Lukasz Dunaj gathered in 490 pages what he considers to be “Poland’s response to Mötley Crüe‘s biography ‘The Dirt’. “Behemoth: Devil’s Consquistadors” tells the history of the (in)famous blackened death metal band, with quotes and anecdotes from current and former members, old photos, flyers, lyric sheets and even interviews with Tomas Krajewski, Rob Darken, Graal and Havok, to name a few. Here are a couple of glimpses at it:

From the foreword by Krzysztof Azarewicz:
“If, as a cultural anthropologist, I were to point to a single cosmic force which Behemoth‘s music expresses, I would name it not Satan but Dionysus. A deity that represents not only the intoxicating influence of cosmic energies and earthly benefits, but also their benevolent healing properties. A deity of strength and pride. A deity of creative might.”

Nergal discusses the acquisition of his first electric guitar:
“The first communion was a very important moment for me. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. Of course, not as a religion experience – I didn’t understand anything and couldn’t care less. Same as all the other kids. We all stood there with our votive candles and waited for one thing. Cash. The first communion must be one moment when you get the most money you’re ever going to get as a child. And for this money, I bought myself my first electric guitar. Not a bike, no Legos – a guitar.”

Metal Blade Records is proud to release this work of art on the 24th February, pre-orders already available at metalblade.com/behemoth
