"Global Evisceration", the fourth DVD from CANNIBAL CORPSE, sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 17 on the Top Music Videos chart. The disc also landed at No. 5 on the Canadian chart.

Released on March 15 via Metal Blade Records, "Global Evisceration" was shot and edited by director Denise Korycki (Wild Wind Productions) who also worked on the group's "Centuries of Torment - The First 20 Years" DVD in addition to releases from such other bands as AS I LAY DYING, MASTODON, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and SUPERJOINT RITUAL.

BEHEMOTH recently filmed a video for the song "Lucifer" off the band's current album, "Evangelion". The clip was once again directed by Grupa 13, which features Polish singer, guitarist, and poet Maciej Malenczuk, who also contributed guest vocals to the track.

BEHEMOTH in June rehearsed for the first time since Darski, was diagnosed with leukemia in August 2010. The group also started writing a new song, which was described by Nergal as "fast, furious, but more evil in a way."

In an interview with Metal Sucks, Nergal stated about BEHEMOTH's upcoming touring activities, "The October shows [in Poland] are just to get warmed up. Then we might do some shows in Australia and Asia that's the plan. Then the priority for early 2012 is a European tour, then shortly after that, a U.S. tour. This is our top priority for the next year and we're going to fucking do it!"

He added, "Just wait and see us on the stage. You'll see. I'm not going to reveal anything about it, but we It's not gonna just be BEHEMOTH. It's not like time stood still for us, like we were frozen in time and are just going to appear with the same entourage and in the same outfits. No. We're going to come back, we want to remind people of our existence obviously, but we want to make a fucking impact, an impression. We want to show them that, hey, we are still fucking evolving. We're not just hoping that you'll come to see us because I was sick. Fuck that. I'll be better soon and we're going to deliver!"
