BEHEMOTH Signs New Contract with Nuclear Blast

Highly anticipated new studio album from Polish extreme metal powerhouse due this fall!

BEHEMOTH—arguably the biggest extreme metal band in the world—has extended and expanded their contract with Nuclear Blast, who will now distribute the group’s music worldwide outside of their home country. The group originally signed with Nuclear Blast Europe prior to the release of 2009’s Evangelion, but their forthcoming album—which is tentatively set for a Fall 2021 release—will be their first to be released by the label outside of the Old Continent.

Despite numerous attempts to be silenced by Poland’s religious right, BEHEMOTH has steadfastly refused to compromise, and Nergal believes that the best is yet to come. “Nuclear Blast has been a household name in metal for decades, and BEHEMOTH has been part of that long and illustrious history,” he says. “But now is about the future, and we look forward to beginning BEHEMOTH’s next chapter with a refocused and revitalized team at Nuclear Blast!

Jens Prueter, Nuclear Blast Europe’s head of A&R adds, “It’s a great pleasure to extend our partnership for the worldwide release of BEHEMOTH’s upcoming studio albums. Their 30-year journey has not yet reached its pinnacle, and we are more than proud to assist them on their way to being not only the biggest extreme metal band but also one of the most exciting rock acts of the next decade. There are just a few bands that have the vision and will to dominate the music scene. Special thanks also to their management powerhouse 5B—namely, Adam Foster and Justin Arcangel—for making this happen on all levels.”

BEHEMOTH is currently working on the follow-up to 2018’s I Loved You At Your Darkest. The group is also preparing for its biggest live production yet—a co-headlining tour with ARCH ENEMY that will see the bands play arenas across Europe.
