Polish black metallers BEHEMOTH kicked off a European tour KRISIUN, INCANTATION and RAGNAROK on Oct. 21 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. BEHEMOTH mainman Nergal has issued the following update on the tour's progress so far:
"I'm proud to say that the tour is moving on with no bigger problems. We've just done London which was simply great. It seems like playing this city is like playing Warsaw, ha ha...thank u friends for showing up. Dublin...well, I wish the show itself could have been better...many stage problems pissed us off from the moment we stepped on the stage but the crowd didn't care much. They went totally nuts...it was a blast! Many Polish friends made this evening a very memorable...then Manchester...I must say I am SOOOO sorry bout canceling this show. We've never played there before and we were really looking forward to it. But the whole situation sucked from the very beginning. I wish people could understand that we also have our demands and when they face totally amateurish promoters, it may end like this. We had no other choice than leave. Nijmigeen, Holland was fuckin killer...and it seems like all Dutch venues we blast in that tour. I love that country...thank u all out there for your support and all the promoters for professional work. we WILL be back as soon we can! That is a promise!"
As previously reported, BEHEMOTH's latest CD, "Demigod", entered the Polish album chart at position No. 15. The album — scheduled for release in the U.S. in early 2005 — was mixed by BEHEMOTH frontman Nergal and producer Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, IN FLAMES) at Dug-Out studios in Uppsala, Sweden. Mastering duties were handled at the Cutting Room studios in Stockholm. A guest appearance by NILE's Karl Sanders is included in the track "Xul".
