Die polnische Death Metaller BEHEMOTH haben einen Deal mit NUCLEAR BLAST für Europa unterschrieben!
Hier ein Statement von NUCLEAR BLAST-A&R Manager Jaap Wagemaker:
"Behemoth have evolved into one of the best extreme technical metal bands from Europe. Last year I saw them on stage several times and everytime they came, they saw and they conquered! Leaving the locations behind in smoke and ashes. This is not a band, this is a force. Nuclear Blast is looking forward to start working with BEHEMOTH and to bring the band to the next level!"
Außerdem ein Originalstatement von BEHEMOTH-Mastermind Nergal zum neuen Deal:
"I have to honestly admit that we’ve never been more enthusiastic about the future. For last few years things have been moving forward for us like a storm and we decided to leave some secured territories and look for a new home for us. We needed something refreshing and challenging at the same time. Metal Blade [for the US] and NUCLEAR BLAST are two of the strongest and most influential labels in today’s metal scene. Persistence and determination is what we have in common with both and I’m sure our future collaboration will forge a new, inspiring chapter in BEHEMOTH’s history. I simply can’t wait to start working with these companies. We are proud and honored to be partnering with such greatly forward looking people. Expect big things to happen. Now only sky is the limit." "At the same time I’d like to show my appreciation for all the years of hard work and dedication with our past labels: Century Media and Regain Rec. I’m happy that throughout all those years we were not only business partners but also friends. I wish both nothing but success in the future".
Das letzte BEHEMOTH-Album, "The Apostasy", wurde 2007 veröffentlicht.
