Legendary blackened death metal act Behemoth just dropped their brand new EP, A Forest, digitally worldwide, with physical copies also available to order. Check out the lead single, “Evoe”, below!

Front-man Nergal comments:

“Evoe” and “Shadows Ov Ea Cast Upon Golgotha” are two brand-new, unheard songs that continue on from ‘ILYAYD’ left off. We’re fortunate enough to have had more than enough music for the record which afforded us this transitional EP release as we move towards our new offerings. These songs may be B-Sides, but they’re really strong and fresh! At the very least, we hope it gives you Legions something to distract yourself from the monotony of our collective situation. Enjoy!

Behemoth also shared the video for “A Forest (Live from Merry Christless, Warsaw, Poland, December 2018)”, a cover version of The Cure’s classic, which features Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth, and was directed and produced by Volca Media.

Nergal adds:

Covering music outside of metal is a challenge – covering legendary music is an even greater challenge…that is what drove us throughout this process. A lot of bands try it and a lot of bands fail; subjectively, I love the outcome and it ranks amongst my favourite Behemoth covers alongside Killing Joke’s ‘Total Invasion’ and Siekiera’s ‘Ludzie Wschodu’. 

For the second time in 2020, I’ve recruited Niklas Kvarforth from Shining. Niklas’ psychotic appearance, attitude and vibe was a key element to our representation of the music and the only man who could give the performance the same depth as the original.
