BEHEMOTH Embark On Headlining Canadian Tour; New Video Posted Online

Polish extreme metal titans BEHEMOTH once again conquered North America on the highly-acclaimed Blackest of the Black tour, composed of an all-star cast that included DANZIG, CHIMAIRA, HIMSA, MORTIIS and THE AGONY SCENE. This was the group's third U.S. tour in support of their most recent, critically-acclaimed record, "Demigod". BEHEMOTH immediately embarked on a lengthy Canadian headlining tour following the massive U.S. trek. BEHEMOTH also shot a stunning new video for the track "Slaves Shall Serve", which is definitely going to catch people's attention with its intense and controversial imagery. Look for it now on Fuse's "Metal Asylum" and MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball". The video has also just been posted online at this loation.

Nergal (vocals, guitars) checks in with the following report from the road: "We've just completed Blackest of the Black tour and I guess it's time to sum it up. It was the third American tour in support to our latest record, 'Demigod', and it was probably the most important and prestigious thing we've ever done. This tour was a great challenge for us; it was a lot of hard work, but most of all it was pure fun. We did our best, and I hope all the people who turned out enjoyed it as much as we did. I bet we made some new friends and fans. We'd love to mention how much we respect you all for the support and loyalty. Words of appreciation go to Danzig for putting such a sweet lineup together. There was no weak band on the bill, and we truly enjoyed the company of all bands and crew. Some of you might think it might be too much for us, but I say hell no! We are hungry for more, and we are already working on another round of U.S. dates in April. I can promise you that this time we will deliver you a full quality package with lights, stage design and longer set. As soon we got the line up confirmed, we'll post it online.

"We are currently touring Canada, and I have to say this country treats as really well. Starting from the very first show in Vancouver we had a blast. It was my personal highlight night, for some other reason: two guys from my all-time-favorite band, the legendary BLASPHEMY, showed up, and we cracked out a bottle of Jack, ha ha. The Canadian tour is a small, underground affair, but I see so much sense in doing it and playing for the people who don’t really have much of a chance to see live metal that often. We hope to see you all soon."
