Behemoth were formed in Poland by band mastermind Nergal in 1991. The band's sound grew from an unusual combination of strong Black Metal roots & powerful atmospherics into brutal Extreme Metal of the original kind. Satanica was Behemoth's fourth album. Originally released in 1999, and recorded at Starcraft Stimulation Studios, the album was produced & mixed by Nergal, and contains 8 songs of pummelling, blackened, Death Metal. Technical riffs and whirlwind drums, back up mainman Nergal's unearthly vocals to produce the band's most intense & brutal release. Behemoth are one of the true leaders of the Extreme Metal scene with a strong catalogue of albums and years of extensive live work, allied to an increasing mastery of the genre. Brutal and incomparable.
