BEHEMOTH's return to touring in North America has been nothing short of triumphant. Shows on the Decibel Magazine Tour with WATAIN, THE DEVIL'S BLOOD and IN SOLITUDE have been jam-packed with fans eager to see BEHEMOTH take the stage. The mutual energy between the bands on the stage and the crowds throughout North America is immediately evident.
Commented BEHEMOTH frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski: "I'm sitting in The Old Absynthe House in New Orleans as I'm writing these words. It's said that Crowley used to spend time here, getting wasted and gaining inspiration. A good place to hang out, my friends.
"BEHEMOTH is having a day off and we have only 10 shows left on the tour.
"This is the fastest-running trek I've ever done in my life!
"There are not enough words to describe how comfortable and happy we are with the fact that we are touring in such noble company and shows are being so massively attended. Every night when I'm off stage, I have the feeling this was the highlight of the tour. People are fuckin' raging and we are feeding on that energy. Thank you."
Nergal continued, elaborating on the inspiration behind the tour, "When I was putting this bill together with my manager months ago, I wanted to recreate the feeling of the early '90s when the 'Fuck Christ' tour hit Europe (BLASPHEMY, ROTTING CHRIST and IMMORTAL). It's fifteen years later, but we are still trying to make an impact, do exciting things, think outside of the box and eventually fuck up the system with attitude that's far from compromise and political correctness. We are on the right path. Join us or step away…"
Kevin and Ian of the "Metal Shop" radio show, which airs airs every Saturday night from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. on the Seattle station KISW 99.9 FM, conducted an interview with Nergal prior to BEHEMOTH's's April 20 concert at El Corazon in Seattle, Washington.
