Behemoth may begin working on a new album in 2016; new project in the works

Behemoth 9

Blackened death metallers Behemoth may begin working on the follow-up to 2014’s The Satanist. In an interview with Rock Sverige, bandleader Nergal spoke of the possibility that they will begin writing for the new album along with mention of a very secretive project that the band are currently working on. Regarding the ongoing project he says:

“I really don’t wanna talk that much about it until we have some truths. There’s some stuff happening, but I can’t go into any details. It’s something that’s gonna be pretty big. It’s a big deal with some big names and there’s a pretty dark story behind it, which is worldwide known, because it’s a classic. We’ve been asked to make some music for it and we’re trying. We have even recorded something, but it’s too early to officially give any details to the public.”

As far as the possibility of writing a new record he comments:

“…I can say that when we were in the studio fucking around with ideas for this theater project, it kind of triggered my creativity and I think I’ll be getting into writing mode earlier than I expected that I would. It’s still too early, but I think I wanna start doing some work in 2016 and I think it would be really smart and good to have a new album out in 2017. But I know how it is — you say something in an interview, and then [people] say, ‘You promised there was gonna be a record in 2017.'”
