be sooo crazy and hungry for metal! We did two BEHEMOTH songs, a SALEM song and two cover songs (VENOM and NIN). It was a riot! What happened on stage was pure chaos and insanity. I'm really thankful I got this chance to play in front of such an excellent crowd! You made my day! I cannot forget the crazy Russian bastards who made this show even crazier — you rule! And last but not least, I have to say THANK U to Angel Ogasta and Oron for all the hospitality and taking good care of me in the Holy Land. I really hope I can come back here with full BEHEMOTH lineup and burn this place to the ground, ha ha...see ya all soon!"

In other BEHEMOTH-related news, the band will begin recording guitar tracks for their new album, "Demigod", at Poland's Hendrix Studios on June 1. On July 16, they'll deliver an "exclusive performance" in Hamburg, Germany for members of the international media. 10 days later, they will begin mixing the album at Sweden's Dug Out Studios (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, MESHUGGAH). "Demigod" will then be mastered at Stockholm's Cutting Room Studios (HYPOCRISY, IN FLAMES). An October release through Century Media Records is planned.
